Matt Damon ONLY Has 25 Lines in 'Jason Bourne'

Jason Bourne.

One of the biggest challenges for many actors is memorizing pages upon pages of dialogue for a TV show or movie. Luckily for Matt Damon that wasn't a problem as he only had 25 lines of dialogue. This news comes after an interview in The Guardian where it was revealed producers thought Matt Damon's character has evolved into a person who does little talking. Here’s Damon himself on the decision make the character a man of very few words:

Well, I’ve done it three times. In the first movie, the Marie Kreutz character is still alive, so Bourne has a sounding board and he’s more confused about who he is and a lot more chatty. Once she dies in the first act of the second movie, it’s really a very lonely character. And we talked about that mostly on the second one. I remember [screenwriter> Tony [Gilroy] writing me an email saying, ‘You do realize what this means? You do realize you’re not going to talk in this movie.’ I said, ‘No, I love that.'”

This is not the first time an action movie star had little to no lines. Arnold Schwarzenegger was paid $15 million to star in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a movie where he only speaks 700 worlds in 137 minutes. That’s roughly $21,429 per word. In addition, Henry Cavill's Superman only had 43 lines of dialogue in the entire movie. Via The Guardian Related: What do you think?
