New "Indy 4" Cast Member: Jim Broadbent

You might not remember the name, but you'll definitely know the face.

Jim Broadbent is a very fine British actor who'll you'd probably remember from "Gangs of New York," "Moulin Rouge," or "Bridget Jones' Diary" -- in addition to about a hundred other flicks. The actor will be joining the "Indiana Jones 4" cast and crew in New Haven. It's there he'll get to play a helpful college professor.

When asked if this character could be the "new" Marcus Brody (the amusing sidekick previously played by the late Denholm Elliott), Broadbent "that would do for me" before offering up a friendly chuckle.

Other Brits in the cast include John Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Simon Pegg.

(Just kidding about the last one; wanted to see if you were paying attention.)

Thanks for that. I really was excited about Simon Pegg joining the cast. I don't even know why I believed it in the first place.

Yeah you got me Scott, I don't think that he would be a good fit for this movie though, so I'm happy that was just a joke.
