Happy Birthday, Jason Bourne!

According to his files in the Bourne Ultimatum, today is Jason Bourne's birthday! Why am I celebrating? Because he is, without a doubt, my favorite fictional character!

There were three movies:
The Bourne Identity, 2002
The Bourne Supremacy, 2004
The Bourne Ultimatum, 2007
Although I love them all, if someone made me choose only one to watch for the rest of my life, I'd have to choose Identity. (I think it's because of the romantic elements in it!)

Now, he was born in 1970 as David Webb, but changed his name when he joined that evil group who convinced him he'd be saving American lives. (We all know he was actually killing for them, sometimes even killing American citizens!) Yes, that's right. My favorite fictional character is an assassin. But what a tortured hero, huh?

To celebrate, I thought I'd share some of my favorite shots of him...

 This one is from The Bourne Identity, when he's escaping from the American Embassy.
This, of course, is him with Marie, after they realize they're wanted and before she finds out he's a killer.
 This the movie poster of the 1st movie.  I would LOVE to have a copy of the original movie poster (or a duplicate...I'm not picky!) to hang in my office someday!

 This is one of my favorite pictures. I have a copy of it posted to the cork board above my computer to inspire me as I write my suspense scenes.

To celebrate, I thought about having a drink, but I think it would be more fitting for me to write a suspense scene in Jason's honor! I'm off to do that now!

  1. Hello Bourne!

    I needed to know the birth date of Jason Bourne. I have a collection of movies but couldn't find the actual disc so had to surf through internet and here it is! I'm so glad that someone really this eager like you is out there!

    Thanks very much.
    Do take care,
