THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN

Academy Award winning actor, CASEY AFFLECK (John Hunt), is an accomplished and striking performer who has established himself as a powerful leading man.

Affleck recently starred in Kenneth Lonergan's MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, which tells the story of a solitary janitor whose life is transformed when he returns to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew. Making its debut at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Affleck's performance was the most acclaimed of the year garnering over 40 regional critics' awards, a Golden Globe Award, Critics' Choice Award, Independent Spirit Award, National Board of Review Award, New York Film Critics Circle Award, Gotham Award, BAFTA and ultimately an Academy Award for "Best Actor."

Affleck was previously nominated for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance in the character drama THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD. Written and directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper), the film follows Ford's (Affleck) complicated relationship with Jesse James (Brad Pitt).

The actor garnered significant praise for his starring role alongside Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman and Michelle Monaghan in Ben Affleck's directorial debut GONE BABY GONE, based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Affleck co-wrote with and starred alongside Matt Damon in the independent road movie GERRY, directed by Gus Van Sant. He also appeared in Van Sant's GOOD WILL HUNTING and TO DIE FOR. Additional film credits include; Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR, opposite Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway; OUT OF THE FURNACE, opposite Christian Bale; AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, opposite Rooney Mara; Steven Soderbergh's OCEANS trilogy, alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt; TRIPLE 9, opposite Woody Harrelson and Kate Winslet; and Disney's THE FINEST HOURS.

Affleck was last seen in David Lowery's highly acclaimed A GHOST STORY opposite Rooney Mara, which was released by A24 in the summer 2017 and was included in multiple critics Top Ten lists for best film of the year.

Affleck is currently in post-production on his directorial feature LIGHT OF MY LIFE, which he also wrote and stars in. The story follows a father (Affleck) and daughter living on the outskirts of society destabilized by a deadly pandemic.

On stage, in 2002 Affleck appeared in the West End debut of Kenneth Lonergan's award-winning play This Is Our Youth. He played the role of Warren alongside Matt Damon and Summer Phoenix.

Affleck's production company Sea Change Media has an exclusive first-look production deal with Amazon Studios. Sea Change Media looks to develop bold, authentic, smart content, shining a light on underrepresented voices and stories, and operating with a philosophy of inclusivity and collaboration.
