Ben Affleck, 48, turned heads on Apr. 13 when he was seen walking and hugging George Clooney, 59, on the set of their upcoming film The Tender Bar. At one point, before they left the set, they were seen filming a fun scene that involved loading actor Max Casella‘s car with cases of beer.
The actor was dressed in character with a gray polo shirt, jeans, and some vintage sunglasses as he walked beside his co-star, who was wearing a black polo shirt, jeans, and a white face mask, and eventually embraced him to say goodbye. It was the last day on the set in Ipswich, Massachusetts and both men were near a light blue classic convertible during the sighting.
The Tender Bar is based on the 2005 memoir of the same name by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer JR Moehringer. It’s about the author and his early years in New York City as he searches for his father and grows close to his uncle and some locals at a nearby bar. Other famous actors involved include Christopher Lloyd, Tye Sheridan, and Lily Rabe.
Before The Tender Bar, which was filmed at various locations around Boston, Ben Affleck and George worked on the 2012 film Argo together, so they’re definitely not strangers. Earlier this month, they were spotted playing softball on the set.
