This guy may resemble a young Harrison Ford but sounds nothing like him to me. His online video impression of Han Solo is pretty weak, in my opinion.

Having read the various thoughts, ideas and even rants of people on this subject there seems to be three definitive schools of thought ...

1) Purists - They will accept Harrison Ford in the role and no-one else. Ford is Indy. Except no substitute cracking the whip.

2) Clone-ists - People willing to accept a 'clone' of Harrison Ford (such as Anthony Ingruber) in the role. An actor who will mimic/resemble Harrison Ford's portrayal of Indy, not the performer's own interpretation.

3) Realists - People who appreciate that Harrison Ford is now realistically too old to play the character as we love to see him. Young, fit, full of daring-do. They also understand that the movie industry will cast a younger (and possibly popular) actor in the role that will result in money being made, rather than appeasing fans' wishes.

I may be wrong but these seem to be the trains of thought members on this forum seem to be aligning to. I know which camp I'm in

I would argue that the Clone-ists are just a subset of the Purists (AKA Ford Fundamentalists or Ford Fetishists*)

The Realists (AKA Progressionists**) of course have it right

Is it possible to be a realist cloneist? I know and accept that a new actor will be playing Indy, but I want it to be someone who I believe to be a younger version of Harrison Ford's character. That does not mean he has to look and sound exactly like him. Sean Patrick Flanery did not look like Harrison Ford and I accepted him as Young Indy. Chris Pratt will satisfy me. I am impressed with this Anthony Ingruber, but I don't know if I want to see him as Indy. Maybe as Han Solo in the 2018 spinoff movie, but I don't know.

So what you're practically saying is that you want a Caucasian male with handsome looks into the role.

For what it's worth, I believe that's what Disney is aiming for too. If casting, say, a black woman for the part would make me do a bunch of double takes (even if I would reserve my final judgment 'til seeing the final product), I guess I'm a 'realist cloneist' too, despite all my progressivism.

Watching Adam Driver's taciturn appearance at Comic-Con's Star Wars Episode VII panel reminded me of Harrison Ford somewhat, making me wonder if he could possibly bring the same kind of gravitas to the role (not that Disney will be looking for that).

In other news, look at this sexy, sexy hunk of a man.



That's Murray Bartlett of HBO's Looking. And here is in a really cool sheep's wool lined coat!



By casting Bartlett you get: a gay actor; a gay Indiana Jones; and a mustache! It's the trifecta of wants!

And you just know he's a top like good ol' Harry.

Don't we have to rule out all the young Harrison Fords before we get to the Tom Sellecks?

Hahaha...I was thinking exactly the same thing. It's so obvious.

Does it matter though if he's a Top?

Like a young Tom he looks lovely.
