AT Walt Disney Studios Canada, the folks are preparing to hold advance screenings of their upcoming film, Million Dollar Arm, throughout the Vancouver area. Million Dollar Arm stars Jon Hamm, who plays a sports agent that travels to India, hoping to find the country’s best young cricket players, to provide an opportunity of a lifetime to – travel to America, train to become professional baseball pitchers, and ultimately get signed to an MBA team. As you can imagine, JB feels completely out of place in India, as do the two young cricketers, Rinku and Dinesh, when they leave their tiny villages and arrive in America.
Million Dollar Arm is actually based on a true story and it’s incredibly heart-warming, funny and touching. It also stars Aasif Mandvi, Suraj Sharma from Life of Pi, and Madhur Mittal from Slumdog Millionaire.
