Rumors have begun to surface that Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper could take over for Harrison Ford if "Indiana Jones" producers decide the franchise needs a fresh start.

Ford, 71, has been playing 'Indy' since 1981 with "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and a new face could be just what the series needs.

Ford told the Telegraph last year that he could still handle the role of Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones Jr., as he has done in five films (the last in 2008).

"We've seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it's perfectly appropriate and OK for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn't necessarily have to kick as much ass," he said.

So, there's the option of keeping Ford as Jones, going with Cooper, 39, or maybe even a third option of bringing back Shia LaBeouf, who starred in 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" as Mutt Williams to stay with the story line and bring back Jones' protégé.

So, what do you think?
