Pretty Much Every Actor in Hollywood Wants to be the Next Bourne

4 Comments

Or to be more specific, every actor wants to be the one fronting the new “Bourne” movie, “The Bourne Legacy” by writer/director Tony Gilroy. The film will be set in the world moviegoers are familiar with via the Matt Damon “Bourne” movies, but will feature a new actor in a new role.

Deadline says Gilroy has either met with these actors, or that the names are “in the mix”:

Joel Edgerton, Josh Hartnett, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Paul Dano, Michael Pitt, Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Fassbender, Luke Evans, Alex Pettyfer, Taylor Kitsch, Benjamin Walker

Wow, that’s a lot of names. Most of them are “it” names, like Hedlund, who for a while there was being sought for just about every movie, though that might have died down with the less-than-spectacular performance of “Tron: Legacy”.

I would personally love to see Fassbender do a badass contemporary role.

    Fassbender in a badass contemporary role would rock! My choices of that list would be in this order:
    1. Jake Gyllenhal
    2. Josh Hartnet
    3. Michael Fassbender
    4. Garrett Hedlund
    5. Taylor Kitsch

    If they don’t cast Damon, that’s just a bad decision. Damon rules!!! DiCaprio sucks.
