ben affleck brentwood country mart seraphina coffee scarf sunglasses purse

On Thursday morning Ben Affleck and wifey Jennifer Garner stopped by Brentwood Country Mart for a cup of coffee (well, for him anyway) after they dropped their little girls off at school.

In between awards shows this winter we've snapped Ben spending lots of time with his three children, but come this spring he's going to be spending a lot of time out of the house working on new film projects.

He'll begin production on the untitled Whitey Bulger movie with pal Matt Damon in Boston, and last month he announced that he was backing out of Focus with Kristen Stewart, but he confirmed that he will be directing and starring in Live By Night, which is also set in Boston. The flick, which is based on Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name, is a Prohibition-era tale of a policeman’s son who "takes to life as a liquor outlaw, which eventually leads him to Florida, Cuba, and the depths of crime." Sounds fascinating!
