Biography

While still in his twenties, the likeable and low-key Casey Affleck, who enjoyed a slow and steady rise as an actor, saw the show business mechanics from the inside out while watching his older brother Ben Affleck gain meteoric Hollywood success - as well as the inevitable and subsequently vicious backlash. Still, the younger Affleck saw himself on another path, eschewing studio-produced Frankenstein projects in favor of eclectic character parts. The promise of his early work in "To Die For" (1995) and "Good Will Hunting" (1997) did eventually lead him to the blockbuster types like "Ocean's Eleven" (2001) and its star-packed sequels. While nestled comfortably into one of Hollywood's most entertaining ensembles, Affleck still found a way to comfortably transform in a variety of projects, creating a witty, quirky onscreen persona along the way. How ironic then, that it was his superstar brother who, despite potential cries of nepotism, cast Affleck in the moody, haunting thriller that was Ben's directorial debut, "Gone, Baby, Gone" (2007) - making critics and audiences see his little brother as a real leading man in his own right at long last.

Bonus Trivia

.

"He's not afraid to do it...He is unself-conscious, and he really is one of those actors where he just makes you look good. Even if you're tangling around a little, he wants to work through it with you. He's not just a soldier you march forward, the best actors never are, but when you point the camera at him he just makes your movie better." – Ben Affleck on directing his brother in "Gone, Baby, Gone" to The Los Angeles Times, Sept. 9, 2007

.

"I find those kind of flawed people much more interesting than contrived superheroes. They're more interesting because it means I get to bring some part of myself to them. It's the tragedy of people that I fall in love with." – Affleck to Interview magazine, September 2007

.

In July 2010, Affleck was sued for sexual harassment by a producer of his offbeat documentary "I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix." Amanda White filed a $2 million lawsuit against Affleck, whom she claimed subjected her to lurid sexual harassment and denied her producing fee after she refused to spend the night in a hotel room with him.
