Ben Affleck had a pretty bad night on Tuesday (April 29). While in Las Vegas with his wife Jennifer Garner, what was meant to be a romantic vacation before he begins his new role as Batman turned into a nightmare straight out of the movie “21.”
TMZ reports that Affleck was caught counting cards and got himself kicked out of the Hard Rock Casino and is now banned for life.
He was playing blackjack at a high rollers’ table when sources say that security — who noticed him counting cards — told Affleck he had been deemed an “advantaged player” and was no longer allowed to play blackjack at the Hard Rock. Security then arranged for a car service to take him back to his hotel.
Affleck is known for being a big blackjack player, but maybe this encounter means his gambling days are over.
While Tuesday was not so good for Affleck, Wednesday (April 30) brought him some better news. HBO announced that Affleck and Matt Damon’s series “Project Greenlight”
is returning to the network
with both Affleck and Damon attached as executive producers. The series, which has been dead for nearly a decade, finds a first-time director and chronicles the process of filmmaking.
