Casey Affleck - "The Assassination of Jesse James" vs "Gone Baby Gone"
I'm doubly impressed with these two films featuring Casey Affleck. I would say that these two films put him in a leading position, as opposed to his supporting roles in Ocean's Eleven and its sequels. Yes, he was a lead in other (independent) films, but none of them really match what he accomplished with these two films from 2007.
What a stellar year for this young man. But which of the two did you feel was the best performance? I'd be hard-pressed to pick just one. Apparently, the Academy Awards people were able to, and they picked The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, an Oscar-nomination for young Affleck (in a supporting role, but we all know it was pretty much a lead).
I'm-a one, I'm-a one, the one they call Buttmunker.
