THE REEL DEAL: Shia In The New Bourne Movie? Possibly?

Good ole Shia Labeouf has just been added to the long list of actors grabbing at the leading role for the new Bourne spin-off series. Also on this list are some big names like Jake Gyllenhaal and… wait… I dont think any of the other names are big.

My opinion?? Too soft. Shia’s charm is in his witty comments and teenage-ish naevity (this poor guy is never gonna look a day older than 19). He may have been able to be mildly serious in the movie Eagle Eye (which was predictable but not too bad), but I really doubt he could go up to the cold and numb personality that Bourne movies utilize.

Who do I want to play Bourne? (besides Matt Damon?) I’m gonna have to go with Joseph Gordon-Levitte. You know, that goofie long-haired kid on Third Rock from the Sun. You would probably ask how in the world he’s not too soft to play the role, and a while ago I would have agreed with you. Until I saw Inception. Man! He really did shine in that movie. I gotta say, I think he could pull this role off and do an amazing job at that.

We’ll just have to see how it goes.

  1. Totally agree, Shia=Fail, and Joseph might be able to pull it off. I just wish Matt would just do it anyways, because I cant see any borne movies without him doing very well.

  2. I agree, Matt Damon and the Bourne movies go together. Saw Inception but can’t place the actor you mentioned. Shia Labeouf is definitely not up to par for Bourne, in my opinion.
