Ben Affleck Starts Filming Argo

We'd say that third time's a charm, but Ben Affleck's frist two movies were AWESOME!!

It's star packed, and sounds absolutely nuts (in a good way):

In a quick summary of the synopsis, the film is about six US hostages that have escaped the grasp of their Iranian hostage takers during the famous 1979 crisis. They make their way to the home of a Canadian ambassador, but require an extreme plan to make it out of the country. Enter a preposterous, movie production scheme and some guts of steel, and you have one of the wildest stories in recent covert history (or, so we know).

In addition to directing, Affleck will star in the film, which will also include "Breaking Bad" Emmy winner Bryan Cranston, John Goodman — he of frightening "Community" guest arc this season — and Alan Arkin, perhaps the funniest film grandfather of the past ten years.

We can't wait to see it, but we're a sucker for Affleck's flicks. Plus he looked super seksi in The Town (that stubble!)!

Hope all goes well, Ben!

    The real story is more than enough for another movie [one already filmed called 'The Canadian Caper', without more 'preposterous' yankee BS injected to hype it up.
    It was carefully orchestrated by the Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor; thinking the Americans came up with it would be a slap to the Canucks.

    It will be interesting how the Canadian Ambassador portrayed. History shows that Ambassador Ken Taylor was the leader and brains to get the Americans out. Canada played a very vital part in securing the safety of the group. But I am sure that this film (second to Canadian Caper) will be loosely based in reality with guns a blazing, with hostages shooting their way out of Iran.
