Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s Southern wedding will likely miss an important guest – the groom’s brother.
Casey Affleck was spotted at a Starbucks run in Los Angeles on Saturday morning, just hours before big brother Ben was to marry Jennifer Lopez in Georgia.
The paparazzi seemed surprised to see young Affleck taking a jaunt to Java and one even asked, “Why aren’t you in Georgia right now, man?”
Casey, 47, clearly uncomfortable, mumbled an unintelligible response that sounded like he said, “I have other things,” before leaving.
It’s the second time the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ actor has been pictured grabbing coffee in LA this week. He and his girlfriend Caylee Cowan were pictured picking up coffee and donuts on Thursday, a day before the wedding festivities begin.
The famous brothers have always had a supportive relationship, both personally and professionally.
In 2007, Casey starred in the film “Gone Baby Gone”, directed by Ben, now 50 years old. More than a decade later, he praised a “brave” Ben for checking himself into rehab.
While it’s not immediately clear if Casey will make it across the country in time for the couple’s second set of vows, many other family members and friends have arrived in Savannah in time.
Ben’s longtime pal and “Good Will Hunting” collaborator Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, landed in Georgia on Friday. In photos obtained exclusively by Page Six, paparazzi caught the couple stepping off a private jet at an airfield near Ben’s luxurious estate.
Earlier today, Casey and Ben’s mother, Christopher Anne Boldt, was rushed to hospital after falling from a dock on the property.
The ‘Gone Girl’ star’s children Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, as well as Lopez’s twins Max and Emme, were also spotted in the Peach State earlier this week.
Preparations for the three-day event have been underway since Thursday, and Ben is doing his best to keep things under wraps.

A police car is parked in front of the estate’s entrance and security boats monitor the surrounding waters. All guests must also show identification and obtain a wristband before entering.
Saturday’s nuptials will be the second wedding for Ben and Lopez, 53, who tied the knot in a speedy ceremony in Las Vegas last month.
They were previously engaged in 2002, but split two years later before walking down the aisle.
Ben and Lopez were last linked to actress Ana de Armas and Alex Rodriguez, respectively, before getting back together in April 2021.
