Ben Affleck hilariously discusses his continued plight of having a name similar to the Aflac insurance company. Affleck, who is one of the most well-known and recognizable stars working in movies today, got his start with the 1993 film Dazed and Confused but is now equally renowned for his work as a writer, director, and producer. In addition to having won two Oscars, Affleck is also a fan-favorite among comic book movie fans for his nuanced and dark take on Batman in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Most recently, Affleck appeared in Ridley Scott’s medieval epic The Last Duel and can now be seen as Charlie in George Clooney’s The Tender Bar. The film, which is based on the memoir of the same name by J.R. Moehringer, tells the story of a young J.R. and his quest to find a father figure amongst the patrons of his uncle Charlie’s bar. The film as a whole has been met with mixed critical reception, but Affleck’s performance is frequently mentioned in reviews as a high point. The Tender Bar, which was released theatrically in late December, was released on Amazon Prime on January 7.
