First look at a scruffy Ben Affleck in Argo
I’m compiling my lest of the top movies to look forward to in 2012 (look for it on January 2nd) and one of the films that’s probably going to make the list is Ben Affleck‘s ARGO. The movie is based off the true story of a CIA operation that saved six American hostages. The twist? The CIA team poses as filmmakers making a movie in order to get close to the kidnappers. It sounds like a great basis for a movie and with Affleck at the helm and in the lead, I’m very much excited about it. To say Ben Affleck has come full circle in his Hollywood career would be an understatement. If you had told me back in the Bennifer days that he’d be one of my favorite directors, I would have thought you were crazy.
Along with Ben Affleck, the film will star Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Taylor Schilling, Kyle Chandler and Tate Donovan. The film is due to hit theaters on September 14th.
