The narrative of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's friendship is one of the most popular pop culture stories in recent history.

Theirs is one of the most storied bromances in Hollywood: Childhood friends strike gold with their 1997 film, "Good Will Hunting," earning the boyish pair two Oscars, and leading to a career of working together and supporting each other's work for the next two decades.

The duo has worked together on numerous other projects like "Project Greenlight" and "Chasing Amy," and their newest, "The Runner" is sure to be another humungous hit for them.

"The Runner" is a groundbreaking new reality show that will be played out over the course of a 30-day period, and it's a show that Affleck and Damon have been trying to get made for almost 15 years. Their joint venture as executive producers of the innovative series marks almost 20 years since "Good Will Hunting," so we decided to look back at their best projects together through the years below.
