'Indiana Jones 5' star Boyd Holbrook calls Harrison Ford 'the best type of crazy'
'Indiana Jones 5' or 'Indy 5' as it's better known may be a good few months away, but that hasn't stopped Boyd Holbrook from lavishing praise for Harrison Ford. 'The Sandman's baddie will share screenspace with Ford in the much-awaited installment calling the veteran the 'best type of crazy'.
In an interview with Men's Health, Holbrook, who played Corinthian in the recent Netflix fantasy blockbuster said, "Harrison is the best type of crazy you can get," Holbrook said. "And I really grew up with Indiana Jones. I wasn't so big on other franchises and stuff like that, but to do that, it really just reignited why I want to do this. Because, you know, you live on the road. It's been about 10 months on the road right now, being a traveling circus with your family. It was just refreshing to want to go through all that. To do something and to make something that's burned into eternity. To be part of Indiana Jones—It's pretty great."
Holbrook also shared his thoughts on James Mangold, the man behind the success of 'Ford v Ferrari'. "You know, just look at his work: 'Ford v Ferrari,' it's gonna be fast, it's gonna be badass, and it's gonna have heart. All of his films have this emotional beat in them, but we've got this grand scale of Indiana Jones." While much of the plot details are played close to the vest, the film does promise a solid ensemble cast. Created by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman. 'Indiana Jones 5' also stars Antonio Banderas, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, Thomas Kretschmann, and Mads Mikkelsen.
The film is the fifth installment in the anthology, which includes 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' (2008), 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' (1989), 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' (1984), and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' (1981).
Holbrook's 'The Sandman' is currently streaming on Netflix. 'Indy 5' is slated to release on June 30, 2023.
