Step Aside, Matt Damon! Shia LaBeouf's Ready To Be Bourne!

| Filed under: Matt DamonFilm FlickersShia LaBeouf


The Bourne franchise is getting a new badass.

Universal Studios reportedly is looking to replace Matt Damon as Jason Bourne with someone a bit younger.

Do we think that is a smart move? No, not really. Especially since we're sure that Matt is more than game to do at least two more films.

Do we like some of the choices they've got lined up for the role regardless of the fact that they are replacing Matt? Yeah, we really, really do!

The studio's already compiled a bunch of potential candidates together, all actors in their late 20s to early 30s. Topping that list is Shia LaBeouf, a solid choice considering his background in action flicks and his love of franchises.

Some other hotties in the running? Let's see, we've got Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch and Kellan Lutz.

All great choices. Personally, we'd like to see Matt come back and do one more flick, maybe training one of these youngin's to take his place. Then, one of these studs can take over. Our, um, gut is leaning towards Garrett!

What about U? Who do U think should step into the identity of Bourne?

    That douche ruins one film franchise after another.

    Shia looks like a nerdy kid, not a bad ass!!

  3. 3

    I thinks he is hot. Much hotter than those boring pin up guys that are all muscle.

  4. 4

    shia's too nerdy. his style of acting is too hyper, like tom cruise. he always seems to be in a stuttering state of panic. that's not matt damon's bourne, who's a cool and emotionless fighting machine.

    for once you are right perez. garrett would be the perfect followup if they replace damon even tho they shouldnt do it. garrett encompases bournes american look, personality, and he owns in action movies and is actually a great actor. shias jus gonna look like a fucking asshole in this movie compared to damon and i dont find him the least bit attractive. but garrett is definitely the hottest out of all them hands down ;D

    i do think he would be great if they could just deal with 'the hair' i love the bourne identity series… he would be perfect ..

    Shia is too skinny and nerdy. Matt Damon IS Jason Bourne. Bad idea guys. I love the Bourne movies and can't see anyone else playing that role.

  8. 8

    No way. Last time I checked Bourne was not a scrawny fuck suffering from little-big man syndrome. Shia does not have the acting chops to fill that role. No one does… Damon IS Bourne. Leave Bourne alone and tell another story. There are plenty of great stories/characters out there waiting for treatment.

    I will never forget this asshole dumping hot coffee on a photographer. Abusive jerk.

    SHIA is one of thee very best actors. He will be excellent in Bourne! On "top" of that, he's a royal hotty!

    I just wanted to say to all those who are commenting about his physique 'skinny nerdy' I saw some recent pics of this guy online and he's prolly put on a solid 15 pounds of mass. He's actually more built than Damon, (not that he ever was) Damon is a great action actor no doubt.. Im just saying, check out some recent photos of labeouf. They both have pretty large acting chops.

    Re: peoplearesodumb – Check out recent photos of labeouf.. Hes pretty jaked up now. More than Damon to be honest. Guts put on some of what 15 lbs.

  13. 13

    Oh god no! Enough with this guy, it's kind of like Blake Lively - what's the appeal?? How is he landing these roles? I don't really like any of the replacements on that list though.. Jake is great, but this doesn't seem like a very good fit. Tobey is also not right, Taylor is a terrible choice, and I haven't seen those other two in anything.

  14. 14

    HOT, HOT, HOT!! i love looking at Shia, who is definitely the farthest thing from a nerd, but whatever jealous peens. anyway, although he has done action flicks and probably could handle this role, damon's already "made" it, you know? i don't see any fan liking the new bourne, no matter who he is, cuz he's just not gonna be Damon. i don't know why they won't keep Matt. i think it would be hard for Shia to do this role when people will probably expect him to just be a younger Damon. but whatevs, he does it or not, i still love me some Shia Labeouf!! amd yes, he's looking more built these days… nude scenes in a movie coming up maybe?? lol

  15. 15

    Terrible move. Shia LaBeouf will ruin the franchise. The people who should be up for the role should be Tom Hardy, Chris Evans, or Columbus Short

  16. 16

    TAYLOR! He is so sexy! Now that Friday Night Lights is over he needs something to do! I've never seen any of the bourne movies, but i'd go see it if he was cast!

  17. 17

    LaBeouf always knows he's on camera … can't fucking stand him

  18. 18

    The guy who threw coffee at the paps then ran away like a little girl is going to play a tough guy? It will never work.

  19. 19

    Garrett Hedlund would be great, if he would even want the role. He has played many different roles really well, and he is an excellent actor. He comes across as interesting and genuine, and not at all caught up in himself.

  20. 20

    Matt Damon…or no one else.
