The suit, along with three others, was assigned to follow Mutt Williams so as to capture Indiana Jones. He and one of the other agents boarded the train Jones intended to leave on, but had to get off after Williams persuaded Jones to go with him to Arnie's Diner. There the pair tried to apprehend the two Americans, but were thwarted when a fight broke out as a result of Mutt sucker punching a college student.
The agents gave chase in their cars and the suit pulled Jones into his car, but the archaeologist got out. Later they drove through a Red Scare rally, and the agent driving the car was blinded by a banner that said "Better Dead Than Red," and crashed into a statue of Marcus Brody.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Russian Suit 1 was played by actor and musician Dimitri Diatchenko in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. As an American actor of Ukranian origin, Diatchenko's Russian accent allowed him to get the role.
To prepare for the role, Diatchenko bulked up to 250 pounds to look more menacing. Although he was cast for a minor part for a ten day shoot, when Diatchenko was accidentally struck on the chin by Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones' portrayer, during the filming of the chase at Marshall College, director Steven Spielberg liked his humorous looking reaction so much that the actor's work was expanded to three months.
