Casey Affleck Breaks Down His Most Iconic Characters | GQ

  • Why diddnt he talk about interstellar?

  • The Assassination of Jesse James is a really underappreciated movie. I already thought it had unimaginable depth even before Casey gave his take on it.

  • When there’s so much talent in one place it’s easy to lose diamonds like this guy. I always like seeing him in a movie lead or not. If hes in it, even if I don’t like the movie, I know I’ll like him in it.

  • Light of My Life is a classic film epic LEGENDARY like I was at the pizza shop they called me the legend for a very embarrassing reason i would show up after 10 years and wreck another 5 cars in less than 3 years crazy i drove on speed like a maniac and enjoyed the heavy metal tunes the phish but it could not last forever we all burn out some sooner than others when Justin like Icarus flew too close to the sun over and over again That is his only film that i would call Greatness or GQ calls it what Iconic characters

  • I love Movies & the art of Acting but I Never really Remember actors Names, Just their faces... Swear I never knew this Was Ben Afflecks brother 🤦🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️. I watched this because I know his Face & respect his skill level in everything I’ve seen him in. My favorite movie is Reindeer Games randomly...

    • It's amongst the greatest. In my opinion, DDL's There Will Be Blood is. But I respect your opinion. Casey conveyed and portrayed grief and trauma in such a masterful and realistic manner that I understand why he won for Best Actor. He made me sob for days. Absolutely heartbreaking.

    • @Andreas Persson So no, it's believe only the women who align with your narrative then. Two DIFFERENT brave women came forth with their stories of Casey's s3xual haris-ment, something that generally doesn't have hard evidence, especially when the pred-a-tor ensures the victims are alone. Just because he "made a couple good movies" doesn't give him unfettered access to his female co-stars bodies. Truly sickening.
