Indiana Jones and the Da Vinci Code?

Ok, I know I'm WAY behind the times, but I'm finally reading (currently halfway through, so no spoilers please!) the DaVinci Code. (and, no, I haven't seen the film yet) Have any of you read it? I'm reading a lovely illustrated edition borrowed from my Uncle. It has photos of all the relevent art works etc, which is a huge boon cos I don't have to get up every five minutes and google it to know what they're talking about! :~)

Anyway, I had heard via Harrison Ford when he was doing interviews for 'Firewall' that the main character was supposed to look like him, and yes he is mentioned by name. Also, the character's voice was described like Harrison's - 'smooth chocolate' *yes I'm drooling* - and several times there have been references to his 'lopsided grin'!

And the more I get into the story, the more it reads like an Indiana Jones fanfic! Seriously! The character of Langdon is dead-set Dr (Indiana) Jones! (minus the hat ;~P)

Anyone else feel that?

I'm thoroughly enjoying it by the way. ;~)

not that I find Tom Hanks a bad actor but, I'm tired to see him as the lead actor in all those movies that are supossed to be a hit. In my humble opinion, please do not be offended or anything, I find Tom Hanks quite 'bland' and lacks that gift that only a few actors have and it's called charisma. They can be on screen and without say a word but they would stole the scene with their own great presence and, Tom Hanks doesn't have it. It's a pity that they do not chose Harrison for that role because he really does have it.
