Yes, Harrison Ford -- like Beyoncé -- is irreplaceable. Director Steven Spielberg just talked to Screen Daily about a fifth Indiana Jones film and he emphasized that, despite some rumors, he has no plans to cast a new Indy. He also made it clear that, to him, no one else should EVER play Indy.

(Except maybe River Phoenix as young Indy in Spielberg's own "The Last Crusade." Not sure about Sean Patrick Flanery and company in "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles." You may want to take this personally, guys.)

As Spielberg told Screen, "I don't think anyone could replace Harrison as Indy, I don't think that's ever going to happen. It's certainly not my intention to ever have another actor step into his shoes in the way there have been many actors that have played Spider-Man or Batman. There is only going to be one actor playing Indiana Jones and that's Harrison Ford."

BOOM.

The mic has been dropped and all hopefuls can scurry away -- and maybe join the lineup for potential young Han Solos.

Harrison Ford has said for a while that he would return for "Indiana Jones 5," if a script comes along, so there's no need to recast. But it's good to hear Spielberg give his thoughts on the action hero's distant future; 'cause you know someone out there will want to reboot Indy someday, and here's The Boss saying all non-Ford versions are not legit.
