Michael B. Jordan, Ryan Renolds, and Rob McElhenney Get Money Beyond The Big Screen

As reported by CBS Sports, Michael B. Jordan of “Creed” trilogy fame, Ryan Renolds of “Deadpool” fame, and Rob McElhenney of “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fame, will join Otro Capital and RedBird Capital Partners, and will own a 24 percent equity stake in Alpine Racing. The $218.10 million investment places Alpine Racing's current valuation at an estimated $900 million. Ryan Reynolds leads Maximum Effort Investments, along with Rob McElhenney and Michael B. Jordan.

"This association is an important step to enhance our performance at all levels," Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi said in a statement. "Otro Capital, RedBird Capital Partners and Maximum Effort Investments, as international players with strong track record in the sports industry, will bring their recognized expertise to boost our media and marketing strategy, essential to support our sporting performance over the long term."

According to TMZ Sports, Alpine couldn't be more thrilled with the deal ... saying the partnership "will bring successful sports & media experience and operational expertise in building high-growth companies."

Jordan’s first foray into sports ownership was with soccer club A.F.C. Bournemouth in 2022. He invested a whopping $120 million making him and his partners minority


As reported by DorsetLive, on “The Graham Norton Show” Jordan expressed his interest in the team and his reason for involvement, "It is crazy and amazing.

It seems that Jordan, Reynolds, and McElhenney have their work cut out for them, as all three remain consistently and successfully involved in tv and film.
