Jon Hamm will dust off his best Jerry Maguire this autumn as a sports agent in Million Dollar Arm, Deadline reports. The drama details the true tale of 44-year-old J.B. Bernstein, who created an Indian reality show to make Major League Baseball stars out of cricket players, resulting in Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel heading to the Pittsburgh Pirates as the first Indian MLB players. Hamm has appeared in a series titled Mad Men.
