casey affleck on the cover

Our first cover dude ever makes his return…

by Josh Madden

Way back in 2004, Casey Affleck appeared on the very first cover of NYLON Guys. (It was called NYLON for Guys at the time.) Casey has done a lot of amazing things through the years since, including films like Gone Baby Gone and The Assassination of Jessie James by the Coward Robert Ford. He was nominated for an Oscar, directed I'm Still Here and now he's back, in the new thriller Out of the Furnace. We're excited to him on the big screen again and we're super stoked to have him back on the cover. Check out some highlights from our interview below and read the full story on page 108 of this month's issue.

Did you know?: Affleck sold hot dogs at Fenway park.

On his wardrobe: "I only have, like, five T-shirts."

Did you know?: Affleck has been a vegan since 1995.

On choosing roles: "Basically my M.O. is I wait and wait and wait until I find something that I really love and want to do. Then I'm broke and I take the first thing that comes along. My career is marked by those periodic big movies, you know? And I hate doing them. Those movies--when you're just working because it's a big paycheck? It's depressing man."
