Casey Affleck plays street soccer with son Atticus, 12, as they come out to practice during California’s closing
They have stayed home amid the state-wide order for Shelter At Home.
But after official advice that outside sports is a permitted activity, Casey Affleck showed up on Wednesday for a game of street football with son Atticus, 12.
The pair threw a ball around their Los Angeles home on Wednesday as they took a walk together.

Father and son walked side by side and threw American football between them on their sunny outing.
Oscar winner Casey, 44, actor Ben’s younger brother, also has a 15-year-old son, Indiana, with ex-wife Summer Phoenix, sister of Joaquin Phoenix, this year’s best actor-winner.
While Hollywood is almost closed during the current health crisis, Affleck has two films in post-production.
He will star in the upcoming thriller Every Breath You Take and also in the mid-19th century American East Coast frontier drama The World To Come.
Having fun: Casey throws a ball for his youngest son on the street
Ben Affleck’s brother has a relatively low public profile, especially since he has been haunted by sexual misconduct allegations for nearly a decade.
In 2010, two former female colleagues sued Casey for sexual harassment and emotional problems, among other things.
He maintained his innocence and settled the lawsuits at the time, but the allegations surfaced around the time of his Oscar win for Manchester By the Sea in 2017.
Affleck then stopped presenting at the Academy Awards the following year.
Despite the accusations and the “ noise ” surrounding it (and so he apparently referred to it during a Golden Globes acceptance speech), Casey has maintained a steady stream of work.
He recently wrote, directed and starred in the 2019 drama Light of My Life. Earlier this month, his latest film The Friend premiered with co-starring Jason Segel and Dakota Johnson.
