Million Dollar Arm

Posted: Updated:

"Mad Men" shoots its final season this summer, and Jon Hamm's already moving on to his next big thing as a leading man sporting his million dollar charm in Disney's new feel-good film, "Million Dollar Arm."

It's an incredible true story and Hamm's telling Deco how making the movie changed him for the better.

Jon Hamm's a sport agent down on his luck in "Million Dollar Arm," so he heads to India looking for major league prospects, even if most people there have never heard of baseball. It's based on a crazy true story, and Hamm says it was cray-cray shooting it, too.

Jon Hamm: "When you're in the middle of Mumbai in this swirl of people, and smells, and sights, and heat and everything, you go, 'How does this work?'"

Jon Hamm: "You're standing next to a building that was built in, you know, the 1800s, and a Rolls-Royce goes by you and then a cow walks the other way. You just can't process like, like what is happening here?"

Things get crazier when J.B. brings two boys home. John's neighbor, Lake Bell, sees the error in his ways.

Lake Bell: "I definitely think my character's a voice of reason, but it comes with a firm hand."

Lake Bell: "I think he sort of goes into it thinking he's gonna change these guys' lives, but in the end, they sort of, they change his life."

And Jon found his time in India life-altering, too.

Jon Hamm: "The one thing that I really took away, and we had this experience in every city that we were in India, and kind of every experience we had in India was there's this beautiful sense of family and this beautiful sense of community. You know, it's a very, very crowded place, obviously, and the way that it works is that people kind of have to get along in small spaces. And the way that they do that is by being nice."

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    When I was the in the sixth grade, I used to style my hair in a long, hot dog curl. Not as in a ponytail; that would have been cute. Instead, I brushed it all forward as flat as I could get it and once it reached my forehead, I curled the entire thing upward to create mock bangs. Yeah, it was pretty horrible. If you don't believe me, check out the inset picture of the blog. That's me, in all my hair glory.Mind you, I wasn't trying to look bad on purpose. I just didn't know how to do my own h...

    You know what they say about a man that has a big foot and long hair? Yeah, that they would make a really good Hercules. And while Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has big feet, well he needed a little help in the hair department. Tonight The Rock is talking about how he became Hercules; everything from his feet, hair and to that fabulous body.
