Ben Affleck Has Surprisingly Funny Hidden Talent, Says Co-Star

ben affleckNot only is Ben Affleck going to be our new Batman, he's in Gone Girl. I've had the book for almost a year now and haven't read it yet. What?! I've been busy. I may be more excited for this film than the superhero one, but I will happily watch just about anything with Ben in it.

Recently we all learned about Affleck's talent to count cards in casinos, which landed him in a bit of trouble. But his co-star in Gone Girl Rosamund Pike just revealed another secret talent of Ben's only this one might be more shocking.

Pike said:

When we first were doing makeup tests I thought, 'This guy could be a standup comedian.' He has characters and impersonations ... accents. He quickly crystallizes you.

"Crystallizes." Wow. I love that use of the word. Rosamund is British so that explains that. Ben Affleck, funny man. I know he's of the awesome variety. There is no denying that I'm a member of his fandom. But impersonations? Accents? Super duper funny stuff, so funny that he could do standup? That's quite a compliment to his talent.

He can make you swoon. And he can make you laugh. He's Batman and he's a funny man. No wonder Jennifer Garner has made babies with the man.

What do you think of Ben's hidden talent? Would you expect him to be that funny?
