Argued by many to be one of Kevin Smith's best films, 'Chasing Amy' follows the story of comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck), who falls in love with lesbian Alyssa, throwing his friendship with his best friend and work partner into upheaval. Released in 1997, the romantic comedy was the third in Smith's "Jersey Tales" series of films and also featured regular stars Jason Lee and Jason Mewes. Sixteen years later, we take a look back at the cast and see where they are now.
Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have been keeping mum on their upcoming 'Batman vs. Superman' film, despite letting slip that Lex Luthor will pop up as the new villain. With pre-production underway and the recent release of 'Man of Steel' on Blu-ray and DVD, though, stars Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ben Affleck (Batman) have chimed in on what we can expect from the upcoming superhero follow-up.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were bromancing it up before the term became a thing, with the two besties having worked together on various projects like 'Good Will Hunting' and 'Dogma.' Now the duo are reuniting once again on the long-in-development adaptation of the Vertigo comic book 'Sleeper.'
Fans walked away from the 'Man of Steel' live event this past Saturday still knowing little about the upcoming sequel, 'Batman vs. Superman.' (So much for all those teased announcements!) But one person who did get to see something more than commissioned artwork was Kevin Smith, the host of said event, and it came in the form of a first look at Ben Affleck in his Batman suit.
Post-'Argo' Oscar, Ben Affleck has been keeping exceptionally busy. Not only will he be playing Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming 'Batman Vs. Superman'/'Man of Steel 2'/whatever they end up calling it, he's the lead in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl,' has two TV shows (at least) that he's behind, and has just lined up a new directing gig. So, he's definitely brushed that 'Runner Runner' dirt of his shoulder.
Don't start shining a Bat-signal at your TV just yet, but it seems Ben Affleck wasn't quite done with his TV takeover of FOX's 'The Middleman.' Affleck has teamed with longtime partner Matt Damon to bring to CBS a new sitcom starring comedian Tom Papa, but what's their 'More Time with Family' all about?
“What can't Justin Timberlake do?” said the internet after the performer dominated 2013 with the release of two albums, a musical turn in Cannes favorite 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' and a handful of Jimmy Fallon late-night sketches that all went viral. 'Runner Runner' suggests there's really one thing: convince us he's anyone but Timberlake.
'Lincoln Lawyer' director Brad Furman directs the middling thriller, another gambling-infused escapade from 'Rounders' writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien that packs the integrity of their previous efforts without any spark. The writing duo can talk the poker talk, this time immersing their script in the seedy world of online betting. Their leading man can't keep up.
Ben Affleck may have brought on the charm during his interview on 'Jimmy Fallon,' where he talked about his kids and perhaps even quelled some of the outrage over his Batman casting, but Justin Timberlake has seen his dark side. A new clip from 'Runner, Runner,' starring both of these stars, has dropped online, showing how
Bruce Wayne a gambling tycoon deals with his enemies.
Up until now, almost every actor in Hollywood has been asked for their reaction on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in 'Batman vs. Superman' (as if their opinion mattered at all), when the one person we wanted to hear from - Affleck himself - has stayed completely silent.
Until now. Affleck appeared on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night and talked about why he wanted to star as Batman, his reaction to the internet freak out and why his radio silence wasn't an accident.
