Casey Affleck joins Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in their Whitey Bulger biopic
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
A few days ago, Matt Damon revealed that he and BFF Ben Affleck were teaming up on a biopic on famous Boston mobster Whitey Bulger. But not much else was set in stone other than they were going to try and do it. Well, it seems things might be moving along faster than expected as Ben’s brother Casey Affleck will be playing William Bulger, aka “The Corrupt Midget”, who was the brother of Whitey. William was a political leader in Boston and it will be interesting to see what they do with William’s character since his actual involvement with Whitey is still debated today.
Casey Affleck has come a long way from abusing his brother’s baseball glove in GOOD WILL HUNTING and has had some impressive turns in some decent movies. His addition to Matt and Ben’s film will only help it. But if they don’t set a start date soon, I’m concerned this project will never see the light of day.
