Fans want Ke Huy Quan to carry Harrison Ford’s legacy as Indiana Jones forward
It seems that instead of another mainstream Hollywood celebrity, fans have voiced their opinion to see the Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan carry Ford’s legacy forward. Considering that the actor’s career started alongside working with Ford in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, it’s understandable why fans would want Quan as the next adventurous archeologist after Ford.
That’s a better and more engaging storyline to get people to watch than Chris Pratt.

I’m so happy for him. He’s a great guy. He’s a wonderful actor. He was when he was a little kid, and he still is. I’m glad. I’m very happy for him. He is terrific in his movie. And I’m so glad to see him…and what he has become. I’m so happy for him. He’s such a happy guy, too.”
