The flick tells the story of JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a once-successful sports agent who now finds himself edged out by bigger, slicker competitors. While watching Indian cricket late at night, JB comes up with an idea so radical it just might work. Why not go to there and find the next baseball pitching sensation?
JB stages a televised, nationwide competition called “Million Dollar Arm” where 40,000 hopefuls compete before two 18-year-old finalists, Rinku (Sharma) and Dinesh (Mittal), emerge as winners and JB brings them back to the United States to train with legendary pitching coach Tom House. The goal: get the boys signed to a major league team.
Million Dollar Arm premieres May 16th. Watch the featurette below!
