Movies Reindeer Games (2000, Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron) Published 6 months ago on November 16, 2018 Car thief Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) shares his penitentiary cell with Nick (James Frain), a quiet prisoner who survives his ordeal by thinking of his pen pal Ashley (Charlize Theron), who he is set to meet when released. But after a riot in which Nick helps defend his cellmate, the youngster gets his wish and leaves jail – in a body bag, giving Rudy the chance to assume his identity and begin a passionate affair with Ashley. Her brother Gabriel (Gary Sinise) is interested in Nick’s former occupation at a Michigan casino, and plans to rob the establishment using the insider’s knowledge. Rudy owns up to his deception but realising he will be killed, decides to continue with his alias. However, with the heist imminent, Rudy realises he’s not the only one with a secret, and bides his time knowing that Ashley and Gabriel have plans for him, unaware that someone else will soon determine the future for all of them… It should have been a Vin Diesel adventure, but the blockhead beefcake (hot from Saving Private Ryan ) played the diva and was shown the door. In stepped Affleck to head up the $42 million caper movie and demonstrate there was life beyond Kevin Smith or Matt Damon. He doesn’t blow it, showing unexpected menace and, when denouncing Ashley, thriving with lines like ‘I had better sex in prison’. Sinise gives another superior performance and Theron shows genuine depth (as with The Astronaut’s Wife) in a difficult role. production details USA | 124 minutes | 2000 Director: John Frankenheimer Script: Ehren Kruger cast Ben Affleck as Rudy Duncan Gary Sinise as Gabriel Mercer Charlize Theron as Ashley Mercer Dennis Farina as Jack Banks Donal Logue as Pug Danny Trejo as Jumpy Isaac Hayes as Zock James Frain as Nick Cassidy Dana Stubblefield as The Alamo Mark Acheson as Mean Guard Tom Heaton as Ugly Staffer Michael Sunczyk as Distant Inmate #1 Douglas Arthurs as Distant Inmate #2 Dean Wray as Guard #1 Ron Sauvé as Guard #2 Ron Jeremy as Prisoner #1 Hrothgar Mathews as Exit Guard Clarence Williams III as Merlin Ashton Kutcher as College Kid Ben AffleckCharlize TheronDana StubblefieldDanny TrejoDennis FarinaDonal LogueDramaEhren KrugerGary SiniseIsaac HayesJames FrainJohn FrankenheimerMark AchesonMichael SunczykThrillerTom Heaton Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV14 hours ago Cutting It (BBC-1 2002-2005, Amanda Holden, Sarah Parish) Comedy drama series.
