Off-kilter attempts at Boston accents are one thing. Getting a key part of Boston history wrong? That's a whole other thing entirely. But that's what a TV crime drama starring Kevin Bacon, with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon involved, seems to be doing. Showtime has ordered 12 episodes of the drama, "City on a Hill," describing it as a "fictional account of what was called the 'Boston Miracle,'" and based on an idea from Affleck. The show is set to air in 2019. Bacon is playing a "corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran," while fellow actor Aldis Hodge plays a local prosecutor who teams up with him to "take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown" in the 1990s, according to a Showtime release. That sounds like an interesting story - but that's not the "Boston Miracle," which involved black ministers, street gangs and the city's police force. And articles written about the show's production have repeated the historical error. "Obviously they haven't talked to anyone who had … [Read more...] about ‘City on a Hill:’ Here’s how Ben Affleck and Hollywood are getting Boston all wrong

Who needs Bruce Wayne to save the day? Not Batfleck. When poked by one of Gotham's very own publications, The New Yorker, Ben Affleck came to his own rescue on Twitter Thursday. We presume things went awry in the Twitterverse when the magazine promoted a story titled "The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck" on Wednesday. The piece published a few days prior, touched on the actor's large back tattoo of a phoenix, which The Yorker deemed "garish." Admittedly, his ink isn't for everybody — Affleck's former fiancée Jennifer Lopez called it "awful" while on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live in 2016. That same year, his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, told Vanity Fair, “You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.” More: Matt Damon, Ben Affleck join Hollywood stars in adopting inclusion … [Read more...] about Ben Affleck claps back at ‘The New Yorker’ for ‘garish’ back tattoo slight
