Information on the rapper

Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones Jr. is the title character and protagonist of the Indiana Jones franchise. George Lucas created the character in homage to the action heroes of 1930s film serials. The character first appeared in the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark, to be followed by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in 1984, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles from 1992 to 1996, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008, with a fifth film set for release in 2022. The character is also featured in novels, comics, video games, and other media. Jones is also featured in several Disney theme park attractions.

In his role as a college professor of archaeology, Jones is scholarly and learned in a tweed suit, lecturing on ancient civilizations. At the opportunity to recover important artifacts, Dr. Jones transforms into "Indiana," a "non-superhero superhero" image he has concocted for himself. According to Spielberg biographer Douglas Brode, Indiana created his heroic figure so as to escape the dullness of teaching at a school. Both of Indiana's personas reject one another in philosophy, creating a duality. Harrison Ford said the fun of playing the character was that Indiana is both a romantic and a cynic, while scholars have analyzed Indiana as having traits of a lone wolf; a man on a quest; a noble treasure hunter; a hardboiled detective; a human superhero; and an American patriot.

Jones is characterized by his iconic accoutrements (bullwhip, fedora, satchel, and leather jacket), wry, witty and sarcastic sense of humor, deep knowledge of ancient civilizations and languages, and fear of snakes. He is famously portrayed by Harrison Ford in the movies.  

Since his first appearance in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has become one of cinema's most famous characters. In 2003, the American Film Institute ranked him the second greatest film hero of all time. He was also named the Greatest Movie Character by Empire magazine. Entertainment Weekly ranked Indiana 2nd on their list of The All-Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture. Premiere magazine also placed Indiana at number 7 on their list of The 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.

Trivia

  • Jones was hinted at by an appearance of his trademark fedora hat. This was accompanied by the sound of a whip cracking, which refers to Jones' iconic weapon.
  • He was referenced by Darth Vader in Hitler vs Vader 2 during the line "Ask Indiana Jones who the fuck I am!"
  • Jones' inclusion means that Harrison Ford will be the third actor to be represented by multiple characters in ERB, due to Ford also portraying Han Solo, after Mark Hamill (The Joker and Luke Skywalker) and Keanu Reeves (Ted "Theodore" Logan and John Wick)
    • As Jones will presumably be a rapper, Harrison Ford will be the first actor to have one character as a rapper, and one as a cameo.
