Ben Affleck filming in the Financial District today

Ben Affleck was busy filming a lay-off scene for the downsizing drama "The Company Men" outside of the Fiduciary Trust Building located at 175 Federal St. near High Street in the Financial District today.

Many of the extras plucked from the casting call held at Felt on Saturday, April 11 noted here, were on set filming the pivotal moment in the movie.

According to the Boston Movie Tours blog here, the street sign for Federal was changed to "La Salle."

I made a trek to the site early in the afternoon, but the film crews had moved to the Boston Common area where a Loaded Gun Boston tipster says he spotted Affleck on location with his wife Jennifer Garner and their kids.

As previously reported in Loaded Gun, Chris Cooper has officially signed on to the made-in-Boston flick with Lowell native Maryann Plunkett playing his wife. Cooper will play a white-collar employee whose job is also about to be terminated.

Mario Bello, who recently signed on to play Kevin James' wife in Adam Sandler's upcoming made-in-Boston film called "Lake House," is doing double duty in Boston after snagging a role in the John Wells film.
