Harrison Ford denies that Chris Pratt will inherit his Indiana Jones role and insists that he is the ONLY actor who can play the hero: & # 39; When I'm gone, he's gone & # 39;
There were rumors that Chris Pratt could take over the role of Indiana Jones in an upcoming movie.
But Harrison Ford suggested those claims to rest when he was on the Today's show on Friday morning.
The 76-year-old resident of Illinois said that if he did it his way, he would be the only actor to ever play the adventurous professor of archeology. & # 39; Don't you understand? I'm Indiana Jones. When I'm gone, he's gone. It's easy, & # 39; & # 39; said actress Calista Flockhart's husband.
He is back: Harrison Ford appeared on the Today show on Friday morning to promote his new film, The Secret Life Of Pets 2, to be released on June 7
Ford seemed to confuse Chris Pine with Chris Pratt when he added: & # 39; This is a great way to tell Chris Pine this. I'm sorry, man. & # 39;
Pratt is best known for playing an Indiana Jones type swashbuckler in Jurassic World and the sequel.
He is the first actor to resemble the role of the smart but arrogant Jones.
It's MY role people: The actor said he's the only person Indiana Jones can ever play
Sorry guy: It was said that Chris Pratt, who was seen here in Jurassic World in 2015, would replace Ford, but that turned out not to be true
But unfortunately it seems that this will not happen soon.
However, it is a good thing that Ford is ready to breathe new life into its character. Indiana Jones 5 comes out in 2021 with Steven Spielberg as director.
The screenplay is by David Koepp, George Lucas and Jonathan Kasdan.
His favorite: The actor and pilot are married to Calista Flockhart, shown here in 2016
Harrison has played Indiana in four films: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Temple of Doom (1984), The Last Crusade (1989) and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
His roadside co-stars are Karen Allen, Kate Capshaw, Sean Conney and Shia LaBeouf.
The Walt Disney Company owns the intellectual property of Indiana Jones since the acquisition of Lucasfilm, the production company of the series, in 2012.
A talent for success: Indiana Jones is not the only highly successful Ford franchise. He also played Han Solo in the Star Wars films; seen in The Return Of The Jedi
His son attacked: But he was killed by his son Ben Solo turned Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) in The Force Awakens
