Re: Abrams Directing Star Wars
I'll go against the grain and say I think Ben Affleck is a good director. He gets a ton of crap for bad films he's acted in during his career and the whole "Bennifer" tabloid relationship but his directorial catalogue is actually solid and the films are pretty good. I think his real talent lay in directing films and not acting in them, so if a guy like Ben ever gets the nod to helm a major franchise film like Trek or Wars I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.
