Affleck to Join Mike Judge Comedy Extract
Posted 08.21.08 by reelz
Variety reports that Ben Affleck is in negotiations to play an ambulance-chasing lawyer in Mike Judge's next comedy, Extract.
The actor-director would join star Jason Bateman and supporting players Clifton Collins Jr., Kristen Wiig, and Mila Kunis.
In Extract, Batemen plays the owner of a flower-extract factory that has had a run of bad luck. His wife is also cheating on him with a gigolo.
Extract is a Miramax production. After two botched releases with Fox Searchlight, Office Space and Idiocracy -- both of which reached cult status success on home video -- let's hope Judge finally gets a theater hit.
