Ben Affleck Crashes John Krasinski ‘GMA’ Interview (VIDEO)
Krasinski is directing a one-night-only performance that will bring together big stars to perform an unrehearsed, live on-stage reading of the Good Will Hunting screenplay, for which Affleck and Matt Damon won Oscars for co-writing. At the end of Krasinski’s “GMA” interview, one of the co-anchors revealed, “We have someone here who knows a little something about that movie,” to which the actor asked, “What?! Is Matt Damon here?” But when Affleck walked out instead, Krasinski joked, “Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know you had the handsome one.”
Affleck was in the building to promote his upcoming action-thriller, The Accountant, in which he plays a character who’s on the Autism spectrum. The actor spoke about it during his interview, noting he “did a lot of research with experts, [and] people on the Autism spectrum” to play the role. He added, “They were really excited that a character who’s autistic is the protagonist of this movie… And so, I’m hoping to make those folks proud, and I’m really proud of the movie.” Watch both Krasinski and Affleck’s “GMA” interviews in the videos below!
