Jason Bourne will see the addition of Oscar-winner Tommy Lee Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) to the cast, as well as the return of Julia Stiles – who previously starred alongside Damon in the first three Bourne films. As he spoke about Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander joining Jason Bourne, Damon explained what a big part casting plays in the series.
One thing about these movies is that the casts are so good. I always feel so amazed at the people we get. If we have any kind of formula, it’s hiring the very best actors we can to fill out these roles, and Alicia and Tommy Lee are two absolute heavyweights.
Matt Damon told EW in an interview, Jason Bourne will feel much more like a continuation of the first three Bourne films than an independent addition to the franchise.
This is the completion of this journey that started in the Bourne Identity. It’s part of the first three [movies], it’s not a whole new chapter. It feels like the conclusion, even though we’re not saying it’s the conclusion, it feels like the conclusion of my identity journey. It goes deeper than Ultimatum, basically.
