Vulture is reporting that Australian actor Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom) is impressing Universal as he's being looked at for two of their films. First writer/director Tony Gilroy wants Joel for The Bourne Legacy yet the studio feels James McAvoy (X-Men First Class, Wanted) or Shia LaBeouf (Transformers 1-3) would be better known internationally. Universal is also considering Joel for the huntsman role in Snow White & The Huntsman as Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman have passed on the project.
Edgerton is currently leading Universal's upcoming The Thing prequel and is an excellent actor that's been taking up solid Aussie roles in the last couple of years. Hopefully he ends up in Bourne Legacy as he seems a perfect person for the role and Huntsman sounds like it's on it's last legs. He's a future action star in the making and if Joel doesn't get Bourne he'll be offered another franchise soon.
