Robin Williams in The Bourne Ultimatum

I’ve enjoyed the Bourne Identity films so far. I haven’t LOVED them… but they’ve been pretty good. What has surprised the hell out of me is that Matt Damon actually makes a really good action star. Who knew?

But now with just weeks to go until they start filming the next film “The Bourne Ultimatum”, word is coming out that it looks like Robin WIlliams may be cast in the film as well. As you know, I think Williams is one of the very BEST damn dramatic actors alive today. He is SERIOUSLY overlooked (despite the fact that the man has an Oscar and several other nominations).

The folks over at CHUD are reporting the following:

A spy tells Cinescape that Matt Damon will be reteaming with a hirsute fella who helped him get famous in the first place – Robin Williams. According to the scooper, Williams will be playing someone “very close” to Jason Bourne in the third film. What that means is unclear.

So is this reliable? It’s hard to say. But the fact that Damon and WIlliams have worked together before with outstanding success seems to give this one some legs. If it’s true we should hear some official word in the next few weeks. I hope it is.
