Casey Affleck Probably Won’t Attend Ben, Jennifer Lopez’s Wedding

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s southern wedding will likely miss one important guest: the groom’s brother.

Casey Affleck was spotted Saturday morning at a Starbucks run in Los Angeles, hours before big brother Ben was set to marry Jennifer Lopez in Georgia.

Paparazzi seemed surprised to see the younger Affleck on a java outing and one even asked, “Why aren’t you in Georgia right now, man?”

An obviously uneasy Casey, 47, muttered an unintelligible response that sounded like he was saying, “I have other things,” before driving off.

It’s the second time the “Ocean’s Eleven” actor has been caught over a coffee session in LA this week. He and his girlfriend Caylee Cowan were photographed on Thursday getting coffee and donuts, a day before the wedding celebrations started.

Casey Affleck looked sleepy as he picked up coffee in Los Angeles on Saturday morning, hours before his brother, Ben Affleck, was due to marry Jennifer Lopez across the country.

The famous brothers have always had a supportive relationship, both personally and professionally.

In 2007, Casey starred in the movie “Gone Baby Gone,” which was directed by Ben, now 50. More than a decade later, he praised a “brave” Ben for putting himself in rehab.

“I have other things,” Casey muttered when asked why he wasn’t with his brother and sister-in-law.

While it’s not immediately clear whether Casey will manage to fly across the country in time for the couple’s second set of vows, many other family members and friends arrived in Savannah in plenty of time.

Casey probably won’t be able to celebrate Lopez and his older brother’s second wedding.

Ben’s longtime friend and “Good Will Hunting” collaborator, Matt Damon, and his wife, Luciana Barroso, landed in Georgia on Friday. In photos obtained exclusively by Vidak For Congress, paparazzi caught the couple getting off a private jet at an airport near Ben’s luxurious estate.

Earlier that day, Casey and Ben’s mother, Christopher Anne Boldt, was rushed to hospital after falling from a scaffolding on the property.

The ‘Gone Girl’ star’s children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, as well as Lopez’s twins, Max and Emme, were also spotted in the Peach State earlier this week.

Preparations for the three-day event have been underway since Thursday, and Ben is doing his best to keep it a secret.

The “Batman” star secured a permit that made his property a no-fly zone for low-flying aircraft such as drones and helicopters during the big bash. The permit covers all areas within a three mile radius of the property, which sits on 87 acres of land.

Outside the estate entrance is a police car and security boats guarding the surrounding water. All guests must also show ID and be given a wristband before entering.

Saturday’s nuptials will be the second wedding for Ben and Lopez, 53, who tied the knot during a quickie in Las Vegas last month.

The property is under strict security.

They were previously engaged in 2002 but broke up two years later before coming down the aisle.

Ben and Lopez were last linked to actress Ana de Armas and Alex Rodriguez respectively, before getting back together in April 2021.
