Affleck plays Jim Young in the Ben Younger-directed crime drama. A senior broker at the firm J. T. Marlin, Young coaches new recruits to make millions in a cold-calling scheme that sells pump-and-dump stocks to investors. Comparing the film with Glengarry Glenn Ross:
Glengarry is the all-time epic greatest. But that was fun. Yeah, Ben Younger directed it. I had a really great time. I work now with Jennifer Todd, who was a producer on that movie … And you know, it was just, like really fun.
