Casey hunting in deep south?: Despite the New York Post's recent Page 6 article involving Casey purchasing a house in South Carolina and teaming up with Ben to purchase more land for a would-be "hunting lodge", CaseyAffleck.net has learned that this is untrue and if there is anything further on that story to report, we'll have an update. But for now, that story is NOT accurate.
Casey in Ocean's Twelve: Fox News confirmed in an article that Casey will return for Ocean's Twelve. While attending an after-party at the Maritime Hotel, Casey was asked about the constant media attention he and his brother have gotten in recent weeks. "It's like being on EdTV." Casey replied.

You can see the image here in both the Miscelaneous and Gerry image pages as well as in an updated Gerry movie profile here at CaseyAffleck.net.

Casey Siting in Beverly Hills: According to the New York Post, Casey was spotted Tuesday evening at the Four Season's bar in Beverly Hill's, writing his wedding toast for his brother's now postponed wedding. Not to undermine the Post's incredible flare for getting the story straight, (Goodness knows, they were right on the money when they said the wedding would be in Hawaii), but a less news-savy person might think Casey would've already had that speech written down. Our sources here, however, sent word that Summer performed with her sister Rain and her band The Paper Cranes on Tuesday night at Club Spaceland in Los Angeles.
Not the best man THIS weekend: Noted in a press release today, the Affleck wedding in which Casey was to be best man, was postponed. No word on whether the statement coming just days before the actual wedding was to take place in California is indeed "genuine" or just a last minute effort to "throw off" the world media, who have been lying in wait for the past month to cover the Hollywood nuptial event. According to the "Bennifer" reps, Casey will still get the chance to be best man, only at a later and "undisclosed" date.

Casey Sitings: Casey recently visited his mom August 23rd, at her Cape Cod summer home where he relaxed and hung out on the beach. In recent pictures from Star magazine he's also shown as having let his hair grow out somewhat again. Webmasters' note [We did not include that image in this site as we don't want to encourage the paparazzi's stalking of Casey, though fans may post it if they wish in the message board.] In other news: Casey is expected to be in California this weekend for Ben's wedding.
No World of Tomorrow: It's been confirmed to us by Casey's reps that he is NOT in The World of Tomorrow. The entire media community with the exception of Imdb.com and CaseyAffleck.net have been, and still continue to report false information on Casey's involvement in this film. On a personal note, this is the JOB of the media in Hollywood to confirm these things before fans like myself take it as fact, and when these media outlets don't correctly do their JOB, it makes me look stupid for covering what THEY initially report. So to the fans I apologise for the confusion as well to Casey and to Giovanni Ribisi (who took over the role when Casey could not) Anything you may read on Casey's appearing in "The World of Tomorrow", is NOT true. The page for that film has now been removed from the Titles&Descriptions page of CA.net, though I may keep the countless articles and incorrectly written interviews concerning Casey's role in this film to further embarrass the media in their blatant dissregard to do their jobs correctly.
A World Of Tomorrow Trilogy?: According to ComingSoon.net, "The World Of Tomorrow" Producer Aurelio De Laurentiis has given director Kerry Conran the greenlight to start writing the sequel. The film has also been reportedly pushed back from it's expected May 14th 2004 release date, with reports by Yahoo New's "Greg Dean Schmitz aka Greg's Previews" now claiming the film wont finish it's post-production stages until at least June 2004.
Christmas comes a month early for Casey & Matt fans: According to Videoeta.com, the release of "Gerry" has been given a direct release date, November 25th 2003. In other news as of July this year Casey is no longer with Creative Artists Agency or CAA as it's also known. Casey has signed with United Talent Agency, or UTA now for representation in all areas. We have not gotten a direct confirmation from them as to whether they will be able or willing to forward any of Casey's fan mail directly to him, so for that reason the Contact information to write to Casey has not been updated here at CA.net with the new address for UTA. Also: Please refrain however from sending ANY correspondance to Casey Affleck at the old CAA address, as they do not represent him anymore and will more than likely toss out any and all fan-mail sent to him. As soon as CA.net can confirm that they will forward his male or can give us another address for that, I'll let you all know.
Casey Cut From "Tomorrow"?: In a bizarre new developement over at the IMDB.com site, Casey's name in the role of "Dex" for the upcoming "The World of Tomorrow" has been "replaced" with Giovanni Ribisi. Casey's IMDB file, as well as the file's for both Ribisi and the film itself have been altered with the new information. If you'll remember, Ribisi was originally cast in "The World of Tomorrow" but was unable to take the role and Affleck was later cast. As far as CA.net has learned, Casey HAS in fact shot the film and was last mentioned as doing so in the lastest issue of "Dazed & Confused" magazine. The interview for which can be read here [Interviews]. No word on whether the role of "Dex" was later "re-shot" with Ribisi taking over control of the character previously played by Affleck, or if this was indeed a "mistake" over at IMDB.com. Also in other news, Casey's In The dark: A severe statewide power-outage has left Manhattan residents without power. Sources tell us, Casey and Summer have taken to
watching television by candle-light! Also in more news, Happy 31th Birthday to Ben Affleck from the folks at CA.net.

Gerry Delayed: Casey's film Gerry has been delayed in it's release on DVD and video. The film, starring Casey and Matt Damon was scheduled for release this August 2003, but has been pushed back to November 2003.
Casey ducks the press: Casey attended New York premier of best friend Joaquin Phoenix's new movie "Buffalo Soldiers" on July 21st but did not escort girlfriend Summer Phoenix into the event, nor was photographed attending the afterparty-dinner. Others who attended alongside Joaquin were mother Hart Phoenix, and sisters Rain and Summer. Some fan speculation has been that Casey chose not to respond to a possible press reaction to last week's public "Dateline" announcement by brother Ben of his being named "Best Man" at Ben's upcoming nuptials. In other Casey news: Casey has been named as having new management/representation by Variety. You can find the article here in CaseyAffleck.net..
