    Default Ben Affleck wants to quit acting

    BEN AFFLECK has warned movie bosses he'll star in the BAYWATCH movie adaptation if they don't give him another directing job. The PEARL HARBOR star is desperate to quit acting so he can concentrate on working behind the camera instead. And he's given producers an ultimatum - either employ him again after seeing his directing talents in forthcoming release GONE, BABY, GONE, or he'll shamelessly take on DAVID HASSELHOFF's role in Baywatch. He tells Hotdog magazine, "I hope that people like the movie enough that they would hire me to direct another movie. "If not, it's strapping on those Speedos, getting on a surfboard and doing the film adaptation of Baywatch." Gone, Baby, Gone is Affleck's second foray into directing - his debut was 1993's I KILLED MY LESBIAN WIFE, HUNG HER ON A MEAT HOOK, AND NOW I HAVE A THREE-PICTURE DEAL AT DISNEY.

    Does anyone give a shit about Ben Affleck enough anymore that crappy threats like this would work?

    By all means, quit!

    They are making a movie based on Baywatch?! Hollywood is really hard pressed for ideas, aren't they?

    "...his debut was 1993's I KILLED MY LESBIAN WIFE, HUNG HER ON A MEAT HOOK, AND NOW I HAVE A THREE-PICTURE DEAL AT DISNEY."

    Oh, my God, I thought this was some sort of bad joke, but I looked it up on IMDB, and it's true. So, he's basing his asshat demand on an unreleased flick and the aforementioned, undoubtedly gem-like piece of celluloid.

    What acting? I never thought he was all that good.

    My fondness for Kevin Smith movies renders me unable to make fun of someone who will always be Holden McNeil and Bartleby to me no matter how many shit movies he makes.

    Now, had he stopped with being Shannon Hamilton in Mallrats, I would have no problem pointing out that playing David Hasseloff wouldn't be a step down in all parts of the world. The ones that saw Gigli.

    I would rather have him take care of his new family-- besides Good Will Hunting, nothing he acted in ticked my boxes.

    Ben Affleck wants to quit acting
    Please, please, please do it, Ben!!!!
    (It's not like he really even has an "acting career" to quit, at this point. I can't even think of his last movie!--Not that i'd want to; bringing to mind his ugly mug & cringe-inducing wooden acting would only make me wince & feel nauseous.)
