Ugh, it's confirmed that he's doing this.

Honestly, Hollywood is so dumb about these things, he's the golden boy because he does moderately well at box office, but really looking at his track record is nothing to crow about: Forever Young, Regarding Henry, Felicity, Alias (which was good for 2 seasons and ruined for 3 more), Mission Impossible 3 (well, it was better than MI2 but that's not saying much), Cloverfield, he has a lot of middling TV-esque stuff in his portfolio.
