Jones is most famously portrayed by Harrison Ford and has also been portrayed by River Phoenix (as the young Jones in The Last Crusade) and in the television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles by Corey Carrier, Sean Patrick Flanery, and George Hall. Doug Lee has supplied the voice of Jones for two LucasArts video games, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, David Esch supplied his voice for Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb, and John Armstrong for Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings.[10]

The character is distinguished by his appearance (bullwhip, fedora, satchel[11][12] and leather jacket), sense of humor, deep knowledge of many ancient civilizations and languages, and fear of snakes.

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.[13] He was also named the 1st Greatest Movie Character by Empire magazine.[14] Entertainment Weekly ranked Indy 2nd on their list of The All-Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture.[15] Premiere magazine also placed Indy at number 7 on their list of The 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time
