Comedies Only for Affleck

No more action for Ben: Ben Affleck has declared he never wants to star in a high-action movie ever again.

Affleck, former fiance of Jennifer Lopez, has branched out into comedy with his latest movie Surviving Christmas, and he insists he has no desire to revisit the tough-guy persona he adapted for roles in such films as Armageddon and Paycheck.

He says, "I don't want to hold a gun in a movie or blow anything up ever again. I'm bored of those other kinds of movies. There's some irony to the fact that I want to do comedies and all these actors who already do comedies keep asking, 'When am I going to get to do my big serious thing?'"

1 Now see, I thought he was great in Sum of all Fears. It's all about the pictures you choose...although he can be incredibly funny too, like he is every time he visits Saturday Night Live. As far as dramatic roles, who can ever forget Ben as the disenchanted single teenage father in the telepic "Daddy", based on the Danielle Steel novel? LOL.

2 I could say something crude about his, "big, serious thing," but I'll let it pass.

3 They say that Surviving Christmas is not very good, but it looks really funny to me. He was a HOOT on SNL
