Hollywood’s young dudes that didn’t end up being Spider-Man or Captain America are clamoring to play the not-Jason Bourne main character in The Bourne Legacy. A few names have been tossed around like Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Shia LaBeouf, Taylor Kitsch, and Garrett Hedlund previously and now there’s more to add.
Deadline reports that Kitsch, Hedlund, Dominic Cooper, and Joel Edgerton have all been invited to test for the role. Shia LaBeouf is still up for the part but has not been asked to test. There’s enough footage of him running around all sweaty out there. There’s always a chance that the actor who wins the role will not be one that attends the camera tests, which isn’t very cool at all. We’ve all been asked nicely to be conservative with tape stock since the earthquake in Japan. Burning tape on Garrett Hedlund shows no respect to the rest of us.
