Ben looking for actors

Ben Affleck is looking for two actors to take the leading roles in his big screen directorial debut.

Affleck is adapting Dennis Lehane's best-selling book Gone, Baby Gone into a screenplay, as well as directing.

He bought the rights to kidnap mystery novel in 2002 reports

Affleck has only filled the supporting roles, he said: "To me, I feel like the supporting actors are the most important. You're only as strong as the weakest link. I'm going to fill the supporting roles before going for the protagonist."

He will shoot the movie in Boston, Massachusetts, this autumn.
