Jennifer Lopez making an unexpected visit to the set of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon‘s movie seems like a phrase straight out of 2002, but such was the case on Tuesday. As Ben, 49, and Matt, 51, filmed their currently untitled biopic about the creation of Nike, J.Lo, 52, swung by the film set in Los Angeles on June 21. In a photo from of her visit, Jennifer rocked a black jumpsuit, a perfect outfit for the early summer weather in Southern California. While she walked with Ben, J.Lo leaned in and kissed her soon-to-be husband on the lips. Ben, for his part, kept it casual, dressing in a grey t-shirt, a pair of dark jeans.
J.Lo’s visit comes days after she gushed over her fiancé on Father’s Day. J.Lo called Ben “the most caring, loving, affectionate, consistent, and selfless Daddy ever.” Ben is dad to three children with Jennifer Garner: Violet, 16, Samuel, 10, and 13-year-old Seraphina. He has also spent time with J.Lo and Marc Anthony’s twins, 14-year-old Max & Emme.
“I have had a front-row seat to watching how you father for over a year now, and I have never seen a more consistent, loving, and selfless father,” Jennifer wrote in her Father’s Day newsletter on June 19. “And it’s not just to your own kids but also without obligation to mine as well. You show up and put them first always.”
Expect the whole family to come out to support Ben’s new project with his buddy, Matt Damon. Ben’s directing the currently untitled project for Amazon Studios, Skydance Sports, and Mandalay Pictures, per Deadline. The sports marketing film will “tell the incredible story of how Sonny Vaccaro (Damon), a maverick sneaker salesman, led a fledgling running shoe company called Nike in its pursuit of the most transformative athlete in the history of sports: Michael Jordan.” Ben will also appear in the film as Nike co-founder, Phil Knight. The story will capture Nike’s “longshot effort to sign Jordan to its shoe company in the mid-’80s, an endorsement.” The deal launched Nike as a brand synonymous with sports and helped launch the global, multibillion-dollar sneaker industry.
Viola Davis is attached to the project to play Deloris Jordan, Michael’s mother, while Julius Tennon will play James Jordan, Michael’s father. Chris Tucker will portray Howard White, another Nike member instrumental in the deal. Chris Messina will portray legendary sports agent David Falk, and Matthew Maher will portray designer Peter Moore.
