Ben Affleck's Beard Star of New Argo Still

by at . Comments

As Warner Bros. rolled out their 2012 preview kit, Movie Fanatic has brought you new photos from Gangster Squad and The Dark Knight Rises. Today we have a pic of Ben Affleck from his next directorial feature, Argo.

Ben Affleck in Argo

Argo is a drama about the plot to rescue the Americans held at our country’s embassy in 1979 in Tehran, Iran.

What strikes us most about the new Argo still is, honestly, his beard. Now, beards appear to be making a comeback across the world, but they’re not as shaggy as Ben’s is in this still. There’s something very 1970s about it, no?!

We’re quite excited about Affleck’s next directing venture after his incredible work on The Town and Gone Baby Gone. Warner Bros. must have high hopes for the picture as well. It is being released in the midst of 2012’s Oscar season, on September 14.
