With many previous "Indiana Jones" characters rumored to be returning, we wonder how Indy’s new best bud and his old one (John Rhys-Davies‘ Sallah) will get on together. Other familar faces speculated to pop up include Sean Connery as Indy’s dad and Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood. Most recently it was announced that Cate Blanchett was also joining the cast.
