Hollywood heart-throb Ben Affleck is poised to drop his serious screen image for the sake of humour - he's considering taking roles in two new comedies.

Jennifer Lopez's fiance is close to signing a deal with Disney to star in GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, and he is already attached to NEW LINE CINEMA's SEX TALK.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past centres on a bachelor who bumps into his ex-girlfriends at his younger brother's wedding - and is reported to be a new take on the CHARLES DICKENS classic A Christmas Carol.

Meanwhile Sex Talk is about a sports reporter who uses sport terminology and strategies to help people overcome troubles in their sex lives.
