Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. is a fictional professor of archaeology,               
adventurer, and the main protagonist of the 1981 adventure film Raiders of the       
Lost Ark, its prequel (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), and sequels (Indiana   
Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal           
Skull). Jones is notable for his trademark bullwhip, fedora, leather jacket, and     
fear of snakes.                                                                       
The character is most famously played by Harrison Ford; however, he has also         
been portrayed by River Phoenix (as the young Indy in Indiana Jones and the Last     
Crusade), and in the television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles by         
Corey Carrier, Sean Patrick Flanery, and George Hall. Doug Lee has supplied Indy's   
voice to two LucasArts video games, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and       
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, while David Esch supplied Indy's voice       
to Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.                                             
In addition to his film and television appearances, the character has been           
featured in novels, comics, video games, and other media. The fourth theatrical       
film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is currently in post       
production and scheduled for international simultaneous release on Thursday, May
