BEN AFFLECK (Matt Murdock / Daredevil) most recently starred as the Tom Clancy hero Jack Ryan in "The Sum of All Fears," and in the psychological drama "Changing Lanes" opposite Samuel L. Jackson.

Affleck came to prominence at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, when he starred in Kevin Smith's comedy "Chasing Amy" and Mark Pellington's coming-of-age tale "Going All the Way." He captured an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award in 1998 for his first script, "Good Will Hunting," which he co-wrote with Damon. He segued into big-budget action with "Armageddon," and was among the ensemble cast of the Academy Award winning "Shakespeare in Love." Affleck went on to star in the romantic comedy "Forces of Nature," the fantastical comedy "Dogma," the Wall Street drama "Boiler Room," the suspense thriller "Reindeer Games," the romantic drama "Bounce" and the epic "Pearl Harbor." His other film credits include "Mall Rats," "Cruz," "Dazed and Confused" and "School Ties."

In 2000, Affleck partnered with Matt Damon, Chris Moore and Sean Bailey to form LivePlanet, Inc. Their first endeavor, "Project Greenlight," aired on HBO and drew critical raves for its behind-the-scenes look at the challenges faced by a first-time filmmaker who was chosen from an internet screenwriting contest to make his movie. Affleck and Bailey also co-wrote the innovative drama "Push, Nevada," which aired on ABC in 2002.

Next up for LivePlanet is "Project Greenlight 2," which this time will offer separate opportunities for screenwriters and directors.
