According to the The Hollywood Reporter Jon Hamm (Mad Men) has signed on to play sports agent J.B. Bernstein in Disney’s The Million Dollar Arm. The movie tells the story of Bernstein an American sports agent who discovered two teenage cricket players from India by using a reality TV program that he created aimed at finding who could through a baseball the fastest. He then brings the teenagers back to America and they eventually sign with a major league team.
The film is still looking for a director and no release date has been set. Disney has a great track record when it comes to sports related films, Miracle, The Rookie, and Remember the Titans to name a few. I am excited to see how this one develops.
