If you see someone who looks like Ben Affleck out and about Monday and Tuesday in Chicago, it very well could be "The Town" and "Good Will Hunting" actor.

Affleck will be here to screen his new film, “Argo,” which he starred in and directed, and to discuss the movie with media. The based-on-a-true-story film revolves around six U.S. diplomats who escaped Iran in 1979 by posing as a film crew.

Affleck -- who some critics say may earn an Oscar nomination for Best Director for "Argo," in theaters October 12 -- visited Chicago with his brother Casey Affleck in 2007 to screen “Gone Baby Gone” at the Chicago International Film Festival.
