In an interview with USA Today, Casey Affleck let slip that he's putting the final touches on opening a new restaurant in Los Angeles.

While celebrity-backed eateries are nothing new, it's worth keeping an eye on this one as it most likely will embrace the 34-year-old's strict vegan diet.

“When people ask me why I don’t eat meat or any other animal products, I say, ‘Because they are unhealthy and they are the product of a violent and inhumane industry,'" he said in a recent PSA for animal-rights org PETA. “Chickens, cows and pigs in factory farms spend their whole lives in filthy, cramped conditions, only to die a prolonged and painful death.”

Affleck, whose wife is also vegan, has been a fan of the no-animal-products diet for the past 15 years. No word yet on what his new eatery will be called.
