BBC: Harrison Ford, 78, has signed up for a fifth — and final — gig as Indiana Jones. I recently rewatched all four and must say Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) — aside from "Anything Goes" — is complete garbage and beyond dark. The third one, with Sean Connery (by the way, he was just 59 when it came out, at least 20 years younger than Ford will be when #5 drops!), was quite entertaining, and the last one was pretty good, too.
