Brad Pitt Offered ‘Cogan’s Trade’ Contract
Wednesday, November 3 by

Don't throw away your The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford commemorative jacket just yet (in case you were planning on doing that). The film has new relevance! It looks like director Andrew Dominik and stars Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck had so much fun playing Wild West cowboys together that they may schedule another playdate.
Pitt is attached to the lead role (opposite Affleck) in Cogan's Trade, a Boston-based story about an enforcer tasked with tracking down whoever robbed a high stakes mafia poker game. Like on that episode of "The Sopranos." Schedules are still being ironed out, as Dominik was slated to begin shooting Naomi Watts in the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde this January. More importantly, when is Brad Pitt going to get around to making World War Z? We need that film before the zombie thing gets completely beaten back into the Earth. (THR)

Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck Are In ‘Tower Heist’ Too
Tuesday, October 26 by

Tower Heist keeps inching closer to becoming a movie by picking up talent left and right. Matthew Broderick is now on board to play a Wall Street suit who joins Ben Stiller in the plot to get revenge against Alan Alda's Madoff-like character. Fake documentarian Casey Affleck is also joining up as Stiller's best friend/voice of reason. He'll help complicate the would-be robbery when he takes a firm stance against it. Judd Hirsch will play an unspecified role in the film. Let's just assume he'll play an old school New Yorker. Or a cop. Or a guy who looks like a Cookie Puss ice cream cake.

The resemblance is quite haunting. (via /Film)

Casey Affleck: Joaquin Phoenix Documentary Was Fake (Well Duh)
Friday, September 17 by

Breaking News: Casey Affleck has admitted that his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, I'm Still Here, is fake. Affleck followed that bombshell by admitting that he and Ben Affleck are brothers, and that he really likes Boston. He then went on to give the dumbest quote in the history of man (or in at least the past two days):
“I never intended to trick anybody…The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.”
Really, that's weird. Usually when I'm lying out my teeth while taking part in an elaborate hoax, it crosses my mind. Then again, I'm not the type of person who says "quote/unquote" out loud, so maybe I can't relate because I'm not a pretentious #sshole. Although I find that hard to believe, considering my love of A Prairie Home Companion…the radio show, of course, not the movie. (NYT via /Film)

See the Softer (Fatter) Side Of Joaquin Phoenix In ‘I’m Still Here’ Trailer
Monday, August 16 by

We finally have a first look at I'm Still Here, the "documentary" that chronicles Joaquin Phoenix's slow transformation into Zach Galifianakis. Directed by Casey Affleck, we're given a front row seat to Phoenix's imaginary breakdown. Absolutely riveting (in an imaginary way).
The trailer has a pretty cool voice-over. Is that Edward James Olmos? I think it is. If so, somebody get that guy a job selling Ford trucks immediately.
Check it out after the jump…

Hall, Byrne, Woll, and Winstead In The Running To Be Sexually-Harassed By Casey Affleck On ‘The F Word’ Set
Friday, August 6 by

Four young actresses are in the running to play opposite Casey Affleck in The F Word. Rebecca Hall, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose Byrne, Deborah Ann Woll are expected to camera test for the female lead in the quirky, romantic comedy that appeared on the 2008 Black List. It tells the story of a couple who would like to date, but decide to be friends instead while wrestling with their attraction to one another over a long period of time.
Personally, I think all of these actresses are perfect choices for the project and would like to see their careers take off. Sadly, there can be only one. It all depends on who tests best on-camera and freaks out the least when a naked Affleck crawls into her bed in the middle of the night. I think Rebecca Hall has a leg-up on this one.

Magnolia Buys Joaquin Phoenix Rapumentary
Thursday, July 15 by

"You serious, bro?"A little backstory: Joaquin Phoenix went crazy, grew a beard, quit acting, started rapping, and Casey Affleck was there with a camera to capture it all. Online speculation has been that the entire breakdown is fake (and crazy). Now, we will have the opportunity to judge for ourselves this September.Deadline reports that Magnolia has bought the distribution rights to Casey Affleck's I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix. Or, as it should be called I Get Pooped On: That Time Somebody Pooped On Joaquin Phoenix.  That's right. The film is said to include cocaine use, hookers, oral sex with a publicist, loads of full frontal male nudity, and somebody poops on Joaquin as he sleeps. We're not naming any names, but c'mon.

Review: ‘The Killer Inside Me’
Thursday, June 17 by

The Killer Inside Me R, 108min., 2010 Cast: Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Simon Baker, Elias Koteas, Ned Betty, and Bill Pullman Directed by Micheal Winterbottom Screenplay by John Curran based upon the novel by Jim Thompson   The Killer Inside Me is a faithfully adapted, dark, and twisted gem of an exercise in B-movie noir.   From the faded pop color opening credit sequence, director Michael Winterbottom and his perfectly suited cast takes us back to 1950s West Texas, where Central City, Sheriff Deputy Lou Ford (played by Casey Affleck, giving one of his finest and scariest performances to date) doesn't carry a gun and 'sweet talks' his way out of any bad problems. Well, that's what Lou wants you to believe as behind his earnest smile he is one of the most disturbed and violently psychological complex characters this side of the Rio Grande.MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
