Indy IV — John Hurt’s identity revealed?


For months, there has been speculation that John Hurt may be playing Abner Ravenwood, the father of Indy’s erstwhile girlfriend Marion Ravenwood, in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which comes to theatres next week Thursday. The filmmakers, on the other hand, have been keeping his character’s identity secret. But the cat may have been let out of the bag now — and with the filmmakers’ approval. So, dear reader, if you do not want to know the answer to this question just yet, do not — I repeat, do not — check out the bonus features on the new “special edition” of Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) that came out today. Or at least not the ‘Indiana Jones: An Appreciation’ featurette.

    …and don’t hover your mouse over the picture of Hurt, above, either :p

  • Yikes, sorry, I’d forgotten all about that. I’ve fixed that now.

  • Liek I said to you last night, how is this a big secret? Who cares? This is nowhere near the same as when the entertainment media were blabbing about T2 and how Arnold was playing “a good guy” in the film when the film was obviously banking on us believing he was the same hell-bent for death terminator model as before.
