Matt Damon wanted Ben Affleck to "fire" himself from his new film, 'Argo'

\"\"



Matt and Ben
The 'Contagion' actor wants to work with his 'Good Will Hunting' writing partner again and is jealous of the role Ben has cast himself in for his next directorial endeavor.

He said: "Ben's making a great movie now called 'Argo'. It's really, really good.

"I can't get him to put me in it because he took the best role. He took the lead. I called him and was like, 'Dude, why don't you fire yourself and put me in it man? I'd be great in this.' "

Despite the disappointment, Matt is still looking forward to working with Ben again in the future.

He added: "We really want to work together again. We have a couple of things we're developing, so we're hoping we can work together."

Ben's career stalled a decade ago with a string of flop movies and Matt feels "vindicated" that his friend has now got his professional life back on track.

He said: "That was really hard for me to watch as his friend, because I didn't think it was fair to him.

"It's more of a relief to me, to be honest. As his writing partner, I know how great he is. I always knew that better than anybody, so now I just feel vindicated. Everything is right with the Force again."
