Jeremy Renner in 'Bourne Legacy' - FIRST LOOK!

Check out this first look of Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy (via USA Today)!

The 41-year-old actor joins the cast of the hit franchise’s latest installment as Aaron Cross, along with Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.

Matt Damon, who starred in the first three Bourne films, won’t be appearing in Bourne Legacy but says he approves of Jeremy as the film’s new star.

“When [director] Paul Greengrass and I were talking about the character and maybe doing a fourth one a couple years ago and maybe passing it off to somebody, Renner was the guy we talked about,” Matt told MTV News.

“He’s an obvious choice,” he added, “because he’s such a good actor and can carry a movie.”

    So Jeremy going to carry on Mission Impossible and Bourne?

  • Haylie

    He was great in Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol so I have no doubt he’ll be great in Bourne Legacy too.

    I love Renner and I can’t wait to see him in Bourne! But I have to confess I’m getting a little sick and tired of Matt Damon spouting off like he has some involvement in Renner as the choice for Bourne. Matt walked away from it, grandstanding about how he wasn’t going to do anything without his director buddy. He even trashed his good friend Gilroy who wrote his Bourne movies and who wrote this one and is directing Renner. Then he doubles back and apologizes, and now he is talking about Renner like he gave birth to him. I always like Matt Damon until he started acting so big headed and mean lately.
    He needs to sit down and shut up sometimes.

    Renner seems like a very good replacement.

    I watched The Hurt Locker three months ago but didn’t think too much of him or his character but when I saw MI: Ghost Protocol I was hooked to this man. Great actor!! Glad he’s from Modesto because I am too.

  • Agree

    If Damon doesn’t want this role, then they certainly made a great choice. This guy can act!!! Thank goodness! He’s just natural behind the camera. He’s acting, but he doesn’t seem like he is. He doesn’t over-emote. His mannerisms are so true to life. I always love handsome men on film, but there is also a great inner quality about him. If he’s Bourne, I will watch. I also saw him in Mission Impossible last week and thought he can really pull off emotion well. Very well. Bravo! I can’t wait!
