Ben Affleck: Casting himself in own film 'Argo'
Talented and good looking actor Ben Affleck will star in 'Argo'.
Affleck named the political thriller as his third directorial project earlier this year. Now, Affleck has revealed that he will star in the film as well, according to Variety.
The film 'Argo' tells the story of a secret 1979 CIA mission in which agents rescued six diplomats being held hostage in Iran by convincing the authorities that they were filming a science fiction film.
The star will portray a CIA agent who comes up with the bizarre extraction plan.
This new film will also star Alan Arkin and John Goodman.
The 'He's Just Not That Into You' actor was rumoured to be joining Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, but reportedly dropped out to focus on Argo.
Soon after, Ben Affleck will also helm the Hollywood adaptation of 'Tell No One'.
The 38-year-old will also be seen in an as-yet-untitled Terrence Malick project alongside Rachel McAdams, which is due for release next year.
