Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones, Jr. is a title character and the protagonist of the Indiana Jones franchise. George Lucas and Steven Spielberg created the character in homage to the action heroes of 1930s film serials. Jones is played by Harrison Ford in the films as an adult 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. Particularly notable facets of the character include his iconic bullwhip, fedora, and leather jacket, sense of humor, deep knowledge of many ancient civilizations and languages, and fear of snakes.
