Oh, and the thread starter? Banned years ago. It can happen.

A lot of people would have done Indy well, but just differently. How differently? We will just have to wait until they reboot Indy at a younger age with someone else.

Ah, DiscoLad, you're such a kidder. You've probably seen him, but look up Anthony Ingruber's Harrison Ford impersonations on YouTube. He's actually good at a whole heap of impersonations. He should have been Indy's son or at least be used for a reboot as a 'younger' Indy.

Tom Selleck's Audition

I was looking at one of my favourite news sites here in the UK and from what it seems in this article, Tom Selleck's audition tape has been found and released. On the page, there's some pictures of Selleck with Sean Young, wearing a black jacket and grey fedora.

article here:

I feel bad for Selleck over this (and I always have), but not for me. I can't imagine anyone fleshing out the role as well as Ford has.

Yeah, but I don't think it would have been such a success if he had played the role. Ford is a better actor by far.

This is great! This is how stupid rumors start, one media outlet "quoting" another. What a bunch of tripe...nowhere is Selleck himself quoted, not even in the Daily Mail "article."

The comments are golden too:

So, Tom, if you are reading this, don't let it haunt you that you didn't take the Indiana Jones role.

Tom needs to relax. There's no way he could've pulled it off.

I know there are some other Selleck threads, but whatever. I agree that the movie wouldn't be what it is without Ford in the lead role. Selleck had a shot at super fame when he made a few mediocre movies. Didn't ever happen for him. So he's always been relegated to being one of those tv guys who made some movies, but is best remembered for a famous show. Ala David Hasselhoff or Richard Dean Anderson. Great on the small screen, but not enough star power to really carry a film.

I personally think that with Selleck in the lead role, Indiana Jones would have been little more than what it aspired to mimic -- a B movie.

Look I totally agree that Ford played it to perfection, but I don't how one actor (Selleck) could make a movie that's in the hands of Spielberg, Lucas, Williams, Kasdan, Marshall, and all the other creative geniuses they had, a B-Movie. I don't think that's fair to Selleck.

These bits from the Daily Mail article are hogwash, tabloid journalism. Selleck didn't decide to turn the role down in favour of playing Magnum, the real story is that CBS wouldn't allow him to do it.

I also don't see how "Magnum P.I." was a "cult television series". It was one of the most popular TV shows of its time!

The Daily Mail article was bad enough, this one is Fox News. Expect nothing but garbage from them.

Of course it isn't fair to Selleck. It still would have been a good movie and everyone would be saying, "Nobody else could have played that role. Tom Selleck IS Indy!"

The funny thing is, this thread was created exactly 9 hours after this one: Tom Selleck's Audition.

Both of them should probably be merged with the main hread: Tom Selleck would have been a better Indy.

No, what I'm saying is that Tom Selleck would have been Indy and that's it. No one would know any different nor be able to compare his portrayal to Harrison's (especially since Harry never auditioned for the role so there are no audition tapes to compare with).

I don't think Selleck would have been "as good" as Harrison but it still would have been a great flick. Within the collective group of immense talent which produced such an excellent picture, Harrison is just *one* factor.

You might be right Stoo, but something about Selleck to me would make it cheesy. I don't hate Tom Selleck but I think Ford brings a special something to all his roles that Selleck has never been able to achieve. IMHO. And part of Raiders success is what Ford brought to the character and I believe Selleck would not have pulled off just watching him read for the part.
