Ben Affleck, Benjamin Geza Affleck Boldt was born on 5 August 1972 at Berkeley, California. An actor, screenwriter, and producer who is widely known as one of the most prominent actors of Hollywood. He aced the roles in action, drama, and comedy films alike. 

EARLY LIFE AND CAREER

After his birth, his family moved to Cambridge Massachusetts. His mother, Chris Affleck was an Irish woman and worked as a school teacher. On the other hand, his father Tim Affleck worked as a bartender, a mechanic, and even a janitor at Harvard University. His father’s work inspired many parts of Ben’s film “Good Will Hunting.” 

Ben’s parents separated soon after his birth and got divorced before his 12th birthday.

Affleck’s acting started at the age of seven when he starred in “The Dark End of the Street” in 1979 that was produced by a family friend, he also worked in Burger King Commercials during that time. Later in 1984 when he was 8 years old, he got featured in a TV series “The Voyage of Mimi.”

The same year he met his future best friend, Matt Damon who lived just a street away, with whom he took drama classes together. To this day, both of them are still best friends and work in film projects on and off.

Five years later in 1993, Ben was cast in “Dazed and Confused” in which he played the role of a bully.  He then landed the roles in independent films as Kevin Smith’s “Mallrats” in 1995 and “Chasing Amy” in 1995. Both of these films received a commendable appreciation at Sundance Festival. 

The ups and downs in films left the two friends in distress as they were given the supporting roles rather than big main roles. They took the break and started working on writing the script so they can have their own work.

Good Will Hunting; the career kick starter

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/FWwhFm03qhhwQAR49ZNMIH7P5ZZ0JKke1xamM2u_0rGducvFtg9eJhl-g0C3uGxTo7lEzIHHhuX9-YVd26FhZCflTz3uYFN1TYS_Upq6esJvXdyzeo-SsrN07Vhdfh3SoNOBWpc

In 1997, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon finished their first script for “Good Will Hunting ” and handed it to their agent Patrick Whitesell who showed their script to some Hollywood studios. Their hope was getting down as they first did not get the response over the control on the project they are hoping for.  Finally, Miramax took the script and gave them the control they were looking for. That year brought so much luck to them as in that year Good Will hunting was released and turned their names from unknowns to famous names. 

The Film managed to get one academy award out of nine nominations, which was mainly for best writing, screenplay written for the screen. They sold their script for unknown reasons in 1997 for $600000.

SAMUEL L. JACKSON

Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most acclaimed actors in the Hollywood industry. He was born on 21 December 1948 at Washington DC. With more than 100 films in his career list; he is still winning the hearts of people.

EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/ORYASwdE1FrdsOmU2rCfOfYgPdFg9Y3KO3btys2gVC-fu0aAO-SKA1TTjsVzoKnkYBVE8oinsOxbQl6hyV9SpVu2csK-0_JOVfwTX1UtP98BiJYy7usaKdqD0pMi7Cq24dh8xx4

Samuel Leroy Jackson was raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee by his grandmother. His mother joined him when he was 10 as his father lived far from them and afterward died due to alcoholism. He only met his father twice in his life.  He studied in multiple schools and graduated from ‘Riverside High School’ in Chattanooga. He suffered from stammering in early childhood. In high school, he used to play French horn and trumpet in the school orchestra.

He was a film enthusiast and used to see movies at the local theatre and gained an insight into the complex narrative surrounding the black presence on screen. Band of Angels was edited for the black audience in Chattanooga, especially cutting the scene where Sidney Poitier slaps a white woman.

Initially, he was interested in getting a degree in marine biology from Morehouse College Atlanta, but later on, he chose to have a degree that will help him in pursuing his dream of becoming an actor. His experiences were part of him when he entered the historical Morehouse College and started to take a stand for the black-power movement. In 1969, he protested against the fact that there was no black board-member and then locked board members in the building for two days. That results in the immediate expulsion of Samuel L. Jackson from the college.

That same year, he got the chance to watch the performance of Negro Ensemble Company and make his passion for becoming an actor more firm. After spending two years in Los Angeles as a social worker, he returned to his previous college “Morehouse’ college and then graduated in 1972, and meanwhile, he also co-founded a theatre group named ‘Just Us Theatre.’

CAREER TIMELINE

THEATRE WORK & INITIAL FILMS

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/SCAV_OXAlcTZACIKHsB7Gc8JAr4qPVbDrOv417v8Z0VoFz2AopgPsCuO8N_HUG7KAhOPEnb6NUjFR_b1V9krWaRJ7oTyUxSVx8u5asJIX8U_-1IGTvBFH5KyCQ_-unrMmxxFQts

After he got graduated, Jackson joined hands with Black Image Theatre Company with La Tanya Richardson, whom he met at Spellman College, a branch of Morehouse School. They traveled throughout the country and performed skits composed of a vigorous combination of fierceness and humor in essence to white people. After starring in various plays including ‘The Three penny Opera’, ‘A Soldier’s Play’; he kick started his motion picture debut in “Together for Days’ in 1972. Four years later, he shared the screen in television series ‘Moving On.’

In 1976, he decided to discontinue politically influenced theatre work. Then, Jackson moved with Richardson to Harlem, New York City to pursue his acting career outside the confinement of race and ethnicity. He started to act in Off-Broadway productions that include Richard Wesley’s The Mighty Gents; that was based on Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Sam-Art Williams home. He also got the chance to substitute Bill Cosby during The Cosby Show rehearsals. In 1977, he played the role in the film ‘The Displaced Person’.

In 1981, when he was working on Charles Fuller’s A Soldier Play, he encountered two life-changing situations. First, he met Morgan Freeman who became a great friend of Jackson and pushed him to become a successful actor. And the other one, the New York University Film Student Spike Lee got impressed by his performances and urged him to work in his debut movies. Samuel fulfills his promise and starred in Lee’s early films as “School Daze’ and “Do the Right Thing’, releasing correspondingly in 1988 and 1989.

The Friendship really spiked Jackson’s career as it was his role as a drug-addict in Lee’s ‘Jungle Fever’ that received huge appraisal for the performance. The judges at the Cannes film festival even created a new category ‘Best Supporting actor’ to give the award to Samuel L. Jackson. He got New York Film critics award too, through the streak of playing drug-addicts on-screen; he then had to deal with his disastrous addiction to alcohol and drugs.

The show was aired in the same year. She was a single mom as the father of the baby, Derek Underwood died in a tragic car accident.
