Damon, who first met Affleck when they were just kids growing up in Massachusetts, was in character as Sonny Vaccaro, the real-life man who, despite all the naysayers, brokered the deal with Jordan, even though more established shoe companies Converse and Adidas were in the mix.

His best friend, who is also directing the project, will portray billionaire businessman, Phil Knight, the co-founder of shoe giant Nike.
