I’m only 60, younger than most of these guys. I work out nearly every day. Under certain bad lighting conditions I have ridges. I watched the last one thinking, “Nope. No way. Eh-eh.” Can’t Hollywood find an American male who is younger and macho enough to believably (for a given value of believability) pull off these stunts?

One of the things that hurt Indiana Jones, in his last movie, was Indiana, a 60 year old adventurer-college professor, being able to take on a Russian super-soldier, a foot taller and at least 50 lbs heavier and having gotten the best combat training the Russian military had to offer. The idea was laughable at best.

I should also add the more dangerous stunts Harrison Ford performed in the movie were so obviously made safe for him that it ruined the movie.
