In a last ditch
effort to save his career as a sports agent, JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm)
concocts a scheme to find baseball's next great pitching ace. Hoping to
find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball
star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called
"Million Dollar Arm." With the help of a cantankerous but eagle-eyed
retired baseball scout (Alan Arkin) he discovers Dinesh (played by
Madhur Mittal from "Slumdog Millionaire") and Rinku (played by Suraj
Sharma from "Life of Pi"), two 18 year old boys who have no idea about
playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to
sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the
boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out
of their element in India - the boys, who have never left their rural
villages - are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the
boys learn the finer points of baseball -- JB, with the help of his
charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell) -- learns valuable life lessons about
teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.
