The Directors: Ben Affleck on Working with Casey Affleck

Gus Van Sant and Ben Affleck share what it is like working family members. Ben directed his brother Casey on Gone Baby Gone and shared a moment when he was filming, "What ever your instincts are follow that and we'll just go from there. We start to shoot, my brother goes in to another room and everyone is filming an empty hallway. Nothing is happening and we are like 'what are you doing?' 'Don't walk in to an empty room where no one can see you.' It was tough but I cast him because he is a great actor" said Ben.
