Season 1, Episode 3

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Matt Damon

From: The Bourne Identity

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

Matt Damon stars as Jason Bourne in the Bourne series, but when we leap to The Martain we find him playing geeky botanist Mark Watney, which earnt him an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe award.

Where are we leaping to?

Director: Ridley Scott

To: Matchstick Men

Chosen by:
Crew (Scott)
Film (Glenn)

Ridley Scott has directed some great films, but also some terrible films. We leap from one of his best to one of his less successful films, but still one of his better films, Matchstick Men (and our second Nic Cage film!)
