Ben Affleck's Buffy line was dubbed
Ben Affleck's one line in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' was dubbed.
The 'Way Back' star appeared in the 1992 cult movie, in which he played Basketball Player #10, and whilst he thought he did a good job of one of his lines, the director Fran Rubel Kuzui decided to dub his voice.
Speaking on Sirius XM's The Jess Cagle Show, he said: "That movie ... I was ... apparently I'm so bad, I had one line. It was, 'Take it,' I think. I'm holding a basketball, another basketball player turns into like a werewolf or whatever, and I get scared, naturally, as you might when you're playing basketball and you see a werewolf. I give him the ball and I think I say, 'Take it, man,' and I thought it was fine, and the director seemed happy. When I went to see the movie - I did not get premiere tickets or anything - I realised, 'That is not my voice.' Apparently the director hated my performance so much, that she looped the entire performance, which was one line. I was dubbed in English, usually you do that if maybe they're speaking a different language. Thank you for bringing that memory up."
Meanwhile, the 47-year-old actor previously credited his new movie 'The Way Back' for helping him to rekindle his love of acting.
He said: "For me, I just looked at it as a great acting opportunity and a return to doing something I really love. Seeing their [his young co-stars including Charles Lott Jr. and Melvin Gregg] passion, their love, their commitment to it, really rekindled a joy for me in this process."
