Affleck was spotted on the set wearing a white Panavision t-shirt and grey jeans with light blue Nike sneakers.

The cast also includes Jason Bateman as Nike marketing guru Rob Strasser, who was a key figure in signing Jordan, with Viola Davis and Julius Tennon playing Jordan’s  parents.

The cast also includes Chris Tucker as Howard White, a former basketball player who worked as a junior executive at Nike’s nascent basketball department, and Marlon Wayans as George Raveling, another former player who wound up at Nike.

Jordan will not actually be seen or played by anybody in the film, described as a, ‘giant mythic figure hovering above the movie,’ as Vaccaro tries to gain access to him.
