Move over Andy Samberg, Ben Affleck is Berkeley boy

Most Berkeley celebrities are professors, writers and political firebrands. But it turns out that actor Ben Affleck, usually dubbed a Boston native, was born in Berkeley. He moved to Boston when young, but something of the Berkeley spirit seems to have infected him. The photo of Affleck, above, was taken during a discussion on America’s role in combating global poverty. Not the usual venue for movie stars.
