We're glad Ben's hotness exists in this era, because that 1970's shag is not his best look.
Fortunately Affleck is sporting the mop top only because of his next film, Argo, which is set circa 1979. The Oscar winner will play a C.I.A. agent trying to save six Americans trapped in Iran, at the height of the Iranian revolution, by pretending they are a part of his film crew.
The Affleck-directed film is currently shooting in Los Angeles, but will move to Washington, D.C. and Istanbul later this year.
