Actor Harrison Ford told NBC’s “Today” on Friday that once he’s gone, his beloved character Indiana Jones should be gone as well.
“When I’m gone, he’s gone,” Ford told host Craig Melvin.
“Indiana Jones number five …” Melvin began, to which Ford replied, “He’s in here somewhere.” (RELATED: Harrison Ford Becomes Real-Life Indiana Jones)
“It’s … it’s … he better be, because it’s coming out!” Melvin continued. “When you’re done with that role, who would you like to see as Indiana Jones?”
Ford laughed and put a hand on Melvin’s shoulder, saying, “Nobody — is gonna be Indiana Jones. Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones.”
“So when you’re gone, it’s gone.”

“When I’m gone, he’s gone. Get it in there!” Ford tapped his own head, then laughed. “This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine.”
Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor character in “Wonder Woman” was reportedly inspired by Indiana Jones — but it’s Marvel Comics Universe’s Star Lord, Chris Pratt, who has been rumored to be Hollywood’s choice to take up the fedora and whip.
Here’s the story, Mr. Spielberg: Indiana Jones (aka Harrison Ford) goes looking for the Fountain of Youth. Shocker: He finds it. Younger Indie (aka Chris Pratt) exits the water. Franchise saved. You’re welcome. #Hollywood #movies

I love all five Indiana Jones movies, particularly the one starring a fan-made image of Chris Pratt. pic.twitter.com/f4ng1YEmT1

Indiana Jones movie idea: IJ and the Fountain Of Youth. Ford finds it, drinks. Looks up, it’s Chris Pratt. Puts on hat, says “Still fits.”

An interesting question, to be sure.
