WZTV FOX 17 - Top Stories
"Not that I'm Mr. US NEWS and WORLD REPORT up on everything, but I had no idea until I had read the script and then I read the WIRED article on which the script is based," says John Goodman.
"I read this story and thought, I kept going back true story, okay," says Bryan Cranston. "Because what I'm reading here is bizarre and if it was just written as a fiction people would go get out, c'mon, it's, no one's gonna believe that. That's what makes the story all the more gripping is that, what a daring, daring venture."
Directing only his 2nd feature film, star Ben Affleck says the story had to be streamlined for the big screen.
"The truth is often unwieldy and all over the place so it needed to be sculpted," says Affleck. "It's not a docu-drama obviously, it's a feature. I had to maintain the integrity of the truth but I also had to make it watchable and fun and exciting."
Since the details of the rescue weren't made public until the 1990s, we asked the stars which moments in history they'd like to see declassified.
"I would wanna know exactly what state the moon landing happened in because it of course never happened," says Cranston. "No. I'm not one of those. I know."
"I still think there's something about the Kennedy assassination that we don't know, although I know that's like the usual crazy conspirator myth."
If you're interested in "Argo", remember it is rated R.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
