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.
Based on the real-life experiences of writer (and 'Law and Order' creator) Dick Wolf, 'School Ties' follows a young Jewish man named David Greene (Brendan Fraser) as he's accepted into a prestigious prep school and must hide his religious background from his antisemitic classmates. Released in 1992, the film boasted an incredible cast, including then little-known actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to now.
Though Ben Affleck is surely in training to put on the cape and cowl for his turn as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming 'Batman Vs. Superman' movie, the Oscar-winning filmmaker has just lined up his next directorial assignment. The catch is it's for the small screen, as he will be producing and helming the pilot for the new FOX show 'The Middle Man.'
