Not many actors get to show the range that Casey Affleck (Ocean's Thirteen, Good Will Hunting) unveils in two very different films: an elegiac western, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and the dour urban tale, Gone Baby Gone. He reflects on traveling those distances.

Elvis talks to Casey about working with director Andrew Dominik on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and how the character of Robert Ford contrasts with that of Jesse James. He also discusses Gone Baby Gone, directed by his brother Ben, and the conflicts his character faces, both in terms of his life in Boston and the controversial decision he makes regarding the missing child in the movie.
