Is Australia’s Joel Edgerton going to be cinema’s next ass-kicking amnesia spy?

Edgerton, soon to appear in “The Thing” (a dreadfully titled prequel to the John Carpenter film of the same name), is one of only a few actors who have been asked to test for the new “Bourne” film, “The Bourne Legacy”.

The film, somewhat of a spin-off of the previous “Bourne” films, one which won’t feature series staple Matt Damon, is being helmed by Tony Gilroy.

According to Deadline, Gilroy has asked to see “Animal Kingdom” and “The Square” scene-stealer Edgerton as well as Dominic Cooper (“Tamara Drewe”), Garett Hedlund (“TRON Legacy”), and Luke Evans (“The Amateur American”).
Shia LaBeouf and Taylor Kitsch, though not testing, are believed to have either met with Gilroy or the studio to discuss the possibility of inheriting the “Bourne” torch.

Who do you see in the role?
