Renner's comments on Bourne.

No, sorry, but no. Renner doesn't mean anything to me. I think he's not sexy enough. He's not a bad actor, though.
They had to add Weisz and Norton to make "Legacy" more interesting. In the first three movies, Matt was the only star and that was enough.
What a way to ruin a perfect franchise!! {{{>___<}}}

Re: Renner's comments on Bourne.

Renner's a good "outside" actor, but what made Bourne special was that, for all the action, the real story was going on inside the character. Matt is the king of interior acting. That, imho, is the reason the Bourne series worked: action AND a character we cared about whose inner turmoil made the action meaningful as a mirror of his own distress. Unless Legacy has those elements, it's just another action flick--probably make a bunch of money but not as much as the makers hope. We'll see.
