Ben Affleck's latest directorial feature, Air, draws on real-life events to tell the story of how the sportswear brand Nike teamed up with then-rookie and future NBA superstar Michael Jordan to launch the iconic Air Jordan shoe. Affleck plays Nike co-founder Phil Knight, while his frequent collaborator Matt Damon plays Sonny Vaccaro, the marketing exec who came up with the idea of signing Jordan.
While Michael Jordan himself does not actually appear in the movie, he reportedly met with Affleck and gave the movie his blessing—and his family are portrayed in Air. In fact, Jordan himself apparently suggested that Affleck cast The Woman King star Viola Davis as his mother Deloris Jordan. Julius Tennon plays his father James R. Jordan Sr.
The cast also includes Chris Messina as sports agent David Falk, Marlon Wayans as basketball coach George Raveling, Chris Tucker as Howard White, Matthew Maher as creative director Peter Moore, and Arrested Development's Jason Bateman as Nike chairman Rob Strasser.
Air received rave reviews when it screened at SXSW earlier this year, and is available to stream.
