Jon Hamm to star in a Dinesh and Rinku movie

15 Comments

Via Deadspin, word of the next baseball movie you’re likely to see:

Mad Men star Jon Hamm has become attached to play a sports agent in Million Dollar Arm, the drama based on the true story of how sports agent J.B. Bernstein discovered professional pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel through a reality show he staged in India with cricket players.

As we’ve noted before, one of the two players is back in India, seeking a government job. The other is still — slowly — working his way through the Pirates’ system.  So it’s not going to be the conventional “big game” sports movie, obviously.  Which is good considering those are pretty played out.
