Casey Affleck’s acting career has spanned 25 years, but his Academy Award nominated role in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” garnered him wider and critical acclaim for his performance. Casey’s also well-known for his role in the ensemble cast of the “Ocean’s Eleven” series as well as starring with older brother, Ben Affleck, in such hits as “Chasing Amy” and “Good Will Hunting.” He’s married to Summer Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s sister) and has two sons.

A special thank you to our participating theaters, Relativity and Technicolor for their continued support of our summer fundraising campaign!
