Bourne Ultimatum casting
  • Variety reports that David Strathairn has been cast in Bourne Ultimatum.

    David Strathairn has booked roles in a pair of projects. Thesp will lense a lead role in Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures "The Spiderwick Chronicles" then will segue to the third installment of Universal Pictures "Bourne Identity" franchise.

    The Paul Greengrass-directed "Bourne Ultimatum" will again star Matt Damon as Jason Bourne who is on the run, hoping to solve the mystery of his past. Strathairn will play the leader of a secret operation which is hunting Damon's character.

  • The website for Margaret at Fox Searchlight now lists the film's release date as TBD 2007 instead of Fall 2006.

    US Weekly article

    Us Weekly has a full two page article on Matt. I have it, but no scanner. The best I could do would be to transpose the article to a word document (which I'll do if need be). Anyone else have it and a scanner?
    The article is chalk full of inaccuracies though. Not great.

    I forgot to sign my last post about the US Weekly article. Let me know if you need it transposed Felicity.

    Re: Whoops!

    Thanks Susan. Sammie should have the scans on her site in a couple of days if nobody else can scan them before.

    Could you summarise the article, or post anything new (Bourne Ultimatum dates or plans?) That would be great.

    Re: Whoops!

    No problem. The article is called "5 thing you don't know about Matt Damon"
    1. He grew up in a commune (nothing new to us)
    2. He used to break-dance in Harvard Square (correct me if I'm wrong, but this is a fallacy)
    3. He was snubbed a lot (in reference to rolls lost to Edward Norton and Joaquin Phoenix)
    4. He's very generous (giving money to his family and Africa)
    5. He wants more kids (an "insider's" claim that he wants at least one more baby. They also make reference to Lucy as an interior designer - which I thought was false)

    That's it in a nutshell. Nothing too exciting and no real new news. --Susan

    Re: Whoops!

    Thanks Susan - and you're right, half of the things you don't know (which are actually really well known) are oft-repeated fallacies.

    The breakdancing thing was made up by Casey as a joke; he said only last week that he would love a son one day; and Lucy is not, and never has been an interior designer.

    It's like thanks for the story in Us, but...

    Re: Whoops!

    I must have missed him saying that he would love a son. What was that in?

    I just noticed that I spelled "roles" as "rolls". I should proof read. I'm just not going to check for other mistakes. Better left unseen. = )

    Re: Whoops!

    During a red carpet interview for Feast in Las Vegas, the interviewer talked to Matt and Ben about having girls.

    Can't completely remember the context, but Matt said "I hope to have a little boy too one day."

    Re: Whoops!

    The context was that the reporter, idiot that he was, asked something along the lines of "How is raising a girl different than a boy?" Matt, clearly miffed about the reporter taking up his and Ben's time, gave him a quick, slightly snarky answer about how he wouldn't know the difference, seeing as how he doesn't have a son, and the comment about wanting one came out of that.
