The American actor plays Christian Wolff, a small town
accountant who secretly keeps the books for some of the world’s
most dangerous criminal organizations.
"This is a great movie. It’s very original, very fresh. I loved
the concept and the character, so the whole thing was a lot of
fun," Affleck told Reuters at the premiere.
Affleck’s co-stars include Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, J.K.
Simmons and Cynthia Addai-Robinson.
Addai-Robinson said Affleck's role showed that "somebody that's
comfortable with numbers can also be sexy and own their
profession. You've got to give a movie for the accountants out
there so they can have their hero moments as well."
The film is scheduled for release on Friday.
