Marvel’s Chris Pratt responds to rumours he’s the next Indiana Jones – DigitalSpy.com

Chris Pratt has addressed long-standing rumours that he’s set to take over the role of Indiana Jones.

The actor returns as Emmet in The Lego Movie 2, but he also lends his voice to new character Rex Dangervest, who he has a lot in common with.

Like Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Star-Lord, Rex is a galaxy defender. He’s also a cowboy like Pratt’s character in The Magnificent Seven remake, and a raptor trainer like Jurassic World‘s Owen Grady.

And Rex is also an archaeologist, a career path Pratt is yet to take on screen. So does this mean Pratt is about to become the next Indiana Jones?

Speaking about Rex to RTÉ Entertainment, Pratt said: “Well you know, I told (writers) Chris (Miller) and Phil (Lord), ‘Listen please allow me to be your muse, dig into my life as much as you want’, and they pulled that out of the zeitgeist.

“There was speculation around whether or not I would do Indiana Jones and I think that’s why they put that in there, maybe hedging their bets in case I did that one day, the movie would hold up.

“But there’s no more information about that now than there was before.”

The actor went on to joke about what character he might play in the next movie – just in case fiction does become reality.

“In the third LEGO Movie they’re going to skewer in my career choices but they’ll all be super-meta indie drama Oscars stuff, I will have been doing a lot of that,” he said.

“His name will be Oscar and he will be gold.”

The Lego Movie 2 will be released on February 8 in the UK and US.
