Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon Debut Political Ads

The actors star in public service announcements for health-care reform

Ben Affleck has joined forces with a team of celebrity advocates filming a public service announcement drawing attention to health-care reform.

The campaign, which will air on networks later this month, features the likes of Affleck, Reese Witherspoon, Eva Mendes, Garth Brooks, Morgan Freeman and Joaquin Phoenix.

Affleck, father to daughter Violet with wife Jennifer Garner, is featured working on a dollhouse in one of the 30-second ads. The spots, filmed in September with the actors volunteering their efforts, calls for viewers to go to – a nonpartisan campaign launched by the AARP seeking affordable, quality health care in America. The spots were shot in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation and the Motion Picture and Television Fund.
