Ben Affleck and Matt Damon: The Lives and Times

It's kind of funny how a partnership between two people can go on to define those people long after the partnership ends. Look at Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Friends who wrote a movie together which won them an Oscar. The have appeared only around a half dozen movies together, but they are still viewed as parts on a whole on some level.

This week we look at the parallel careers of Damon and Affleck and see if we can figure out how they ended up in such similar, but different, places in the film world.
