Ben Affleck Clutching a Starbucks Cup in Resurfaced Pic Has People Making Dunkin’ Jokes


Complex has playfully reached out to Dunkin for comment, albeit with the ulterior motive of the company one day deciding to fund my own caffeine addiction. This story may be updated.

As a director, Affleck’s most recent project was the Nike-focused biographical drama Air. Following the film’s SXSW premiere, I spoke with Alex Convery about bringing Air Jordan to the big screen, with the screenwriter revealing that he was first inspired to tell this particular story after watching The Last Dance.

“If Ben had gotten this script five years ago, he’s probably not making the movie,” Convery said at the time, as seen here. “So much to it is right time, right place. And luck is always the biggest factor in all of this stuff. But the only way you can create your own luck is to put as many screenplays out there as possible and do the best work you feel like you can and the rest is kind of up to fate.”
