He became known in the mid-1990s with his performance in the Kevin Smith films Mallrats (1995) and Chasing Amy (1997).

He established himself as a Hollywood leading man, having starred in several big budget films, such as Armageddon (1998), Pearl Harbor (2001), Changing Lanes (2002), The Sum of All Fears (2002), and Daredevil (2003).

Affleck has drawn critical acclaim for his work as a filmmaker, directing Gone Baby Gone (2007) and The Town (2010), and playing the lead role in the latter. He has worked with his younger brother, actor Casey Affleck, on several projects, including Good Will Hunting and Gone Baby Gone.
