  • I love Movies & the art of Acting but I Never really Remember actors Names, Just their faces... Swear I never knew this Was Ben Afflecks brother 🤦🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️. I watched this because I know his Face & respect his skill level in everything I’ve seen him in. My favorite movie is Reindeer Games randomly...

    • @Andreas Persson So no, it's believe only the women who align with your narrative then. Two DIFFERENT brave women came forth with their stories of Casey's s3xual haris-ment, something that generally doesn't have hard evidence, especially when the pred-a-tor ensures the victims are alone. Just because he "made a couple good movies" doesn't give him unfettered access to his female co-stars bodies. Truly sickening.
