matt damon turned down avatar role

We could understand if he had turned down Ocean's Thirteen, or Green Zone…but Avatar? Really?

According to reports, Matt Damon was in talks with James Cameron to star in Avatar, but he turned the role down.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I talked to Cameron and I read the script and I knew the movie was gonna be a big hit. I really wanted to do Avatar and work with Jim Cameron and watch him direct and learn a lot."

"We were finishing The Bourne Ultimatum, and I couldn't leave. It was a scheduling issue."

Too bad, Matt, but at least it worked out for Sam Worthington, who ended up taking the role. If things had gone differently, Sam could still be struggling for bit parts on JAG. Ha!

Did U like Sam Worthington in Avatar? Do U think Matt Damon would have been better?

Looks like pirates have set their sights on Pandora!

James Cameron's Avatar has been named 2010's most popular illegal download, with over 16 million BitTorrent downloads alone!

Avatar has received 51 percent more BitTorrent downloads than last year's #1 illegal download, Star Trek.

Other films on the unfortunate Top 10 List include Kick-Ass, Inception, Shutter Island, Iron Man 2, Clash of the Titans, Green Zone, Sherlock Holmes, The Hurt Locker, and Salt.

Don't worry too much, James! We're sure plenty of folks will still pick up Avatar on Blu-Ray & DVD to stuff those stockings!

Now, get going on that Avatar 2 script, bb!
