Casey Affleck Breaks Down His Most Iconic Characters | GQ

Ummæli

  • Does he do the movie where he forced himself on some woman? Oh wait, the was RL.

    • @Andreas Persson So no, it's believe only the women who align with your narrative then. Two DIFFERENT brave women came forth with their stories of Casey's s3xual haris-ment, something that generally doesn't have hard evidence, especially when the pred-a-tor ensures the victims are alone. Just because he "made a couple good movies" doesn't give him unfettered access to his female co-stars bodies. Truly sickening.

    • @Andreas Persson #believeallwomen amirite?

    • @Andreas Persson Well apparently he couldn't _stop_ himself either. Difference is, I didn't take advantage of a woman 🙄

  • I think of Casey Affleck as Kevin Myers Brother in American Pie 1 and 2, remember him in those movies?

  • What about American pie?

  • so underrated

  • This dude is becoming like a Gary Oldman type actor

  • The most underrated actor

  • casey affleck is trash and GQ should be ashamed of giving his man a platform. www.vox.com/culture/2018/1/25/16933954/casey-affleck-oscars-2018-me-too

    • @R as if someone being found not guilty in court ever undoes someones actions. as if the court ever put women first lol. if you've never experienced assault on a woman you can't speak on it, sorry :)

    • YOU should be ashamed of your baseless slander of this man. If he was never found guilty of that allegation, and was even defended against it by other people on set at the time, who are you to suggest that he’s guilty, and hence trash? What a freak.

  • Dude is a creep.

  • Man they really cut this up

  • DROWNING MONA - SO UNDERRATED!

  • The zonked tongue conversly settle because gate scilly observe an a tearful bankbook. knotty, level tooth

  • A perpetual boy who always plays men. Pathetic.

  • Casey Affleck......so overrated....such an affected "actor". Boring.

  • 7:15. , yes please, hope a studio executive is watching. 😁

  • Such a great actor, very under rated , doesn't get enough accolades

  • When CA played Morgan in Good Will Hunting, I read somewhere that he was allowed to ad-lib most of his lines. If you rewatch that film, you can get a sense of how funny and talented he is!

  • Gone Baby Gone is perfect. Perfect.

  • Sooo many jump cuts - methinks Mr Affleck probably talked for two hours.

  • Manchester by the sea is @ 10:40. Your welcome

  • I never realized how effortlessly funny he is!

  • One of the best

  • Umm... Good will hunting??

  • Surprised The Killer Inside Me wasn't mentioned.

  • Hi Affleck, it's your long long, long long long long time ago relative here. See ya in our Castle.

  • Casey Affleck, I admire you so much!!! You're so talented!!

  • He's a creep but he's such a good actor. Btw Jesse James is his best.

  • Casey please bring Dr. acula to the big screen

  • Casey, you are my favorite actor!

  • Very seldom in cinema do you get an accurate portrayal of a man, as you do in Manchester by the sea. It was a 3d version of a man as you can get. Brilliant cinema.

  • One of my favorite actors in contemporary movies.

  • I was that stranger at Sundance. For me it was a great experience. :)

  • He's such a bad actor.

  • Don't support abusive people

  • I just enjoyed this so much

  • Casey's got good books!

  • LOVE Casey Affleck! One of my favorites, after Christian Bale.

  • Casey has quickly become one of my favorite actors

  • He’s incredibly intelligent, thoughtful and well spoken.

  • Man, I wish they left that ridiculous music out of the scene in 'Manchester' when he tries to kill himself in the police station. Dead silence would have been so much more effective, in my opinion.

  • I forgot all about "Ain't Them Bodies Saints". I cried like a baby at the end of that one.

  • Why are you giving this man a platform

  • Light of my life

  • No Triple9? What the faack..

  • so we have Neil Patrick Harris as the red hood where do we put Casey? maybe beyond?

  • We are the same age He’s the most real actor today Any time he shows up He could bring something out special Always believable

  • The breezy rise naturally listen because trip postmeiotically post mid a volatile politician. scintillating, striped capital

    • Say what now?

  • Wow this was weak! No good will hunting, oceans movies, or interstellar smh

  • His best character is the Dunkin Guy.... Go back to staaabucks!!!

    • That’s STAAAAHbucks at the Dunkin where that was filmed 😂

    • Ahahahahah true

  • My favourite actor... Assassination of Jesse James, Gone baby Gone, Manchester by the Sea, Oldman with a Gun... What an actor❤️

  • "Gerry" is a beautiful movie. Works like a play.

  • shoutsout House of Leaves! chillin on the shelf.

  • Since I saw him in *Soul Survivors* I knew he was special actor. Not surprised he has won an oscar. But Instead of winning it for Manchester by the Sea, I think he should've won it for His portrayal of Robert Ford.

  • I never really took him seriously as an actor until I watched The Assassination of Jesse James. What a quietly powerful and poignant performance, he totally blew me away. It also helps that the movie is a stone-cold masterpiece.

  • Crazy how much praise this guy is getting since, you know, he sexually harrassed and exploited multiple women. He just gets off the hook because he paid them to shut up? Yikes.

    • @R Joaquin Pheonix used to be his brother in law, says it happened and never talks to him anymore.

    • Do you know what an “allegation” means dumbass??

  • “Shot it in Transylvania “. so that would be Romania then - it’s not 1700

    • Well no because Transylvania still exists as a region

  • He’s so attractive

    • I don’t know why, but I see a cross between Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck here. Never thought this before in Casey’s appearance, but maybe as he’s gotten older.

