With Matt Damon turning down another role as Jason Bourne the rumor mill is popping up another name, that of Transformers star Shia LaBeouf.
LaBeouf would take over the role as the movie enters a 4th telling of Tony Gilroy’s Bourne character.
There is also reported to be a list of other high-profile actors who could take on the role, however LaBeouf’s experience with action and high intensity films is said to have made him a top choice for the role.
Does anyone else find LaBeouf an odd choice for all these high action, high impact movies? With Indiana Jones, Transformers, even Distrubia, LaBeouf has become a new type of hero, an unassuming hero who rises to the occasion despite his average build. It will be interesting to see if he can play Jason Bourne with a bit more bad ass and a little less of himself.
