THEN: Harrison Ford as Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones
When franchise director Steven Spielberg suggested casting Ford as the snake-fearing hero, "Indy" co-creator and producer George Lucas resisted as he had already cast the actor in "American Graffiti" and "Star Wars."
Instead, actor Tom Selleck was cast as Jones, until the "Magnum P.I." star was forced to drop out of the project due to a schedule conflict. Ford was then cast in what would become his most iconic role.—Xfinity Entertainment Staff (Photo: Paramount Pictures, LucasFilm)
