One of the most memorable characters of the classic Indiana Jones movies, besides Indiana Jones himself, is Short Round. He's played by Jonathan Ke Quan in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but thousands of other kids auditioned for the role, including Nobu Adilman, who made a short documentary called “Short Round-Up” in which he tracks down some of the other aspiring actors who also auditioned for the role. (Originally aired Jan 20, 2020).
