Affleck and Thurman Interview

In this internet exclusive, Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman talk at length about their roles in the film Paycheck, due for release on January 16th.

Based on the short story by Philip K. Dick, "Paycheck" is about world famous genius Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck), who does specialized projects for high-tech corporations. Once a job is complete, his memory is erased so as not to divulge any company secrets.

BEN AFFLECK (Michael Jennings) came to prominence at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, when he starred in Kevin Smith’s comedy “Chasing Amy” and Mark Pellington’s coming-of-age tale “Going All the Way.” He captured an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award in 1998 for his first script, “Good Will Hunting,” which he co-wrote with Matt Damon. He segued into big-budget action with “Armageddon,” and was among the ensemble cast of the Academy Award-winning “Shakespeare in Love.”

In 2000, Affleck partnered with Matt Damon, Chris Moore and Sean Bailey to form Live Planet, Inc. Their first endeavor, “Project Greenlight,” aired on HBO and drew critical raves for its behind-the-scenes look at the challenges faced by a first-time filmmaker. The second season of “Project Greenlight” aired on HBO at the beginning of June 2003. Affleck and Bailey also co-wrote the innovative drama “Push, Nevada,” which aired on ABC in the fall of 2002.

UMA THURMAN (Rachel Porter) has proven herself to be one of the most versatile young actresses by playing a variety of compelling characters. The daughter of a psychologist and a college professor, Thurman was raised in Amherst, Massachusetts, and Woodstock, New York. She attended a preparatory school in New England, where at 15, she was discovered by two New York agents. At 16, she transferred to the Professional Children’s School in New York City in order to pursue an acting career.

Thurman has starred in numerous films during her career although her most notable to date has to be the Tarantino hit film “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” and will next be seen in the sequel, “Kill Bill Vol. 2.”
