Garrett Hedlund, Dominic Cooper and Joel Edgerton screen testing for Bourne Legacy
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
The search continues for the young actor who will be the next agent in Operation Treadstone and it looks like the competition has narrowed down. The four actors who are now going to be testing in front of the cameras include: Garrett Hedlund (TRON: LEGACY), Dominic Cooper (MAMA MIA!), Joel Edgerton (ANIMAL KINGDOM) and Luke Evans (CLASH OF THE TITANS). These actors have to test, but a few are still in the running who do not have to audition like Shia LaBeouf and Logan Marshall-Green, but these are not as likely (and Marshall-Green will be in PROMETHEUS which is likely to conflict). So that leaves Alex Pettyfer, Jake Gyllenhaaal, Tobey Maguire, Kellan Lutz, Benjamin Walker and Paul Dano who now appear to be out of the running. Casting should be announced somewhat soon as THE BOURNE LEGACY is set to hit theaters on August 3, 2012.
I actually think any of the four actors testing would be pretty good in this role but if I have to root for anyone it would be Garrett Hedlund or Dominic Cooper as they just seem a little more seasoned as actors.
