Ben Affleck adding new cast to his next film, Argo

Ben Affleck hasn’t had a miss as a director yet, with two excellent films in Gone Baby Gone and The Town. He’s steadily adding cast to what sounds like it could be another brilliant piece, Argo.

Based on a true story about a CIA team who posed as a science-fiction film crew to rescue Americans in Iran in 1979, chronicled in this Wired article, Variety is reporting that he has added a lot of talent to the film. Taylor Schilling (The Lucky One) is on as the wife of Affleck, who is playing the leader of the CIA team.

Also signed on are Tate Donovan and Nelson Franklin, as a US Consul officer and a reporter, respectively.
