Let’s face it: Harrison Ford can only play Indiana Jones for so much longer. Who’s waiting in the wings to succeed him and other Hollywood leading men? The Fug Girls offer up their thoughts, writing for New York:

  • Chris Pine = Harrison Ford: The new Jack Ryan has “literally been cast in a role formerly occupied by Ford. How much more proof do you need?”
  • Sam Worthington = Russell Crowe: But “Crowe's a much better actor, even if none of his movies changed the face of cinema, blah blah Avatar blah.”

  • Taylor Lautner = Orlando Bloom: “Do you hear that screaming from the tweens gathered outside Taylor's hotel room? Five years ago, those girls were screaming for Orlando Bloom.”
  • Robert Pattinson = Christian Bale: “If any young actor seems Method enough to lose 60 pounds for a role, it's Pattinson.”
  • Zac Efron = John Travolta: They both got started in musicals, though “it’s hard—but really, really amusing—to picture Efron in Face/Off or Pulp Fiction.”
