Jon Hamm has been a busy man recently! After entering talks to play the same part alongside Daniel Radcliffe, the actor has been attached to a Disney project that could see him play a remarkable American sports agent.
The film is based upon the real-life actions of J.B. Bernstein, a sports dealmaker who travelled to India in an effort to find the next big baseball star. Bernstein created Million Dollar Arm, a reality television show that whittled 40,000 auditionees to two 19-year-old sports stars. However, when he returned to the States with the young men the agent realised that he would have to teach them all about American culture and the English language as the potential players had never left their small rural homes. His hard work paid off, and the winners became the first Indian players to sign with a professional team.
The project will begin production in the autumn of this year, according to Deadline.
Are you looking forward to seeing Hamm outside his famous Don Draper role?
