Desperate for a Tinseltown comeback, Ben Affleck hopes to save his career with a bizarre new role — as a cross-dresser! And has learned pal Matt Damon dreamed up the wacky idea!

“Matt wants to direct a Some Like it Hot-style comedy with Ben as his co-star,” a source told Radar. “The concept is that their characters are brothers and Matt is successful at relationships, while Ben is a macho man about town."

The insider continued, “They both need money and cook up a plan for Ben to drag it up and infiltrate an exclusive club of wealthy women. He’ll ultimately rip them off — with Matt’s character coaching him through the process!”

Damon has had Affleck’s back since the Oscar-winning buddies reunited at the World Series in L.A. after not being seen together for months.

As Radar has reported, Affleck’s addiction battles wrecked his 13-year marriage to Jennifer Garner and put his career on life-support.

BFF Damon has been by his pal’s side, offering help, advice and even encouraging him to dump his 22-year-old rebound fling, Shauna Sexton.

“Matt’s hoping this movie will get Ben — and his life — back on track!” the source spilled.