  • even though he won an Oscar he still never came an A list actor

  • @7.17 Is anyone else going to join me in asking for another movie where Casey gets to play Patrick Kenzie...it'd be so awesome 7.17 he's keen.....if enough people ask for it I think it could happen....loved that movie, loved him in it...can't see anyone else...perfect mix of heart and fire he's so subtle and yet so powerful....in my top five fav actors of all time

  • He is very enigmatic and charismatic. Love the rawness.

  • The assassination of jesse james is the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed

  • I thought this dude was perma banned by the ultra leftists...

  • Fantastic actor, love his energy. Reminds me of Roy Scheider a lot. Incredibly beautiful blue eyes as well.

  • Denzel should have won!

  • This guy is a brilliant actor and has been in some fantastic films. I love Gone Baby Gone, Assassination of Jesse James and Manchester By The Sea.

  • 'A Ghost Story' had me in tears for days and stuck with me for weeks. Even his brief performance on Interstellar, especially the video recording scene was breathtaking.

  • His portrayal of Robert Ford is spectacular and criminally underrated

  • One of the best actors

  • One of my favorite actors! ❤

  • Manchester by the sea may be the best film I’ve ever seen

    • @Mike Killagreen watched all them but the Ten Commandments. I prefer other gangster films then good fellas tbh

    • @Ben Gorry You haven't seen Taxi Driver, Goodfella, The Ten Commandments, Raiders of The Lost Ark, . Go back before the year 2000. This movie wasn't even the best of the year.

    • @True North like what, what you suggest I’ve probably watched

    • @Mike Killagreen I’ve seen hundreds, just my personal preference

    • Watch more movies

  • First thing I ever saw him in was Drowning Mona. I love that movie so much, I can't see him out of that blonde hideous wig 😅

  • Hey GQ, please do a Anthony Hopkins most iconic characters video as soon as possible. The fans deserve one.

  • I wish he would talk about Drowning Mona. I love this movie apparently people hated it? So underrated.

  • I love the Sundance Story. Hahaha stop looking at me.

  • “You’ve gone nose deaf”. “Pack your things!” Love his character in the oceans’s series “who you calling ‘friend’ jackass!”

  • Favorite actor ever. Always so special and compelling on the screen.

  • The fact that no one in the comments mentioned A Ghost Story and the fact that he's literally a predator is weird

  • Killer inside me 👀👀

  • It sucks Virgil Malloy isn’t included in this

  • yes plz do more gone babies!

  • Netflix doesn't have a single Casey Affleck movie. Isn't that always the case.

  • I love his role in the movie assasination of jesse james

    • Me too. His character was super awkward, almost creepy. Loved Brad Pitt in that as well, great movie.

  • Fantastic actor, and seems to have a good perspective on life. He'll always be one of the Mormon twins to this Utah guy. :)

  • Hey Casey, you’re an abusive fuckhead

  • Assassination of Jesse James... may be the best underrated movie of modern times. its what I always use as an example of when a film is really "art".

  • no oceans? Lame

  • Y’all should do Nav next

  • No American Pie?

  • Brad Pitt is also fantastic in The Assassination of Jesse James. Amazing and overlooked film all around.

  • NGL, I have no clue who he is. I don't think he's been in any movie I've ever watched.

    • I’m guessing you only watch Marvel movies then?

  • The Assassination of Jesse James by the Robert Ford is just... Perfect. Love Casey!

  • Yes! Finally.

  • Hasn’t this man sexily assaulted women in the past? Why is GQ giving him this platform?

  • his status as an actor and the way his career is being appreciated just reminds you that Hollywood (and its AUDIENCES) are willing to forget anything as long as you’re a white man with privilege and connections. so what if he abused his authority as director to “sexually harass” (climb into bed in underwear completely unsolicited) a female cinematographer, as long as he turned in a critically acclaimed performance?

    • It's not just a white thing. It's a talent thing. Everyone was cool with Michael Jackson diddling kiddies. Although, you could make the argument that he was white at the time so maybe your point is valid

    • @BetterDazeRecords Never

    • @R He did admit it lol.

    • how do you know if that ever happened mr. eyewitness? oh wait, someone just hmu on twitter saying you committed a crime, so HOLD ON! you’re 100% a criminal now! Right?!

  • Good Will Hunting?

  • Loved him in To Die For and Good Will Hunting. No one plays those working class guys like he does. Dunkin’ Donuts guy is also amazing.

  • Just watched Our Friend and it’s amazing!

  • Where's Good Will Hunting? Ocean's Trilogy? ParaNorman? Interstellar?

  • “Ben Affleck’s Brother” is how my mom and I used to classify Casey Affleck. Now it is more like “Casey Affleck’s brother” to describe Ben Affleck. No offense, it is just Casey has become so phenomenal.

    • @OGKennyPowers yes and yes! Same page now :)

    • @ns2110theonly I agree on the never losing himself In a role. HUGE part of why he just never worked as Batman for me. I definitely think his future is behind the camera, while Casey it seems like is just getting started with his recognition

    • @OGKennyPowers I don’t totally disagree there! Outstanding acting in the town, not so much in Argo although his directing was wonderful. And even when he’s good he never gets lost in the role, though he plays fine when he wants to. But that’s not the same kind of natural gift that Casey has, who ALWAYS transforms into the persona and body of the character he’s playing. So much so that you don’t realize it’s an actor acting. The word I was looking for-transformative, imho just a couple levels higher. I do agree that Ben’s a wonderful director. Naturally-all just IMHO :)

    • @ns2110theonly well I wouldn’t discredit that far lol. Ben is an Oscar award winning director and phenomenal actor in his own right imo. He’s outstanding in “the town” and “Argo”

    • @Mike Killagreen and which part of that would be ridiculous? 🙄

  • I wouldn't expect him to talk so much 🤔

  • well, next logical move is to play DC villain what do you think will suit him?
