[FILM] Million Dollar Arm

Based on a true story, Disney’s Million Dollar Arm follows
JB Bernstein(Jon Hamm), a once-successful sports agent who
now finds himself edged out by bigger, slicker competitors. He
and his partner Aash (Aasif Mandvi) will have to close their
business down for good if JB doesn’t come up with something
fast. Late one night, while watching cricket being played in India
on TV, JB comes up with an idea so radical it just might work.
Why not go to there and find the next baseball pitching sensation?
Setting off for Mumbai with nothing but a gifted but cantankerous
scout (Alan Arkin) in tow, JB stages a televised, nationwide
competition called “Million Dollar Arm” where 40,000 hopefuls
compete before two 18-year-old finalists, Rinku and Dinesh
(Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal), emerge as winners. JB brings
them back to the United States to train with legendary
pitching coach Tom House (Bill Paxton). The goal: get the
boys signed to a major league team.
