Searching For Ben Affleck
My name is Anthony Terracciano, I'm in the movie Argo, if you've seen it, you've seen me but my name isn't on my performance. Nobody knows it's me because Argo didn't give me a credit at the end of the film, not only that, IMDb won't recognize me for my work in Argo, they won't even list me as an "uncredited" actor in the film. That is why I set out to make this film, I believe Ben Affleck is a good person and when he is made aware of this small injustice that he will intervene and help me get the credit I deserve on IMDb. My friends and I went everywhere trying to get this interview with Ben, we went to movie premieres, parties, restaurants, etc..All in hopes of talking with Ben or meeting someone who will help us get closer to reaching Ben and talking with him about this injustice. As an interesting side-note, not only am I not credited for my performance, I helped choreograph and improvise the scene with Ben Affleck, we rehearsed it four times and got it in three takes. You know, I worked 12 hours on the film Argo that day and I made less than $100, I don't get any residual checks and no one knows it's me. This is a true injustice in the world of Hollywood movie making and when I get my interview with Ben Affleck we will see how he reacts, will he help me get my well deserved credit? Will he not care? Watch the film and find out.

The movie hinges upon one obstacle and that is getting our key interview with Ben Affleck. I don't see this as a problem because Ben knows me from filming Argo together. Remember Ben saw my face everyday for a year while editing the footage of Argo, he will recognize and he will remember me. My opening line to Ben when we find him is "Hi Ben, do you remember me? We had a scene together in Argo..."
Coops I appreciate you taking the time to comment about my project. The trailer to the film is just the tip of the iceberg I assure you. You see this isn't just a story about a Background Actor who ended up on film for a moment that won the Academy Award for Best Picture. I went to an open casting call in Burbank to audition for the part in the movie, they videotaped me, Ben saw it, liked what I did and they contacted me the next day and said "Ben saw your video, he has a really nice part in the movie for you, would you like to do it?". On set that day, Ben took me aside we choreographed what we were going to do on camera, we improvised it, rehearsed it, and shot it in three takes.
When you see the finished movie I think you'll understand.
With all respect
