Ben Affleck goes retro on the set of Argo

4 years agoby:

When I see Ben Affleck and Alan Arkin on the set of ARGO, I immediately start to think of the Bee Gees. It's a terrible, terrible cliche. Thank you SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER for making me think of one band anytime the 70s comes up. It's either that or ABBA and I'd much rather think about the Bee Gees.

Bad (or good) taste in music aside, some photos from the set of Affleck's ARGO popped up on the internets today. I'm not going to sit here and analyze his 70s clothing or his hair, this isn't E! Online.

The film is about the 1979 Iran hostage crisis and centers on, "CIA "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Medez (Affleck) who cooks up a crazy scheme to free six American hostages stranded in the home of the Canadian ambassador to Iran." The last time we saw Affleck in anything was THE TOWN. He directed that flick and will be serving as helmer on this one as well. The great Alan Arkin can be seen next in THE MUPPETS.

Affleck was the BOMB in Phantoms yo! lol All kidding aside, I love The Fleck. Casey too. Gone Baby Gone and The Town are my shit! I was about to watch the new Pirates online in homage to Michael Bolton but I think I'll go watch The Town instead...

Sorry for the double post. My computer's retarded.

So let me edit this instead and leave you with... In my best Bawstin accent btw. "You grew up right here! Same rules that I did." "I'm puttin' this whole town in my rear view." (Jeremy Renner to Jon Hamm) "Fack you!"

This explains his hair

He's been growing his hair out so he can be legit in this film rather than relying on a wig. It works well, but yes, the chain and oversized collar definitely feels a bit comical- which I suppose works for ARGO's plot.

Movie will be quite good I'm sure, however being born in 71 I am quite pleased that I was a little too young to wear those outfits. However I did have the 80's mullet thing going on ..hands head in shame....
