Q: Do you have any good casting stories?
KS: Ben and Jason have been in 6 of the 7 movies I’ve made so that was a no-brainer. Matt Damon was going to be in it, but he was tied up with a Robert DeNiro movie so he couldn’t do it so I called Jason and he was nice enough to make time for this in his very busy My Name is Earl schedule.
His daughter Violet was otherwise engaged, but Ben Affleck got the next best thing on July 7 - a visit from Matt Damon and his baby daughter Isabella on the Quincy, Mass. set of the thriller (and Affleck directorial debut) Gone, Baby, Gone.
