Ben Affleck Replaces Tom Cruise in 'Nathan Decker'

Ben Affleck holds hands with wife Jennifer Garner on Friday (March 30) in Brentwood, Calif.

The day before, the 39-year-old actress stopped by Star Toys and left the toy shop with a few items.

Ben is reportedly set to star in the political comedy Nathan Decker.

The movie – which previously had Tom Cruise as its probable lead actor – “centers on a politician who is caught in an affair and returns to his hometown to confront his past,” according to THR.

  • ahhh

    I wonder when she has time for her babies because I can only see her “running some errands” around the city. Go back home, your newborn baby needs you more than paps.

    BTW the role of Decker was offered to Tom but he decided to do
    His science fiction movie instead ! And there is no director or cast
    So why would Tom take this movie…so there was no Replacement
    Because Tom never accepted the role he has too many movies to
    Film! When you see Jen and her Nanny out shopping wonder who
    Is taking care of Samuel! ….. Doubt he is going to take the role
    Just like Great Gatsby he got offered that role and turned it Down
    So I can see it now he rejects this one too

  • PG

    Poor guy has that same sedated going through the motions look.

  • Roz

    I love them! Such a sweet and loving couple! ♥ I love Ben’s style, everyone should be able to look the way they want, after all is their problem. I’m sorry to bring this up but when Ben was with J.lo he changed a lot, right now he is the way he wants to be, if he’s happy fine for me then.

    paps have to leave that family alone. show some respect and human decency and let them live their lives and raise their kids in peace. Please.

  • alishia

    Hey Marc Anthony both of you have upgraded ..but Jlo. Will be in Ben’s
    Comment page for ever so be so lucky! Here he is married to the REAL
    Woman of his dreams for 7 years, but someone in the comment page
    Has to come out and compare Jen to Jlo….she was marrried to Marc
    For 6 years. Jlo. and went back to a backup dancer just like Chris
    Judd before Ben!

    As for the movie finally a role that a great role Tom. Cruise was too
    Busy and schedule problems he has 3 more movies to film! Let’s
    Hope he takes this role…

  • Daddy

    Jen is so adorable and cute, Ben, on the other hand has legs shaped like parenthesis.

  • ellie’

    beautiful couple great they have each other…So looking forward to seeing another happy baby

  • Karen

    Jen is a great wife and mom and deserves to be treated well. l She is really an upgrade for Ben for she is willing to put up with all his short comings.

  • Joe Blow

    Sorry Jared, they were not running errands but had a meeting at Violet’s school. Thank for the pics of my favorite celeb couple just the same.

  • inoticed

    jesus has been chosen to play Nathan Decker LOLOLOL.

  • @Sonia

    I predict a flop or a low budget movie with Ben Affleck.

    When was the last time Affleck had a movie that made MORE than 200M worldwide in a lead role? over 10 years ago.
    When was the last time a movie with Cruise, in a lead role, made LESS than 200M worldwide? over 10 years ago. Good he rejected this garbage.

    Note to Sonia: Tom Cruise has been on the Forbes list of most over-paid actors for about 5 years now. His last Mission:Impossible movie did very well, but the others,not too good. The sun is setting on his career.

  • WB

    Too bad. It turned from a political thriller that people will wonder if Cruise could pull off, to an unwatchable piece of trash that no one will even try to watch. Not a good casting move. Next, Affleck, Stiller, Sandler and Pauly Shore will do a buddy movie called “Please Watch Us”!

  • kelly

    @ Sonia The Town made over 150 thousand worldwide on 35 thousand budget .I would say that is a big accomplishment.I bet his next movie is going to be even bigger.It’s already on critics next big flim to be nominated for an Oscar.
    Tom who? He was the the sh@t back in the 80s but now his long in the tooth and desperately hanging on to his youth.Which is probably why he didn’t accept the role .They wanted someone younger and funnier

    Kelly: You’re right – Tom Cruise is Not funny(he can’t handle comedy.)

  • ewwwwwww

    He needs to get rid of the rug, and why hasn’t she given birth yet…she must be having twins she is so fat. She must be eating her food plus her kids food because one her daughter s is like a little skeleton..the unfortunate looking one…actually they both are unfortunate looking. They call the paps wherever they go cuz they sure are not that cute!!!! Angelina and Brad they are not lmao.

  • Ann

    my favorite couple!
