THE BOURNE SUPREMACY star Matt Damon has been eyed to play Republican Senator JOHN McCAIN - by the politician himself.

The McCain family believes that Damon, a Democrat who is supporting American President George W Bush's opponent John Kerry in the upcoming elections, would be the perfect choice to play McCain if plans for a movie based on his life get the green light.

McCain's wife CINDY says, "Our children have a different view about (Damon playing McCain). They had thought maybe DANNY DeVITO would be a better option!

"My pick's Matt Damon. I think he'd be good."
