‘Indiana Jones 5’ Cast News: Chris Pratt Taking Over Role From Harrison Ford After ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Success? [PHOTOS]
The rumor mill continues churning out reports that a bevy of younger actors are being considered to replace Harrison Ford in an as-of-yet unconfirmed Indiana Jones 5-and the list has only gotten bigger.
The most recent name to be put in the running is none other than Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt-and he could be the strongest contender to replace the 72-year-old actor in his iconic role yet.
According to Fandango, the actor's versatility and rising star factor thanks to both Guardians and 2015's Jurassic World, could make him a great actor if Disney should reboot the franchise.
"He's got the good looks, the charisma, the dance moves and a wicked sense of humor," the website says. "He's everything you want in a leading man, really, and his role as Star-Lord in Guardians has already drawn comparisons to a young Harrison Ford."
Of course, Pratt taking on the role is just more speculation, and his name is not the first that has been mentioned to be taking over Ford's role-especially after Ford broke his leg while on the set of Star Wars: VII.
Before Pratt, the two biggest names which were floated around as potential Ford replacements were Pratt's Guardians co-star Bradley Cooper, and Twilight lead Robert Pattinson.
While Cooper never officially denied the rumors, Pattinson did speak out about them, saying he had never even been approached for the role while walking the red carpet for his film The Rover.
"I don't know why. Why is that coming out?" he asked when a reporter asked him if he could possibly be playing the whip-cracking adventurer. "I honestly don't understand what it's all about. Man, I wish!"
