Believe it or not, Ben Affleck has been in show business most of his life.
As the 44-year-old Accountant actor told Jimmy Fallon on NBC's The Tonight Show Thursday, "I did do some child acting. Luckily I didn't end up on a show and get famous and go on crack and get crazy. I had a normal childhood. My mother let me go do this thing and then forced me to come home. It was a PBS series called Voyage of the Mimi. It was for kids. Educational, kind of."
"You're laughing, but it's not a joke! It combined science and math topics with an interesting adventure that a young man took with scientists," Affleck said. "I still feel like I have to pitch it!"
In hindsight, Affleck said, "It was a lot of fun. We had a good time."
The 13-episode series aired in 1984, and 30 years later, it was released digitally via iTunes U.
