Are Ben Affleck and Ryan Seacrest Clubbing Buddies?
Move over Matt Damon, Batfleck has some new friends and we’re not talking about the Justice League.
According to People, Ben Affleck was spotted at 1 OAK, a popular club in Los Angeles, alongside several high profile pals. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star was seen hanging out with none other than American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and billionaire Ted Waitt.
You read that correctly, Affleck and Seacrest are apparently clubbing buddies now. Sorry, Damon.
We’re not sure if the actor needed a pick-me-up after his latest blockbuster’s dismal reviews—as well as the “Sad Affleck” meme going viral—but sources told People that he was in “high spirits throughout the whole night.”
Seacrest wasn’t the only big celebrity that Affleck hung out with over the weekend.
Pop megastar Justin Bieber was also in attendance at the L.A. hotspot, as he was there celebrating the success of his sold-out “Purpose” tour.
A source told People that Bieber introduced himself to Affleck and “even joked that he should be in Ben’s next superhero movie.”
Many fans speculated that the singer would be playing the Dark Knight’s sidekick after he posted an image of himself holding the Batman v Superman script on Instagram a few years ago. Thankfully, it was just a joke and didn’t come to pass.
However, if Bieber is serious about wanting to join the DC Comics cinematic universe, we’re going to have to give that idea a hard no.
We’re begging you, Ben, please don’t put Bieber in the next Batman movie. Enough damage has been done to this franchise already, there’s no need to turn Robin into a “Belieber.”
