Steven Spielberg Teases Female Lead For 5th ‘Indiana Jones’ Film

Fans have been waiting on more details for the 5th Indiana Jones film, but director Steven Spielberg is already teasing replacing Harrison Ford’s character with a completely new female lead. Harrison Ford has played the role of Indy for all four installments of the franchise. However, the fifth installment will be by James Mangold, but Spielberg already teased ideas and thoughts for the new film back in 2018.

During an interview, he suggested a female lead with a whole new name/character background could be the next leading character. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” he said in the interview.

Will there be a female lead replacing Harrison Ford as Indy?

So, what would be Ford’s future with the role if he were to be replaced? Only time will tell. “This will be Harrison Ford’s last ‘Indiana Jones’ movie, I am pretty sure. But it will certainly continue after that,” says Spielberg. The reason for teasing a female lead came from his own influence of strong women in his own life. He added, “My mom was strong. She had a voice, she had a very strong opinion. I have been very lucky to be influenced by women, several of whom I have just loved madly – my mom and my wife.”

Who will be the next female actress introduced in the fifth installment? Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been confirmed to be starring in this next film, but her role has not been disclosed. “I’m thrilled to be starting a new adventure, collaborating with a dream team of all-time great filmmakers. Steven, Harrison, Kathy, Frank, and John are all artistic heroes of mine,” Mangold said at the time.

Indiana Jones fans remember that it was teased Shia LaBeouf’s character may be picking up the whip in the next film. At the end of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Mutt (who we eventually learn is Indy’s son from a previous relationship with Marion Ravenwood) picks up Indy’s hat, which is then snatched away from him by the famed archeologist. However, Shia has not yet been cast in the upcoming film, so it’s safe to say that may not be the case for the plot.

Mark Harmon Of ‘NCIS’ Addresses Leaving The Show

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Rumors have been going around alleging that Mark Harmon will be done with NCIS after season 18, and now he has addressed those rumors. He’s never shied away from telling it like it is – and has actually said that everyone on the show is replaceable. “I really believe this, but I think anybody on the show is replaceable,” he told James Corden back in 2015.

“The truth is this show births characters leaving, it always has…It’s not my choice [that] I’m number one but I think anybody is replaceable, I believe that.” So, the question is, does that include Harmon himself?

Will Mark Harmon leave ‘NCIS’?

Back during season 16 of the show, he gave an interview to PEOPLE about when would be the right time for the show to call it quits. He said that if there’s ever a time he walks into the writer’s room and saying “I don’t know what to do,” then that’s the cue. “I’ve been around long enough to know what this is. That commitment is part of what I signed up for; I know when this show ends that’s it—there won’t be anything else like this for me,” Harmon explains.

“Now, if I ever witness them walking into the writers’ room with their heads down, feeling they’ve done it all, that would be the time to say, ‘I think I’m done here.’ But there is still a real feeling of creativity and a sense of reinvention on our set,” Harmon says. So, it sounds like fans don’t have to worry about NCIS going anywhere anytime soon… at least, for now.

Now, it’s important to note that Harmon’s contract with the show is set to end after season 18. It’s not clear if he will continue with the show, but it’s also not clear if the show will continue without him and his character. Additionally, according to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS wanted to end NCIS if Harmon walked away. However, with the actor found this out, he already talked about appearing in a handful of episodes for season 19 if it was renewed. Yeah, it sounds like fans can rest assured for now.

Voice Actor Hank Azaria Apologizes For Playing ‘The Simpson’s Apu

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Hank Azaria recently apologized for voicing the character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon on The Simpsons for three decades. The character was an Indian-born convenience store clerk, and it took Azaria a long while to understand why some people took issue with his voice acting for the character. He now feels like he needs to apologize to “every single Indian person in this country.”

Azaria, a white male, voices several characters on the long-running Fox show, but now says he will no longer voice Apu. He recently opened up about the issue in Dax Shepard’s podcast, “Armchair Expert,” when he felt hurt and defensive after a documentary came out called The Problem with Apu.

At first, Azaria said he didn’t want to “knee-jerk respond to what could have been … 17 hipsters in a microbrewery in Brooklyn.” But he later realized he needed to educate himself a bit further, saying, “I talked to a lot of Indian people. I talked to a lot of people who knew a lot about racism in this country. I took seminars. I read.”

One conversation actually took place at his son’s school, where the actor spoke with a group of Indian students. A 17-year-old student approached Azaria in tears. “He’s never even seen ‘The Simpsons’ … but knows what Apu means,” Azaria says. “It’s practically a slur at this point. All he knows is this is how his people are thought of and represented to many people in this country.”

Influence from young Indian-American students

The student further asked Azaria to send a message along to his Hollywood colleagues: “Will you please tell the writers in Hollywood that what they do and what they come up with really matters in people’s lives, like it has consequences?”

“I was like ‘yes, my friend, I will tell them that,” Azaria says. He then turned to Shepard’s co-host Monica Padman, who is Indian American. “I said to him, and I’m going to say to you right now, I really do apologize. I know you weren’t asking for that, but it’s important. I apologize for my part in creating that and participating in that.”

Azaria’s solution

Azaria is just one of the many white voice actors who are stepping down from voicing a character of another race. Mike Henry stepped down from voicing Cleveland, a Black man, on Fox’s Family Guy. Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell also said they would stop voicing mixed-race characters on Netflix’s Big Mouth and Apple TV Plus’s Central Park.
The solution? Azaria concludes: “If it’s an Indian character or a Latinx character or a Black character, please let’s have that person voice the character.”

Full frontal nude, at 56, on Vogue CZ,” she writes. “I can’t wait to share the inside pages as well, this was one of the most fun and playful photos shoots I have done- possibly in my life. For you peeps who have a problem with the lack of coverup- you can peruse the pages fully dressed.”

Vogue CS also shared the photo on their official Instagram page, explaining that the issue the model is covering is “dedicated to time.” The outlet further explains, “It is neither anti-age nor we want to talk about aging. We do not perceive time as an enemy, but as the only true lifelong companion. We seek the beauty of maturation in every moment of human life. We celebrate flowers in a rage even when they fade.”

Porizkova recently addressed the concept of aging as well, additionally addressing critics who took issue with her exposing herself in her 50s. “In my 20s, I was celebrated for showing up in lingerie. I was getting a lot of money for it and everybody loved me,” Porizkova says back on The Tamron Hall Show. “In my 50s, I still think I look pretty good in lingerie, but the reaction is reviled, obviously not by everybody, but yeah, there’s a fair amount of backlash.”

She continues, “I think it’s that when you get older when there’s a certain sort of invisible boundary that happens in maybe your mid-40s where you, I guess you don’t look fertile anymore, it’s a menopausal thing.”

“And maybe it’s because you’re starting to look a little like people’s mom, that sexy is not allowed. You’re allowed to be beautiful, you’re allowed to be handsome, you’re allowed to be present, you’re allowed to be shocking or eye opening, but you are not allowed to be sexy.”

The model has been honest with her following, detailing a procedure she underwent called a plasma pen treatment. This helps keep the skin firmer and wrinkle-free. Aside from that, she’s been nothing but both body and aging positive for her whole fanbase to see, including critics!
