"He is so magical and such a gentleman" - Ben Affleck proclaims his love for Brendan Gleeson

Batman loves Brendan...

When he's not busy donning a cowl and cape to become the Caped Crusader, Ben Affleck is balancing bank accounts and beating up badguys in his brand new cinematic release, The Accountant.

The Accountant 2

Ahead of the film's release on 4 November, Eoghan Doherty met up with Ben (that's right, Eoghan foolishly thinks he's on first-name terms with Mr Affleck after spraying aftershave on the sometime superhero earlier this year) and his delightfully friendly co-star, Anna Kendrick.

The pair chat about working together on The Accountant, their Irish connections (which fascinatingly involve the police and made-up identities) and the Oscar-winner reveals just how much he and his acting partner love Ireland's national thespian treasure, Brendan Gleeson, and his super-talented son, Domhnall.

Well, they're only human after all.
