Ben Affleck is a huge force in Hollywood. Affleck is married to Jennifer Garner, an equally big force on the celebrity scene. Fans have been following him for years and many have grown to love him as both an actor and a person. Blackjack seems to be something he enjoys, but that is about to change. According to a May 2 report from TMZ, Ben Affleck has been permanently banned from the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Security allegedly caught Affleck counting cards and escorted him out earlier this week.

Blackjack has been a part of Ben Affleck's life for several years. He is a known card shark in Hollywood. In 2001, Affleck won $800,000 by playing three $20,000 Blackjack hands. Ironically he won the money at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas where he was just recently banned. This is a big deal for someone of Affleck's caliber.

The trip to Las Vegas was supposed to be a romantic getaway for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Affleck is set to head to Detroit soon to begin filming the new Batman movie. While there are some definite critics wondering about his ability to pull the role off, many of his fans are excited to see what he has to offer. Affleck has plenty of talent to put forth as Batman.

There has yet to be a comment made by Ben Affleck regarding the Hard Rock Casino incident, but fans don't expect him to speak out. If Affleck wants to play Blackjack that badly, there are several other places he can go to instead. The focus right now is spending time with Jennifer Garner and their children before he leaves to film Batman. Fans are excited to see what the movie will be like and how well Affleck can pull off the starring role. Right now there is no release date noted for the movie.
