"Don't get clever, Boris, you don't know 'im!"―George McHale[src]
In 1957, Hoover helped his superiors, Antonin Dovchenko and Irina Spalko infiltrate Hangar 51. During Indiana Jones' escape, Hoover and Mac drove at Jones' oncoming Dodge M-37 in their staff car; Mac warned the Russian not to get clever. Jones didn't swerve and the cars collided headfirst.
He was seen later in Doom Town along with Franklin and Lincoln, and sat in the back seat of the staff car. After discovering that Doom Town was actually a nuclear test site, Hoover and his comrades tried to escape in the staff car and left Jones to die. however, it was too late. While Jones survived by taking shelter in a lead-lined refrigerator, Hoover was killed when the atomic blast caught up to their vehicle.
Behind the scenesEdit
Hoover was played uncredited by stuntman John Dixon in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Given that "Boris" was a name commonly associated in American culture for being Russian, it's more likely that "Boris" was just a quick nickname Mac thought up for him, than being his actual Russian name
According to the insignia on his shirt, "Hoover" was pretending to be a Sergeant First Class.
