Ben Affleck and Life After Batman in 2020

Plus: Bill Simmons on ‘The Invisible Man’

Warner Bros.

As his new drama, The Way Back, nears release, Ben Affleck is back in the spotlight and opening up about his struggles with substance misuse. It’s the latest in a career that has collided the personal with the artistic in a way few writer-director-actors can claim. Sean and Amanda talk through Affleck’s series of comebacks, his utterly unique brand of stardom, and the last decade of self-reflexive roles in movies both mega-successful and widely reviled (1:08). Then, Bill Simmons swings by to pick some nits in the weekend’s box office champ, The Invisible Man (48:51).
