EW has confirmed that Jon Hamm will headline Disney’s Million Dollar Arm, as first reported by Deadline. The Mad Men star will play sports agent-turned-reality show creator J.B. Bernstein, whose reality show Million Dollar Arm documented his search to find promising baseball players in India’s thriving cricket community. The show resulted in the signing of the MLB’s first two Indian players, though neither has yet advanced far in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ minor-league system. Oscar nominee Thomas McCarthy (Win Win) scripted the film. No further production details have been disclosed.
