Matt Damon Passed on 'Avatar'
The "Bourne" star revealed he was originally offered the role of Jake Sully in James Cameron's Oscar-winning film, but had to turn it down.
"I talked to Cameron and I read the script and I knew the movie was gonna be a big hit," he said. "I really wanted to do 'Avatar' and work with Jim Cameron and watch him direct and learn a lot ... but we were finishing 'The Bourne Ultimatum' and I couldn't leave; it was a scheduling issue.” —Xfinity Entertainment Programmers (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
