A Hollywood a-lister was banned from a Vegas casino for cheating at cards.

Ben Affleck, Mr. Affleck is set to play Batman in the upcoming Batman v. Superman, and who starred in and directed the last year’s Oscar winning best film Argo, was allegedly caught counting cards while playing blackjack at the Hard Rock casino in Vegas.

Unnamed sources told TMZ that hotel security approached the actor and told him, “you’re too good at this game.”

Security then informed him that he had been deemed an advantaged player and would no longer be able to play blackjack at the Hard Rock.

TMZ reported that Mr. Affleck planned the Vegas trip as a romantic getaway with wife, Jennifer Garner.

Mr. Affleck is a well-known card-player. He played in the World Series of Poker with friend and fellow actor Matt Damon. In 2001 he reportedly won $800,000 playing blackjack at the Hard Rock by playing three $20,000 hands at once, according to TMZ.
