Hot off making "Argo," a film set during the Iranian hostage crisis, director and actor Ben Affleck mused over what present day political figure he'd like to see on the big screen. "I think David Petraeus -- I don't know if you'd call him a political figure -- is one of the most remarkable living Americans and if you got a sense to actually know what his life was like and what's he gone through, I bet it would be a spectacular movie," Affleck told reporters at the D.C. premiere of "Argo" Wednesday night. "But the paradox is because he's got such a great character I doubt very much he'd welcome some movie that was aggrandizing him." As for casting, Affleck's answer was obvious. "Well, it would either be me or Matt [Damon] -- it depends on who can get in better shape."
