Ben Affleck Reveals His Buffy the Vampire Slayer Role Was Dubbed Over

Ben Affleck has been a staple in pop culture ever since his first breakout role in Dazed and Confused back in 1993 and then had his first leading role in Glory Daze back in 1997. Affleck would go on to play numerous roles like Marvel’s Daredevil and even Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But there was one movie that fans didn’t notice that Affleck was in and that was the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie. Affleck plays a background actor in the movie who’s a basketball player while they’re trying to kill a character. In a new interview with Uproxx, the actor reveals that his voice was actually dubbed over in the film.

“I got one line … it was for a basketball player. I was feeling it. I felt authentically afraid. And then I went and saw the movie with friends … and I sounded very different. And I realized right then they re-recorded my line. I was so bad,” Affleck revealed. “They needed me to be in the scene, but the director [Fran Rubel Kuzui] obviously [was like], ‘I can’t hear the voice again!’ They had to pay someone to come in and say, ‘Hey man, take it.’ Because apparently, I couldn’t say that convincingly enough.”

Ben Affleck’s Next Movie is The Flash

Warner Bros. describes the film as follows: “Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?”

What’s Happening at DC Studios?

Gunn and Safran began their jobs as Co-CEO’s of DC Studios last year and it’s safe to say that the future of DC is looking bright. When the duo was announced by the new Warner Bros. Discovery boss, they released a statement on their excitement for the job.

“We’re honored to be the stewards of these DC characters we’ve loved since we were children,” Gunn and Safran added in a joint statement. “We look forward to collaborating with the most talented writers, directors, and actors in the world to create an integrated, multilayered universe that still allows for the individual expression of the artists involved. Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the DC stable of characters is only equaled by our commitment to the wonder of human possibility these characters represent. We’re excited to invigorate the theatrical experience around the world as we tell some of the biggest, most beautiful, and grandest stories ever told.”

The Flash hits theaters on June 16th!
