"Don't get clever, Boris, you don't know 'im!"
George McHale[src]

Disguised as American serviceman "Hoover", a Russian soldier accompanied his superiors, Colonels Colonel Dovchenko and Spalko, to infiltrate Nevada's Hangar 51 in 1957. 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. Hoover was killed when the atomic blast caught up to their vehicle.

Behind the scenesEdit

Given that "Boris" was a name commonly associated in American culture for being Russian, it is more likely that "Boris" was just a quick nickname Mac thought up for him, than being his actual Russian name.

The role of "Hoover" was played in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull by uncredited stuntman John Dixon.

According to the insignia on his shirt, "Hoover" was pretending to be a Sergeant First Class.
