With the end in sight for Mad Men after next season, Jon Hamm must look onward and upward. And no film career would be complete without a family-friendly sports triumph, a la The Rookie. Well, this one’s gonna be called Million Dollar Arm, and it stars Hamm as a baseball scout who hosts a competition in India to find a promising prospect for Major League Baseball.

The film is based on the true story of two Indian players who were signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates (spoiler alert: with limited success). The film hits theaters May 14th, so if you have a five year-old, they’ll be mature enough to see this movie in nine months, so that works out pretty well for ya.
