James Van Der Beek

Screw Bradley Cooper ...

I SHOULD BE THE NEXT INDIANA JONES!

EXCLUSIVE

032714_james_van_der_beek_launchJames Van Der Beek thinks it would be sacrilegious if a new actor donned Harrison Ford's iconic fedora in a new Indiana Jones movie ... unless that actor was him.

Our photogs caught up with the "Friends With Better Lives" star in New York City yesterday ... where we asked him about the huge rumor that Bradley Cooper might be the next Indy.

Van Der Beek was dead set against the idea of anyone new taking the role, but when we asked if he would want to do it ... he hilariously deadpanned, "Absolutely. F*** Harrison Ford."

Dawson Leery and the Temple of Pacey?

Awesome     

Bradley Cooper just doesn't seem to have what it takes to fill Harrison Fords shoes.

If they ever replace Harrison Ford, Matthew Davis would be PERFECT as the new Indiana Jones. I've thought so since the moment he stepped onto The Vampire Diaries.

If Ford wants to do another Indy movie, make it. No other actor should play Indy. Ever. Remakes and reboots with someone taking over for a legend rarely works. If they must make an Indy type movie, call it something else.

This guy is the biggest d-bag. How he got on a $hitcom (the latest and the one on which he played his arrogant self) is beyond me. Elephant man face, you are not Bradley Cooper status. You are Z-list.

I knew a woman who won some radio contest around 2001 that let her meet Van Der Geek and spend time with him. Apparently, he wouldn't even sign an autograph for her and treated her as some pathetic hanger-on. WTF? No gratitude for fans?
