Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez share many things together as a married couple, but favorite TV shows do not make that list.
Affleck appeared on the Bill Simmons podcast recently with pal and business partner Matt Damon and told the host how his wife loves “Yellowstone.” She’s a big fan of the “romance’’ between Cole Hauser and Kelly Reilly’s characters.
“Jen showed me a clip off of Instagram of a monologue [Reilly] has in the car with the kid about ways to become rich,” Affleck said. “And then [Jennifer] as like, ‘I love the story of these two.’”
“I was like, ‘Wait a minute – with Cole Hauser? What do you love about it?’” Affleck said he asked his wife.
“I’m kind of disturbed by the fact that my wife really likes ‘Yellowstone,’” he jokingly added.
Damon then said he couldn’t believe that Hauser never became a big time movie star. He and Affleck worked with Hauser on 1992’s “School Ties” and the Oscar-winning “Good Will Hunting.”
He has raw talent; just astonishing… and just the sweetest soul,” Damon added.
“I think America believes he is Rip,” Affleck said about Hauser’s performance on the hit tv show.
Damon and Affleck next star in “AIR,” with Affleck also handling directorial duties. The movie focuses on Nike signing Michael Jordan. It hits theaters April 5.
