Need a little Jon Hamm between Mad Men seasons? Check out this new trailer for Million Dollar Arm.
Hamm plays J.B. Bernstein, a sports agent who is struggling to keep his business afloat when he has an unusual idea – bring talented cricket players from India to the U.S. to play pro baseball.
Based on the true story of Bernstein and baseball pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel, Million Dollar Arm refers to the reality show competition Bernstein staged in India to select the cricket players with the most potential to become Major League pitchers.
Bernstein brings the winners back to the U.S. to train and in the process becomes close with his neighbor, Brenda Paauwe, played by Lake Bell.
The film also stars Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Suraj Sharma and Aasif Mandvi.
