The Internet is abuzz with talks that the insanely affable and adorable Chris Pratt could be Hollywood's next Indiana Jones, and while we're in love with the actor, he shouldn't go trying on that wide-brimmed hat just yet. Here are 10 actors we think could give Chris a run for his money.

Who do you think should be the next Indiana Jones?

    First of all, what about another hot Chris -- of the Pine variety? Chris Pine proved he can make an iconic character his own with the revamped Star Trek, and he definitely has the physicality needed for the part.

  • Miles Teller

    Miles Teller received tons of critical acclaim for his role in the indie flick Whiplash, so his acting chops are clearly there. His spin in the upcoming Fantastic Four proves he's got action star written all over him.

  • Liam Hemsworth

    I mean, why not? Liam Hemsworth is smokin' hot. And if he could be involved with Miley Cyrus' level of crazy for years, he can tackle anything Indy wants to throw his way. Currently he's rumored to take the lead in Independence Day 2.

  • Josh Hutcherson

    And while we're on the subject of Hunger Games hotties, why not throw Josh Hutcherson's name into the ring? The actor may not be the first that comes to mind when you think of an Indiana Jones reincarnation, but he could nail that professor side of Indy, and if he can survive Hunger Games, he can outrun anything.

  • John Krasinski

    A dark horse for sure, but we'd love to see John Krasinski given a shot to play Indy. He's got the right build and it would be fun to see him do something other than rom-coms.

  • Benedict Cumberbatch

    Not that we entirely get it, but the ladies love Benedict Cumberbatch and he has the sort of old soul that would be a perfect complement to Indy. Scheduling could be a bit tough, though, as he has five movies currently in pre-production.

  • Kellan Lutz

    While Kellan Lutz may have taken a break from action flicks to do the independent film Experimenter, we're pretty sure the Twilight Saga alum could be lured back with the chance to play such an iconic movie figure.

  • Channing Tatum

    Shouldn't Channing Tatum be an automatic given for the Indiana Jones possibilities list? The man did survive Running Wild With Bear Grylls so we know he has the adventuresome spirit.

  • Ryan Gosling

    Why so serious all of the time, Ryan Gosling? We want to see this new dad get down and dirty in a big budget flick.

  • Bradley Cooper

    Bradley Cooper's name had been thrown around earlier as a potential candidate for Indiana Jones, but then the rumors went away. We'd like to put that idea back on the table, especially after his turn in American Sniper.
