What could Ben Affleck possibly say or do to get banned for life from anywhere?
First, San Diego Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA by the commissioner for racist comments caught on tape by his mistress.
Now it’s been revealed that none other than movie star and Oscar-winner Ben Afleck has been banned for life from playing Blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas for… counting cards? Wait – what?
That’s right – according to Variety, here’s how it all went down:
Affleck, who played in the World Series of Poker alongside buddy Matt Damon, allegedly was playing blackjack at the casino’s high rollers table earlier this week when the Hard Rock security team caught the actor on camera counting cards.
The actor, according to unnamed source, was told, “You’re too good at this game” by hotel security and deemed an advantage player.
One unnamed source said the hotel was friendly to Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner and invited them back to the casino to play other games.
Affleck, whose reps could not be reached for comment, is set to begin filming the untitled Batman-Superman feature in Detroit later this month.
… They’ll take his money – they just don’t want him taking their’s I guess.
