* YouLookFamiliar: ''Every'' foe Indy fights that is larger than usual, except for Dovchenko in ''Skull'', was played by the late British wrestler and stuntman Pat Roach. That makes the "giant sherpa" and the second German mechanic in ''Raiders'', the Thuggee overseer in ''Doom'' and a German WorldWarOne pilot in a deleted scene of ''Crusade''. You may know him also as General Kael, TheDragon from another Lucasfilm production, ''Film/{{Willow}}.''

* HideYourPregnancy: CateBlanchett was actually three months pregnant by the time she finished filming [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Kingdom of the Crystal Skull]] which make her fencing on moving vehicle stunts even more impressive. Mostly averted as she clearly doesn't look pregnant at any point during the movie.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Donovan is played by Creator/JulianGlover, who also played Kristatos in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' and General Veers from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
** The Janitor as G-man Smith.
** Indy's guide when the film starts is Creator/AlfredMolina of ''Film/SpiderMan2'' fame.
*** [[HilariousInHindsight His first movie role too]].
** UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler in ''The Last Crusade'' is perpetual "that guy" Creator/MichaelSheard, who was also Admiral Ozzel in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Mr Bronson in ''GrangeHill'', and various roles in ''Series/DoctorWho''.
** Apparently [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Galadriel]] embraced Communism, cut her hair, and is now a brunette. Bit of a shift for CateBlanchett.
** [[Film/{{Gandhi}} Khan and Nehru]] are Mola Ram and Chattar Lal, Prime Minister of Pankot, respectively.
** Short Round is [[TheSmartGuy Data]]. No, not that [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data]], the one in ''Film/TheGoonies''.

*** Also [[spoiler: [[Series/{{DoctorWho}} the War Doctor]]]]
** [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Gimli]] is Sallah.
** [[Series/{{Scrubs}} The Janitor]] thinks Indy is spying for the Russians.
** Henry Sr. and Marcus Brody were a couple of [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075147/ Merry Men]].
** Toht [[Series/{{Blackadder}} is a sodomy crazed bishop]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Does that monkey in ''Raiders'' sound like [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Abu]] to you? FrankWelker actually got the role in ''Aladdin'' on recommendation from Steven Spielberg, who recalled the excellent vocal performance he gave in ''Raiders''.

** The first drafts of the third movie had Indy getting in a haunted castle in Scotland. The castle (moved to Austria), the revolving door and even Indy speaking with a poor Scottish accent made it into the final film, but Spielberg didn't want to do another haunted house after ''{{Poltergeist}}''. The haunted castle finally showed up in a [[TheYoungIndianaJonesChronicles Young Indy]] TV episode, ''Transylvania, January 1918''.
