Ben Affleck has been sporting some seriously long locks recently. His Justin Bieber-esque shag ‘do has sparked speculation that maybe the actor was going through a mid-life crisis? But looks like he is just prepping for a new role!
Ben’s new shaggy cut is for his role in the new movie, Argo, which he is directing and starring in, his rep told E! News.
The movie will be produced by Ben’s friend George Clooney, and is based “on the true story of how the CIA used a fake sci-fi film to rescue Americans during the Iran hostage crisis in 1981.”
Ben will play the leading man opposite veteran actors Alan Arkin and John Goodman.
We knew there was some reason for the young hairdo. Do you like Ben’s look? Sound off in the comments.
