The cast of the upcoming action flick The Great Wall is shaping up rather nicely, and although it sounds like a historical drama, the film is anything but. Matt Damon has joined the cast alongside Willem Dafoe, Pedro Pascal and a roster of notable Chinese stars in the film from acclaimed director Zhang Yimou and Legendary Pictures, the folks who brought you Godzilla.

The secret is, Jimmy Kimmel’s School of Perfect Acting is perhaps the worst acting school on the planet. Let these outtakes and bloopers make that perfectly (tee hee) clear. In his annual post-Oscars show, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host unveiled a look at his eponymous acting school, where’s he trained such stars as Gary Oldman, Jeff Bridges, and Jennifer Aniston, thanks to his decidedly off-beat tactics. Has it profitable? Sure. Is it safe? No.

Currently there are two entirely different ‘Bourne’ franchises in the works in Hollywood. The first is the actual Bourne series (let’s call it Bourne Classic), with Matt Damon returning to the role of mentally-scarred super-spy Jason Bourne alongside director Paul Greengrass. The second is the sequel to 2012’s ‘The Bourne Legacy’ (a.k.a. Diet Bourne), which kept the franchise alive after Damon and Greengrass left by replacing Bourne with Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross, another traumatized government operative on the run. Universal previously planned to continue Cross’ adventures in a sequel directed by Justin Lin, but when Damon and Greengrass recently announced they would return for another ‘Bourne’ film (due in theaters on July 29, 2016) the second Cross movie was delayed.

We’re going to jump straight into spoilers right at the end of this sentence, so if you haven’t had a chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s science fiction adventure yet, you may want to consider turning around.

First of all, if you haven’t seen ‘Interstellar,’ well, this is your one and only warning that major spoilers lie ahead. We good? Let’s continue. About three-fourths of the way through ‘Interstellar' -- a movie I mostly think is pretty good -- we finally meet a character that we’ve been hearing about for the entire movie, Dr. Mann.

Well that didn't last long, did it? With the conclusion of the original 'Bourne' trilogy, director Paul Greengrass said there wasn't really anywhere else for Jason Bourne to go in the franchise, hence the Jeremy Renner spinoff 'The Bourne Legacy.' But it looks like Greengrass and star Matt Damon have come up with an idea to put Jason Bourne back into action.
