Ben Affleck is encouraging Hollywood to film more movies in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts--because the state's new tax breaks make it an affordable place to shoot.

The 33-year-old actor has just finished filming his directorial debut Gone, Baby, Gone in the city, and he wants others in the movie industry to follow his example and work there.

Affleck says, "Companies thinking about coming here definitely should.

"They'll be met with enthusiasm, and they'll get to shoot in a place that is really unique and distinct... And I want to thank Boston for making that possible."
