Spielberg Embarrassed of "Indiana Jones 4," Wanted Harrison Ford for "Jurassic Park"

Spielberg Embarrassed of "Indiana Jones 4," Wanted Harrison Ford for "Jurassic Park"Submit Comment
For the 30th anniversary of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," the film was screened in LA where Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford made an appearance and answered some questions.

According to Spielberg, he originally wanted Tom Selleck to play Indiana Jones and it was "Empire Strikes Back" that made Harrison the frontrunner. Ford replied that Spielberg now only hires him for Indy films. To which the director replied: "You know who I offered 'Jurassic Park' to? This guy (pointing at Ford). Alan Grant, 'Jurassic Park,' right here."

Spielberg went on to explain that he was struggling and ended up taking on "Raiders" for the paycheck. "Before 'Raiders' I needed a job, because Id just made '1941' and no one would hire me, except George Lucas, my friend. [laughs] So, yeah, I needed the eggs, you know?

And when the topic switched to "Indiana Jones the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," Spielberg admitted that he was embarrassed of it. When one person cheered in the audience, the director joked: "I think that's the one we didn't alienate with the fourth."

Both Ford and Spielberg said that they are interested in doing a fifth "Indiana Jones" film. "We talk about it, yes. We're hopeful, someday. Were hopeful," said Spielberg. Ford added: "Maybe a fifth, but I aint going to Mars."

We're all embarrassed too Steven. Your not alone, but thanks for admitting it sucked. Now give me my $7.50 back you bastard!

Well maybe if it didnt have a Sci-Fi like ending maybe it wouldnt be as bad.

Also I hated Cate Blanchett in that movie i felt her character was annoying. Anybody else agree?

@taco...lol

Selleck would have been good.

Ford as Doctor Grant, man he would have been a miserable bastard.

The Jurassic Park thing isn't really big news and has been on IMDb for ages. Ford also declined the role of Oskar Schindler.

So that's everybody right? Nobody who worked on Indiana Jones 4 actually liked it.

So then why the hell did that they make it?

I'm not even gonna touch on Indy 4. But I'll probably be one of the few who's glad he wasn't in Jurassic Park. I love Harrison to death but at the same time with him being Indy and then this he woulda been labled Spielberg's go to boy. Of course he woulda been the only saving factor in JP3.

@Damon: Lucas really pushed for it (after the second Star Wars trilogy, he knew people are gonna see it no matter the quality) and Spielberg just couldn't say no since he and Lucas are buddies...and of course the money.

YES! to what RAIDER said i think shs was modeled after a real self proclaimed psychic that was on a Fox gameshow,she was annoying too. That only person clapping was probably Ally Mcbeels' bones getting up to leave

Well, the 4th Indiana Jones wasn't the best, and the ending with the aliens was a bad idea, but overall I found it quite entertaining personally. There are more embarrassing movies out there

Sam Neil was a perfect Alan Grant, but Ford would have been an interesting choice for sure. Oh yeah, and Ill never say it enough : f*ck you Spielberg and Lucas for f*cking Indiana Jones 4, you rapped my memories in the butt for 2 hours.
