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).
