X17 photographers snapped Ben Affleck on his way to a business meeting in Santa Monica on Monday, and the hunky father of three flashed us a sexy smile from across the parking lot. Um, swoon!

Ben will be busy for the next few months with two back to back projects: First he's set to star as the male lead in David Fincher's new film, Gone Girl, in which Rosamund Pike was just cast as the female lead. The film is based on the best-selling novel of the same name about a woman who mysteriously disappears on the day of her wedding anniversary, and the husband (Affleck) is suspected to be the killer.

Ben will reportedly complete work on this film before Live by Night, which he will direct and star in. Oh, and Ben wrote the screenplay for that film as well, so maybe he'll finally get that Best Director Oscar by 2015? Here's to hoping!
