"I'm very excited for him," Affleck, who costars with J.T. in the upcoming Runner Runner, told me at tonight's Hollywood Film Awards at The Beverly Hilton.
"He's a terrific guy," he continued. "He's a really good actor. There's nothing that guy can't do."
Affleck added with a smile, "Jess is great. I'm happy for them."
