It was 50 degrees and sunny in Boston yesterday, but on Roxbury’s historic Fort Hill, it was snowing. Crews with “The Company Men” – a John Wells film about corporate downsizing starring Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, and Kevin Costner – spent much of the day making fake snow for a winter scene at an old house on Highland Street.

Crews with “The Company Men” – a John Wells film about corporate downsizing starring Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, and Kevin Costner – spent much of the day making fake snow for a winter scene at an old house on Highland Street. Fort Hill resident Janet Fillion told us the faux flakes were flying everywhere. Word is the producers liked the haunted look of the house so much, they’ve agreed to foot the bill for at least some of the structure’s much-needed repairs. (Known as the Hodgdon House, the abode was built in the 1860s and is the last significant home constructed during the era of the “Fort Hill” development.) In the film, Affleck plays a onetime corporate hotshot who gets a construction gig to make ends meet. Yesterday, he and Costner could be seen milling around the property. One witness told us Affleck had difficulty handling a large piece of plywood, so he was given a smaller one. It wasn’t the first time Affleck and Costner worked together. “Today was a seminal day for me because when I was in high school, I was an extra at Fenway in ‘Field of Dreams,’ ” Affleck told us after he’d wrapped for the day. “Kevin didn’t know. Today was really big. I loved ‘JFK.’ And at this stage of my career, I’m setting my sights on working with people like, well, in ‘State of Play,’ I got to work with Russell Crowe, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Robin Wright Penn . . . and this is Kevin, Chris Cooper, and Tommy Lee Jones.” Affleck’s been bicoastal in recent days as he tries to balance work and family. The actor spent Easter in LA with wife Jennifer Garner and daughters Violet and Seraphina, then returned to Boston Sunday. Said Ben: “One of the things that’s been really satisfying is being able to come back here and make movies, especially now when everyone needs more work.”Ben Affleck as congressman Stephen Collins and Russell Crowe as D.C. reporter Cal McAffrey in a scene from “State of Play,” a political thriller about a rising congressman and an investigative journalist embroiled in a case of seemingly unrelated, brutal murder.
