Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck is being lined up to step into Harrison Ford's shoes - and take on the role of Harrison's famous CIA agent Jack Ryan. Ford has decided not to reprise his action role in Tom Clancy's next film Sum of All Fears, The (2001), reportedly due to conflicts with director Phillip Noyce over script details. And now Good Will Hunting (1997) star Affleck appears to be preparing to take over the role. Ryan was first played by Alec Baldwin in the movie Hunt for Red October, The (1990).
