Even stars have to go through airport security. And it doesn’t always go well.
Just ask Casey Affleck, who was caught on camera trying to bring a baseball bat onto a flight at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday. A video on the gossip website TMZ showed Affleck rocking a mean moustache while carrying a yellow and black Easton bat in his right hand.
As the Oscar-winning actor approached the line for security, the TMZ reporter asked an obvious question.
“You’re gonna take a bat on the plane?” he asked.
“We’re gonna find out,” replied Affleck.
“Actually you know what, I like that,” quipped the TMZ reporter, “because, you know, you’re providing security for the rest of the flight.”
“I hope so,” replied Affleck.
But alas, Affleck didn’t get his way. After talking it over with the TSA agents, it appeared that Affleck had to leave his bat behind before boarding the plane.
