Top 5: Ben Affleck Movies

Top 5


With Ben Affleck appointed as the new Batman, it’s appropriate to take a look back at his career as an actor and highlight his top 5 films.  What you’ve got here is the Kevin Smith films and Good Will Hunting, then ten years of Affleck as a celebrity punchline and now Affleck the actor/director.  It’s been a twisty road for him, but he has turned in some great performances.  In addition to Batman/Superman, he’s also set to star in Gone Girl, the adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s novel directed by David Fincher.  Good Affleck on the horizon.  Here are my five favorite performances by Bfleck (I’m putting that out there as a new nickname).

1. Argo

2. Hollywoodland (where he plays, ironically, Superman…first to play both?)
Hollywoodland, George Reeves, Ben Affleck  3. Good Will Hunting (remember HIS performance, not the movie itself)
Good Will Hunting, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Minnie Driver

4. The Town
The Town, Ben Affleck, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Blake Lively

5. The Company Man (check this out on Netflix instant stream)
Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner
