Ben Affleck Freaks The Hell Out In Unearthed After School Special (VIDEO)

We spend a lot of time scouring the internet looking for fun stuff for you guys. So I'm almost embarrassed that, before today, I had never seen this gem. This glorious piece of internet gold. This...clip of a fat Ben Affleck in something called "Body To Die For," which apparently was an awful (awesome) HBO show from the 90s.

You need no context to enjoy this. Just a desire to see Affleck freak out when his girlfriend finds his steroid stash. And don't be fooled by the subtly of his performance -- you can see how angry and complex his character is when he punches his girlfriend in her face and then proceeds to bang his shoulder on the carpet like an insane person. I bet if I saw this in health class as a kid, I would've been uncomfortable. Little would I have known I was watching a master at work.

It's too bad this has never really seen the light of day, too. Thousands of aspiring actors missed out on the chance to show up to an audition and say, "I'll be performing the Ben Affleck scene from 'Body To Die For.'" And that's a shame. Because this is acting. This is why he's a star.
