13 Actors Who Could Be Indiana Jones

by at .  Updated at . Comments

With the news last week that Twilight actor Robert Pattinson is being considered to fill the shoes of Indiana Jones supposedly left by Harrison Ford as he makes more Star Wars movies, we present some others who could don the fedora and take up that whip. 

Pattinson could be Indy, but might we suggest others as well.

There is so much that an actor has to bring to the role: They have to be book smart and action savvy, and that is a complicated part to cast.

Click through and check out our 13 actors who could be Indiana Jones!


1. Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston
Tom Hiddleston is our guy to play Indiana Jones if they truly are replacing Harrison Ford. He can do book smart and also be an action man, as seen by his work on those Marvel movies. Plus, the man can act like nobody's business.

2. Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch
Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the greatest actors of his generation. And that is a great place to start while casting Indiana Jones. We also think he would look good in that fedora. And you know with his work as Sherlock Holmes, he can pull off book smart and street smart.

3. Chris Evans

Chris Evans
He's already super, but imagine him in a role that is grounded in a (somewhat) reality? It could totally work! And, he looks good in a leather jacket!

4. Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson
Well, if Lucasfilm is considering him, it's good enough for us. We think there are better choices, but he has to be on this list because he's up for the role. And if you think about it, it would be a wildly different Indiana Jones, but it could still work.

5. Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper
In Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones' performances, there's just a hint of wise-assery. Bradley Cooper would nail that part and we think so much more. He would certainly nail the adventurer part of the role, and if you've seen him in The Words, he can do book smart too!

6. Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling
Given that Ryan Gosling has to be considered for everything because of his talent and incredible appeal with the ladies (something Ford had and has in droves), Gosling has to be on this list.
