Ben Affleck Returns to Movies a Changed Man

Ben Affleck picAfter a string of bad movies, Ben Affleck has gotten his career back on track and is receiving good buzz for his portrayal of the late George Reeves in the upcoming film "Hollywoodland." After Ben's tabloid romance with J-Lo made him a laughingstock, a two year hiatus, a marriage to Jennifer Garner, and a new baby have made him a new man.

He said recently: “I love being a father. It’s wonderful. It’s changed my life. It all sounds like platitudes and cliches, and that’s because they’re the truth.”

In addition to being a happy man in his personal life, Ben is getting kudos for his performance in "Hollywoodland." The movie is based on the true story of the late actor George Reeves who played Superman on the 1950s TV Series, 'The New Adventures of Superman', and was found dead in the bedroom of his home. His death remains a mystery but was called a suicide at the time.

According to the NY Post: "Affleck, who wears a prosthetic nose and sings several songs in Spanish, nails Reeves' self-deprecating charm and the poignancy of an actor who became famous to a young audience who couldn't distinguish between him and the character he was playing. This comes most notably in a scene during which a terrified Reeves, in costume as Superman, has to confront a youngster who has brought a loaded gun to fire at his superhero."

Affleck says he is now more interested in good scripts and less concerned about money than he has been in the past: "It got to a point in my life where what was available to me was much more interesting stuff that wasn't about money, it wasn't about big poster movies."
