Ben Affleck ( http://us.imdb.com/Name?Affleck,+Ben )
was first famous
for his film Good Will Hunting
(co-written and starred with Matt Damon
). He was previously in a bunch of other highly forgettable
and crappy movies
shows before that.
After winning the Oscar for Good Will Hunting, Ben went on to date (and lay the pipe to) Gwyneth Paltrow (who is really my secret girlfriend). They have since broken up (making me really happy).
A little known fact about Ben is that he speaks fairly fluent Spanish. I saw him doing an interview on Telemundo for the movie Reindeer Games, where he spoke Spanish through the whole thing and even had to be bleeped a few times for using swear words
I'm personally not a big fan of Ben's acting, but he does a fair job and seems to be a somewhat decent guy.
