Could Robert Pattinson aka Edward Cullen be the next Indiana Jones?!?

    According to various sources, it's rumored that Robert Pattinson is the current front runner to replace Harrison Ford in the iconic role of Indiana Jones.  Please taking mind, that this is only a rumor, and it's NOT confirmed.  Therefore, I would probably take this thread with a grain of salt until something official comes out. 

    Having said all this though, what do you think about the possibility?  Do you think Robert Pattinson could pull off the role?  Or do you think he'd be a bad choice for the part?  Please discuss.

      Dear God, I hope NOT!  There's a swagger to Indy that Pattinson could NEVER pull off.  I heard rumors about possibly Bradley Cooper, which I'd be far quicker to accept.  smile

            Might be. I read you somewhere and the way you spoke. Hence it spiked a bit of interest.

      I doubt that is an accurate rumor.  The fan bases are too far apart for that to be a viable choice.

    It would be hard to accept anyone else as Indy. I agree that it would be easier to accept someone like Bradley Cooper or maybe even Michael Fassbender.

    I'm still hoping this is just a rumor and not fact. There is NO WAY that Pattinson could do for Indiana Jones what Harrison Ford did. He's just not a good actor. That's my story and I'm sticking to it smile

    Can't you just see Indy sparkling all over?  And Pattinson would never survive without that coiff, and Indy wears a hat when he's not in the classroom.

    thanks for responding guys.  I personally don't think Robert Pattinson is that bad of an actor.  I mean if you watch his performance in "Remember Me" and "Water for Elephants", he's actually very good.  I think it was the script that held him back in the twilight films. 

    Having said all that though, I don't think he'd be the right fit indiana jones personally.  For one, he doesn't seem to have the swagger, or the confidence that harrison brought to the role.  Plus, let's not forget that indiana jones also had something of a sense of humor, which is something im not sure robert pattinson could pull off.

    Plus, whenever indiana jones isn't going on adventures, he's teaching in a classroom.  And no offense to robert pattinson, but he doesn't strike me as the type that would be intellectual enough to be a college professor at some prestigious university. 

    I know Chris Pine is also rumored for the part, but he doesn't really strike me as the college professor type either.  Granted, he can bring the swagger and confidence like we saw in star trek.  we know has a sense of humor like we saw in "this means war"...even though that film sucked.  And, we know he can do action scenes, but i can't imagine him as a college professor.

    Out of all the rumors though, I think Bradley Cooper would probably be the best fit to replace ford simply because he embodies everything that makes indiana jones an iconic character.  He has a sense of humor.  he's got the swagger and confidence.  Heck, he even looks like he could play a college professor back in the 40's.

    The only iffy part about him though is whether or not he can do action scenes, as I don't think we've seen Bradley Cooper do too many of those.  However, I think he'd be the best choice out of all the rumored candidates.

    However, to be honest with all you guys, I would love more than anything to see Harrison Ford come back to the role one last time before Disney reboots the series. 

    Yes, I'm aware Ford is well into his 70's, and he can't keep doing these movies forever.  However, the last indiana jones film got mixed reactions from fans and critics that i would love to see harrison ford redeem the character for one last time; similar to what we saw with Stallone reprising his role as Rocky and Rambo.

    Many people rolled their eyes when they heard he was going to make one more movie with those characters, but Stallone did a great job not only redeeming the follies of "rocky 5" and "rambo 3", but he also made one last film for each character ("Rocky Balboa" and "Rambo" respectively) that felt like a true ending for them, for stallone to finally retire those characters.  I'd love to see that happen with ford's indiana jones.  One last film that'll not only give the character the treatment he richly deserves, but a final send off that gives the character closure. 

    After they do that, then they can reboot indiana jones, but i want to see closure to ford's version first.
