Ben told Kimmel how he cares about Samuel Garner, his son who is obsessed with Star Wars since he was young. All of the movies his parents acted in were pretentious, except Star Wars, which he believed was taking place is a different universe. Samuel is also a huge fan of Adam Driver, Kylo Ren in the movie Star Wars
Initially, Samuel find it hard to believe when he learned that his father knew Adam personally- Affleck and Driver were both in the upcoming movie the new Ridley Scott film ‘The Last Duel’.
When he returned home to Los Angeles just in time for his surprise party, he realized that none of the presents had arrived.
“It was like this sinking, awful feeling,”
Luckily, Adam saved the day! He sent Affleck’s son a present using a signed picture of him and filmed a birthday message in his Star Wars character.
“I said, ‘Son, my presents didn’t get here on time. But I did get a present from somebody who really wanted it make sure you had a gift’.”
Ben thanked the Star Wars actor for saving his son’s birthday.
“It was an incredibly moving and powerful moment. Adam made me a hero to my kid – how do you repay that?”
“It meant the f**king world to me”.
Meanwhile, his newest drama ‘The Way Back’ as Jack Cunningham is set to release on March 6 across the United States. The sports drama film also stars Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins and Janina Gavankar.
