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, including the Indiana Jones Adventure, Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril, Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Crystal Skull, and Epic Stunt Spectacular! attractions. 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.
- 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!"
- He will be the second character whose canonical actor (Harrison Ford) was previously represented by another character in a separate ERB, after Luke Skywalker.
- 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.
