INTERVIEW: Casey Affleck on ‘Gone, Baby Gone’

 

MoviesOnline recently sat down with Casey Affleck at the Los Angeles press day for his new film, "Gone Baby Gone,” written and directed by Ben Affleck based on the bestselling novel by Dennis Lehane. When a young girl, Amanda (Madeline O’Brien) disappears from her home, a pair of investigators, Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) and Angie Genarro (Michelle Monaghan), search desperately for the child in the streets of Boston. "Gone Baby Gone” also stars Amy Ryan, Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris.  

To play Patrick, Ben Affleck turned to an actor he knew without a doubt understood the rhythm and hue of Boston neighborhoods: his brother Casey, who is having a breakout year, also playing Robert Ford opposite Brad Pitt in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Ben also knew he could push his brother in ways perhaps no one else could. "I know him so well, I know every little tic, and I know when he’s being false and when he’s being true,” says Ben. "And one of the things that’s really exciting for me in this film is to show people a side of Casey they’ve never seen before."
