By the way, I want to Bond-ify the Indiana Jones franchise.

Now, that's not to say I want to give Indy high-tech gadgets and an Aston Martin. What I'd love to do is replace Harrison Ford, but still have the "Indiana Jones" character. I want to give him oodles of adventures for decades and decades and constantly replace him with someone younger, cuter, and more fit.

Oh yeah, and I want to suspend all realities of time and space the way Bond does. (Seriously...if Casino Royale is a prequel to the story, is it really right that it's set in present day with present-day gadgets and present-day cars? I think they take the element of "time" out of the equation as much as possible, but somethings just can't be helped.)

So yeah. Indiana Jones for another 30 years...but maybe it's time for Harrison Ford to step down. Leonardo DiCaprio might make a pretty archeologist. Or maybe someone a little more James Denton. Oooo...he would make a very handsome vine-swinging, khaki-and-leather-clad, daredevil professor of archeology. But John Rhys-Davies can stay on a little longer...just like Judi Dench has surpassed Pierce Brosnan.

Anyone else have a suggestion for a replacement Indy?

Oh, and this list is just cool. And by cool, I mean geeky.
