Mad Men star Jon Hamm steps onto the big-screen mound on May 16 for a brand-new baseball movie from the producers of Miracle and Invincible, and ET was with Jon on the "green" AstroTurf carpet for the big Hollywood premiere of Million Dollar Arm. Will Jon pass our tough baseball terminology quiz? Watch the video to find out!
Oxygen's Susie Castillo was our special correspondent talking to Jon and co-stars, including Bill Paxton, Alan Arkin, Lake Bell, Aasif Mandvi and Madhur Mittal, who shared their thoughts on topics ranging from their favorite sports to the "manliness" of Jon Hamm!
Based on a true story, Disney's inspiring sports drama casts Jon as struggling sports agent JB Bernstein, who decides to find the next baseball phenom by flying to Mumbai, India and scouting Indian cricket players. He discovers two young talents, Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Mittal), by organizing a television competition called Million Dollar Arm. The film serves as a biopic for Rinku and Dinesh, who hold the MLB distinction of being the first Indian nationals to sign with a major American baseball team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Million Dollar Arm pitches into theaters May 16.
