Ben Affleck - Ben Affleck Tours Istanbul With Mayor

Ben Affleck got a first-class tour of Turkey on Tuesday (02Aug11) after the mayor of Istanbul volunteered to show him the sights.
The Good Will Hunting actor is shooting his upcoming political drama Argo, about the Iran hostage crisis, in Turkey.
He jumped at the chance to get better acquainted with Istanbul after Mayor Mustafa Demir offered to accompany him around the city.
The pair walked around Sultan Ahmet Square, a plaza Affleck scouted as a potential shooting location for Argo, before making a stop at Bilgi University.
He finished the day browsing the Grand Bazaar - the same market where he snapped up an expensive antique rug earlier this year (11).
