Ben Affleck, the star and director of this week's new movie The Town, is near and dear to my heart. A personal heartthrob since his Good Will Hunting days, Affleck has had his career ups and downs, but currently I think he's riding high, as he's proving himself as a capable auteur of heavyweight dramas. So in his honor, I'd love to direct you to one of his very first highs. 12 year-old Affleck plays host for The Voyage of the Mimi, an educational PBS series. Note the amazing bowl cut and sweet, eager-to-please demeanor. Watch and try not to squeal too much, will you?
