    Matt Damon Open To 'Bourne 5,' But If 'Legacy' Is A Hit, He Expects The Franchise To Move On Without Him

    'Man On A Ledge' Star Anthony Mackie Was "Excited Beyond Belief" To Play Jimi Hendrix In Paul Greengrass' Aborted Biopic

    Seeing the name Anthony Mackie in the opening credits is fast becoming a reassuring sign. Not necessarily of the quality of a movie -- we can't say we adored "Real Steel" or "What's Your Number," exactly -- but an indication that at least one good performance will take place over the course of the r...
