Profile Bio Text
Casey Affleck (born August 12, 1975) is an Academy Award-, SAG Award- and Golden Globe-nominated American actor and the younger brother of actor-director-writer Ben Affleck. Affleck was born Caleb Casey Affleck-Boldt in Falmouth, Massachusetts, the son of Chris Ann (née Boldt), a school district employee and teacher, and Timothy Affleck, a drug counselor, social worker, janitor, auto mechanic, bartender, and former actor with the Theater Company of Boston. As a child he had numerous pets, including cats, snakes, guinea pigs and turtles. Affleck went to George Washington University, later transferring to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in physics, astronomy, and Western philosophy.
Career Affleck`s first movie role was as a sociopathic teenager in Gus Van Sant`s 1995 dark comedy To Die For, alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Nicole Kidman. After starring the following year in the box office flop Race the Sun (co-starring Halle Berry), he appeared in two films featuring older brother Ben Affleck: Chasing Amy and Good Will Hunting. The latter was a major hit and jump-started the careers of Matt Damon and the Affleck brothers. Ben Affleck and Damon went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Affleck then starred in the underground movie Desert Blue, a film which met with limited success, but also featured rising star Kate Hudson. He took time off from acting before playing another role.
After establishing his movie career, Affleck turned to screenwriting, teaming up with Matt Damon to write the 2002 film Gerry about two friends who get lost while hiking in the desert, directed by Van Sant. Affleck also starred in the film The Last Kiss as a friend of Zach Braff`s character and made a cameo in the Joaquin Phoenix-directed video "Tired of Being Sorry" for Balthazar Getty`s band Ringside. In 2007, he starred in the Western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, playing Robert Ford to Brad Pitt`s Jesse James. For this role he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture at the 65th Golden Globe Awards and an Oscar nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role at the 80th Academy Awards. He also starred in the critically acclaimed Gone Baby Gone in which he appeared as the main protagonist, Patrick Kenzie. The movie was directed by his brother, Ben Affleck. In April 2008, director Ridley Scott had announced his new project The Kind One, a period noir drama set for release in 2010. Affleck has been cast in the lead role.
