If Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) becomes the next Secretary of State, what will happen to his U.S. Senate vacancy? Many are predicting that actor-director Ben Affleck could be his replacement.

“Ben has been very active in Democratic Party politics for a long time and has never hid his love of politics,” a friend of Ben’s tells The Huffington Post. “He is a very impressive person, with a great deal of knowledge and passion.”

Ben is in D.C. now, raising awareness about the troubles in the Congo, but he declined to state his intentions when asked by Politico.
