Tradecraft: Oscar Isaac Joins The Bourne Legacy

Supposedly Oscar Isaac (Robin Hood) was one of the finalists to play the non-Damon, non-Bourne lead role in Tony Gilroy's Robert Ludlum spin-off The Bourne Legacy. As we know, he lost out to perpetual spy franchise fill-in Jeremy Renner. Now Deadline reports that Isaac has received a consolation prize. He will appear in The Bourne Legacy, in another (presumably smaller) part. According to the trade blog, "Isaac has just landed the role of 'Number 3,' another brainwashed assassin in the film, and it's a major role." All I've seen him in is Sucker Punch, and he did not impress me in that, but I don't think it was really his fault (nothing worked in that movie!), so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
