FILM: Cate Blanchett Joins Indy 4

The oscar-nominated actress will adventure with Harrison Ford in Lucasfilm's next epic.

The extremely talented Cate Blanchett has been cast in Indiana Jones 4. Blanchett isn't a stranger to franchise films, appearing in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and has worked in a handful of recent successes such as Babel, Notes on a Scandal, and The Aviator. She also acts in the upcoming Bob Dylan bio pic I'm Not There along with Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Adrien Brody, Julianne Moore, and others. Blanchett will most likely play the powerful love interest in Indy 4.

I appreciate this casting choice. While Blanchett certainly wasn't my first choice for the role, I think she will be great in the part. She has a sense of power that is absent with most actresses in Hollywood and she really transforms into every character she takes on. Cate Blanchett may not be playing Galadriel or Katherine Hepburn but you can be certain she'll will find a way to twist the role in her favour.

What do you guys think about this casting choice? Does Cate Blanchett have what it takes to beat Alison Doody, Kate Capshaw, Karen Allen, and all the other love interests from previous Indiana Jones adventures?

One question about Christian Bale playing the title role in I'm Not There, the upcoming Bob Dylan biography. If Bale lost 67 pounds to play the lead role in The Machinist, will he shrink 6 inches to match the height of the miniature but magical Bob Dylan?

Ha, there's an idea. Maybe they'll put all the other actors on platforms so they all tower over the six-foot Bale. In all seriousness though, there are ways to shoot around a tall actor in a short role, this shouldn't be much of a problem.

Thanks for the comment,
