bourne 5 cast

Actor Scott Shepherd may not have too many film credits to his name, but he seems to have everything required to become a great modern “that guy.” You know, an actor whose name you may not necessarily know, but whose presence is unmistakable. You watch him hold his own against Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies and you’re convinced that you’ve seen him in a dozen other movies. In reality, his biggest film role prior to that was “NYPD Detective” in Side Effects.

But showcasing your chops in a new Steven Spielberg thriller is a great way to shoot a massive syringe of adrenaline into your film career. Now, Shepherd is set to appear in the new Jason Bourne movie. That feels like the next natural step. Getting annoyed by an amateur spy played by Tom Hanks surely must lead to getting punched in the face by a master spy played by Matt Damon.
