Now that he’s cast as the legendary Dark Knight opposite Henry Cavill in Batman v. Superman, Ben Affleck has never been more in demand. He’s also the star of the highly acclaimed Gone Girl, the movie adaptation that’s been hogging the Box Office for several weeks now. But what else don’t we know about this devoted husband to the lovely Jennifer Garner?
Ben Affleck has an interesting lineage.
Affleck is of English, Irish, German, Swedish, Scottish and French descent. It’s no wonder he’s so multi-talented!
Matt Damon has been his good friend since they were kids.
When Ben was eight and Matt was ten, they lived two blocks away from each other and instantly became friends. We all know how that turned out—Good Will Hunting is proof of how awesome their friendship is.
Being a director is something he is very, very good at.
“Gone Baby Gone”, “The Town”, and “Argo” are all critically acclaimed, proving that Ben Affleck not only has the acting chops but also the directorial skills to make it in Hollywood.
Burger King and Ben Affleck go way back.
Affleck’s first career shot was for a Burger King commercial.
Ben Affleck and costumes apparently didn’t mix.
“By playing a superhero in Daredevil, I have inoculated myself from ever playing another superhero… Wearing a costume was a source of humiliation for me and something I wouldn’t want to do again soon,” Affleck once said. Obviously we’re going to see more of Ben Affleck in costume as Batman. How did Zack Snyder convince him, we wonder?
