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

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.

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