Hollywood buddies Ben Affleck and Matt Damon will be out in force in the run up to this November's presidential election.
After forging a successful writing and acting partnership, the pair have both thrown their weight behind the Democrat candidate.
But while Affleck is a long-standing Democrat campaigner, Damon admitted this week that he has never voted.
The Borne Identity star revealed during an interview that this year would be the first time he has put pen to ballot paper.
"I'll vote for John Kerry," he told the World Entertainment News Network. "The last election I had this feeling everyone was just going toward the middle and it's the same thing no matter what, and it turned out to be the most politically critical moment in my lifetime."
Ben Affleck is widely tipped to seek out a career in politics at some point in the future.
Matt Damon meanwhile looks set to stick to movies. Fans can see him in The Borne Supremacy later this year.
