With more than 40 years of career under his belt, Ben Affleck needs no introduction. Now part of the legend of the seventh art, he has had his ups and downs, but this jack of all trades has always been able to bounce back. The star has also gone behind the camera with very conclusive results which even earned him an Oscar for Argo.

While he will be appearing in Aquaman and the Water Kingdom in theaters on December 20, we thought it was a good time to look back on Ben Affleck's career in five major roles.

Let's start this list with the latest feature film. Ben Affleck directed this gem which takes place in 1984 and shows us the true story of Sonny Vaccaro, marketing director at Nike who decides to bet on Michael Jordan.

We enjoy seeing the details of the negotiations and sport behind the scenes in this successful dive into the atmosphere of the eighties. Ben Affleck joins the party playing the role of Phil Knight, the famous founder of Nike.

This jewel by David Fincher is an adaptation of the excellent novel by Gillian Flynn. In this thriller, a woman disappears overnight and suspicion inevitably falls on her husband played by Ben Affleck.

The investigation stirs our brains and, very quickly, doubts appear. Isn’t this a gigantic hoax? Unless this spouse really has something to reproach himself for? We'll let you discover the rest on Netflix.

Kevin Macdonald takes us here in an exciting political thriller. Ben Affleck plays Stephen Collins, a deputy whose assistant has been found dead.

It's the start of a high-risk police investigation that could well reveal dark secrets. The power mechanics are finely dissected, and we ask for more.

In Will Hunting, we find a duo of friends featured: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. They also put their whole heart into this project by writing the screenplay.

Will Hunting is a pure genius who decided to stop his studies. He now spends his life in bars. But then he has an impromptu meeting with a professor from MIT. A coincidence that will turn his destiny upside down.

Ben Affleck gives us a masterpiece with this long- film he directed. He also plays the main role: Tony Mendez, a CIA agent.

This true story returns to the hostage taking that occurred in November 1979 in the American embassy in Tehran. While we are in the middle of the Iranian revolution, these 52 captives try very hard to develop a plan to find a way out.

Of course, Ben Affleck's filmography is so rich that we could also have cited Multiple Mistake, Dogma, or even The Way Back< /em>.
