Lee, Costner join Company

The days of Kevin Costner making porous movie choices seem to be behind him. Costner and the always solid Tommy Lee Jones will join Ben Affleck--another actor on the upswing--in THE COMPANY MEN, an independently financed drama about the impact that a corporate downsizing has on its casualties and survivors. Costner and Jones previously appeared in Oliver Stone's JFK together.

John Wells--the executive producer of "ER" wrote and will direct the film, which sees Jones play a morally inclined senior partner in the downsized firm who struggles with the greedy actions of his dubious partners; Affleck as a corporate bigwig whose luxury car and six-figure salary vanish after he gets laid off; and Costner as his brother-in-law, a humble drywall installer who gives Affleck's character a construction job.

The trio of Oscar winners make for an interesting ensemble and the film's subject matter is timely to say the least. I'm glad that Costner and Affleck have found new life in their careers, which at one point seemed all but extinguished. As for Tommy Lee Jones--he was, and always will be the man.

Excuse me, TBagNUrMom is it?

While I agree Mr. Affleck fights like a girl, maybe you could take some time off from "T-bagin' my mom" to do a little reaserch before you make comments like that. Because Tommy LEE and Tommy LEE-JONES are two seperate people. And while they both at one point probably banged Pam Anderson, only Tommy Lee(the drummer for Moltey Crue) had the shnoz(quite literally) to put it on video. Though I'm sure Mr. Jones would accept the "Gratious" complement.

This film is

This film is on my radar...thats all I'm sayin.

Costner wins an upset

Okay, I'm hoping TBag's just kidding.

Jones and Costner could sport a sombrero way better than Affleck, probably, but he might handle ski boots better.

My money's on Costner, actually, cuz Jones, while legendary, is too old for his heart to really be in the fight, and Affleck, well, just never convinced me as an action star.

Tommy Lee

Anyone who saw Ben's action scenes in Dare Devil knows he fights like a chic so I'd have to go with Lee. He is one bad a$$ mo' fo'! Plus, he made that video with Pam Anderson!

no contest!

tommy would annihilate the pair of 'em by holding their ankles in each hand and continuously smashing them together infront of him until they became nothing but bland actor paste...which he would then drink, just so he could piss them out.
