"The Accountant," starring Affleck as a shady forensic accountant, is filming at Georgia Tech. The project, which previously has filmed in Roswell, also stars Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Lithgow, Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey Tambor.

Tech's a popular filming site, by the way. Movies including "The Internship" with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn; and "Million Dollar Arm" with Jon Hamm are among the films to have set up shop there. Go, Jackets!
