Chris Pratt Says Indiana Jones Would Be Awesome Opportunity

chris-pratt-indiana-jones

While Chris Pratt wouldn’t admit to knowing anything about all those rumors about him being in the running to play Indiana Jones, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor did say it would be an “awesome opportunity” to play the character, during a press appearance to talk about his Hasty Pudding Man of the Year award.

Pratt received the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year honor and was roasted on Friday night at Harvard University. During the roast, there were references made to Pratt’s past and upcoming films. One of the presenters told Pratt that he was going to give him “one of the Infinity Stones,” before presenting him with a bra with dinosaurs on it instead.

Pratt also spoke about his recent appearance at Christopher’s Haven, praising the organization for the work it does for kids battling cancer. Pratt also said that he planned to continue his charitable appearances.

“I said it before, and I plan to live by it,” said Pratt. “Going into doing Guardians of the Galaxy if it was ever successful enough where it would actually make an impact on a kid’s life in a positive way, I would be there to try to do that, and I’ve been really blessed and happy to do that.”

  1. I never really considered it, but it might actually work.  As much as I love Harrison Ford, he's just too old...it would be awesome to see him show up in a cameo spot.  Kind of like a passing to the new guard.  It also needs Spielberg. :)

  2. If the Indiana Jones stories are to continue someone else has to pick it up.  Chris Pratt might be the one.

    Yeah, I think we can do without Spielburg afterall he was responsible for the single worst part of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull a certain actor named Shia Labeouf. Although, his character in and of itself were poorly written to begin with.

    I'd personally rather that they leave Indy alone. Indy AND Drake.. TBH I can't see Chris Pratt playing Indy. I'd rather see him as Drake if an Uncharted film is inevitable. Fact is he turned down that role to avoid being typecast.. Playing Indy would be no different.
