The Bourne Ultimatum gets its baddie

It’s already filming yet until now, it didn’t have a baddie. Now The Bourne Ultimatum, the last in the original Robert Ludlum trilogy to be filmed with Matt Damon as Jason Bourne/David Webb, has got itself an evil Spanish-speaking assassin at last: Edgar Ramirez. You might have seen him in that Keira Knightley rubbish, Domino, but that’s unlikely.

Why Spanish-speaking? No idea, although the villain of the book, The Bourne Ultimatum, is Carlos The Jackal, the infamous Caracas-born terrorist. Interestingly, Carlos’ real name was Ilich Ramírez Sánchez and Edgar Ramirez was also born in Caracas. However, Ramirez will be playing an assassin called Paz. Fun parallels though, right?
