I was a huge fan of his from years ago with "Changing Lanes," which Roger Michell directed; I really loved him in it. Here he's playing someone unlikable at first, someone you're confused about a little bit, someone a little too handsome, a little too cocky –-at times you feel like punching him in the face. Ben can get all those things and still get an audience to feel for his character without making him become too pathetic. When Ben started out, he swiftly became a "young leading man," which is always a tricky thing to be. Now that he's matured, I think we're going to see a lot of great things from him. He's an extraordinarily talented writer and director, but he's also a terrific actor.
