I have just rewatched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), and this picture of young(er) Mutt with young Harold Oxley got me wondering:
The thing is, young Harold looks to me very much like Neil Flynn, the actor playing agent Smith (not the Matrix one, but the one interrogating Indy after the infamous escape from the nuclear bomb testing):
Also, he doesn't look much like John Hurt, i.e., the guy playing (current day) Harold Oxley:
It doesn't look much like young John Hurt either:
I know that makeup can make wonders, but it's not uncommon (actually, it's quite reasonable) for such parts to be done by different actors.
So, is young Harold Oxley
- just John Hurt under a (heavy) make up, or
- some old John Hurt's picture digitally incorporated into the above picture, or
- is it actually Neil Flynn, or
- is it someone else?
I could find no info on this on the internet.
