Ben Affleck has received many accolades in 2013 – including a Best Picture Oscar for his film Argo.
But his newest honor may be one of his most prestigious to date.
The actor/director/producer will become Dr. Ben Affleck when Brown University bestows him with an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts (D.F.A.) at their May 26 graduation ceremony. The Ivy League school in Providence, Rhode Island selected the 40-year-old star for the honor in a year that saw Affleck pick up Best Director trophies from the Golden Globes and the Directors Guild of America, in addition to his Oscar win as a producer for Argo.
Affleck will next be seen in the upcoming thriller Runner Runner.
