October 15, 2011 - Washington

Matt Damon has revealed that he wanted Ben Affleck to "fire" himself from his new film as he wanted the lead role in 'Argo'.

The 41-year-old actor, who wanted to work in 'Agro' directed by Ben Affleck, also said that he was jealous of the role the 39-year-old actor cast himself in for his next directorial endeavour.

"Ben's making a great movie now called 'Argo'. It's really, really good," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"I can't get him to put me in it because he took the best role. He took the lead. I called him and was like, 'Dude, why don't you fire yourself and put me in it man? I'd be great in this'," he added.
