Speaking with the Fresno Bee, Kattan said: "The part about the heroic film lead is not true. I did want to be Indiana Jones when I was young. But now I know that's not the kind of roles I am going to be offered." So while he might not be looking to follow in the footsteps of Harrison Ford, he is itching for humor/drama combos, and offers Lost in Translation as an example.
Kattan in dramatic comedies... It's an intriguing notion, and one that would be great if he can pull it off. There's nothing quite like the casting choices that sound shocking and terrible, only to be moments of genius when you see them on the screen. If he can pull a more serious career out of his Mango-filled past, that'd be a triumph. Although it would be much more wild if he was cast, and kicked arse in, an action gig like Indy.
Do you think he'll ever get the opportunity to take on dramatic comedy, and how do you think he'll fare if he does?
In the meantime, you can check out a trailer for the miniseries right here....
