Ryan Gosling Is Joining Clint Eastwood, Madonna, and Mel Gibson in a Very Special Club

Ben Affleck

Starred in: Good Will Hunting ('97); Dogma ('99); Pearl Harbor ('01); Daredevil ('03); Gigli ('03); The Town ('10)
DirectedGone Baby Gone ('07); The Town

Even though his first self-made short bears the unfortunate title I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney, Ben's directing career has actually proven more consistent than his acting career. His recent output of GBabyG and The Town were both smart, well-paced crime dramas. If only the same could be said about Paycheck, or if anything nice could be said about Gigli.
