Compared to past veep debates, Affleck has high hopes for Thursday night. The Hollywood star said the 2000 vice presidential debate between Republican Dick Cheney and then Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) did not stir fond memories for the actor.
“Nothing could have been more boring” Affleck said of that debate.
Affleck was in Washington, D.C., promoting his new movie "Argo," which he both directed and starred in. The film opens Oct. 12.
