Your Buddy Ben Affleck

With Argo about ready to come out, I decided to write about the remarkable, unlikely comeback that Ben Affleck has orchestrated over the last half-decade. Be honest: After Gigli, how many people thought he'd be in line for an Oscar nomination for Best Director? My piece is up at Deadspin.

(P.S. As an added bonus, here's the first part of a short Affleck directed back in 1993: I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney. To be clear, I haven't watched it yet, so there's always a chance there's some objectionable material in here.)
