Holy Shit, We Don't Recognize Anyone In This Thrilling New "Let's Have A Serious Meeting" Still From 'Argo'

Behold! The second new exciting still from Ben Affleck's "Argo." Based on a Blacklist-favored script by Chris Terrio, "Argo" tells the true story of how the CIA, with help from Hollywood, used a fake movie project to smuggle hostages out of Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

"Argo" boasts a stellar cast of great character actors including Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kerry Bishe, Kyle Chandler, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Victor Garber, Zeljko Ivanek, Richard Kind, Scoot McNairy, Chris Messina, Michael Parks and Taylor Schilling. But for the life of us, we can't really figure out who the hell is in this image other then Affleck. Actually, second and third last from the left appears to be Christopher Denham and Tate Donovan, but you could never point them out in a line-up.

Either way, it appears that the team in this photo is going through an exciting meeting full of status updates, mechanics, action items and statements of work. The main question we have to ask is: who's on the call? All joking aside, "The Town" was aces and we're looking forward to this one big time.

Hoping to strike it critical gold again, Warner Bros. is set to release "Argo" on September 14th, essentially the same weekend that Affleck's "The Town" took off in 2010. That also likely means a copycat of the Venice/TIFF run that film took too. [via Coming Soon]

    My (reasonably) educated guess of who's who over at HeyUGuys, for anyone interested.
    I'd say 80% confident.
    It's definitely McNairy on the left, that's pretty much 100%. He was actually in the first picture we saw of Affleck at the end of last year. (Albeit, a photo of him on the front page of the document Affleck was holding, but it was definitely him.)

    Can't wait for this.

    My main problem with The Town was the yuk-yuk lineup scene lifted from The Departed. As long as Whofleck doesn't try anything like that again, he'll be okay.

    The Town was so not aces.

    Just be thankful we're spared the pretentiousness we get in an Eastwood thread.

    It always surprises me when people share their bad taste so proudly. I'm refering to you, Glass.

    I wanna say that the one on the far left is Bryan Cranston but I could be wrong

    I recognize Christopher Denham in the blue shirt on the right. He was great in Shutter Island.

    Best guess. The couch is Tate Donovan, Scoot McNairy and Rory Cochrane (I think). Titus Welliver is the chair? The women? And I think that's Matt Damon standing in the middle.

  • J | January 30, 2012 6:59 PM

    Nope. You're right... that's Denham not McNairy in the middle (which is a new sitcom).

    Denim on denim? BARF.

    That's Kerry Bishe in the white shirt with brown hair.

    I didn't know Ben Affleck was in Boogie Nights? This looks so promising!
