As a wise man once sang, “Life is a rollercoaster”, and no-one in Hollywood better exemplifies that than Ben Affleck, a man who’s experienced enough highs and lows to keep him going several lifetimes. With heist thriller The Town taking him back to his old Boston stamping ground, we’ve run a forensic eye over those moments of glorious triumph and incredible career catastrophe. Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy ride…

Ben Affleck: A Movie-By-Movie Guide  | Dazed And Confused (1993)
Dazed And Confused (1993)

There are worse movies to kick off your feature career in earnest than a role in Richard Linklater’s Dazed And Confused, and worse roles than that of Fred O’Bannion, a dim-witted jock who likes nothing more than kicking (or batting) freshman ass.

Nope, so Ben’s had the most impressive rise from these humble beginnings.

I had to watch it again just to try and spot all the cameos in it.   The fact that Affleck is willing to send himself up like this grants him a lot of respect from me (not that I imagine that matters sp; Top class!
