It’s been a huge week for casting in Hollywood.

The “Bourne” franchise is bidding goodbye to Matt Damon — and pinning its future on a “Hurt Locker” star.

Meanwhile, Catherine Zeta-Jones showed that her recent mental health issues aren’t slowing down her offers.

Plus: more work for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Blake Lively and more.
