Ben Affleck Suits Up For Daddy Duty as Jennifer Garner Heads Home
Ben Affleck took his two youngest kids, Seraphina and Samuel, to breakfast in the Brentwood neighborhood of LA today. Ben carried 1-year-old Samuel, who sported a cute Boston Red Sox cap, and held on to Seraphina's hand as they made their way back to the car. Ben was on daddy duty over the weekend since his wife Jennifer Garner was up in Canada for the Toronto International Film Festival. Jennifer hit the red carpet with her Dallas Buyers Club costars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto for the film's premiere on Saturday night, and was spotted touching down in LA yesterday after her quick trip to Toronto.
Ben has been pretty busy with a steady stream of big-screen projects. He'll soon start promoting the gambling drama Runner, Runner with Justin Timberlake before its Oct. 4 release and will likely begin work on the film adaptation of Dennis Lehane's crime novel, Live by Night. (Ben previously took on another of Lehane's books, Gone Baby Gone, in 2007.) While Ben is also starring as the lead character in the Gone Girl movie alongside Rosamund Pike, his most newsworthy recent role is as Batman. It was announced late last month that Ben will play the iconic superhero in the Man of Steel sequel, but the casting news was met with mixed reactions from fans.
