Argo made its big debut this September as part of the Toronto International Film Festival, with Ben Affleck back in fine from and pulling triple duty as director, star and producer as he did in 2010 for The Town. Based on a true story, Argo, which stars Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Alan Arkin and Victor Garber, chronicles a covert operation that saw the CIA rescue six American embassy workers who were hiding at the home of the Canadian ambassador during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis.
