In the clip Affleck is talking about his movie "Air" and Michael Jordan's involvement in the film, explaining he wouldn't have made the film if the athlete didn't approve. The film has an actor playing Jordan, but his face is not shown, and he has around two lines. "There's no actor in the world where the audience will believe that Michael Jordan" he explained.
It's not the first time Affleck has wowed people with his Spanish. He learned the language when he was 13 when he was living in Mexico filming a television show. Which explains his Mexican accent.
