Ben Affleck may have hit a serious hurdle in his road to recovery with his recent boozy relapse, but according to brother Casey Affleck, the Hollywood actor will be just fine.

"He's doing great. I think he's holding up, taking some time for himself, his family — he's going to be okay," Casey, 43, told Extra while promoting his new The Old Man and the Gun film.

Not long after, ex-wife Jennifer Garner gave him a reality check and drove him right back to rehab.

"He's a great guy, and he's going to get things back on track," Casey said of his brother.

As for Casey, the actor is at the height of his fame after having starred in 2016 film Manchester by the Sea. Now, he has wrapped up filming for The Old Man and the Gun with Robert Redford and is sad to see the legend retire from acting.

"It's a shame, but I'm looking forward to all the other things he is going to do. He's probably just moving on to another adventure in his life," said Casey Affleck, adding that it was a "great honor" to work with the legend.
