Thesp joins Jon Hamm in Disney production

Allyn Rachel has joined the cast of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” baseball pic opposite Jon Hamm and Alan Arkin.

Mayhem Pictures and Roth Films are producing with shooting set for Mumbai, India and Atlanta.

“Lars and the Real Girl” helmer Craig Gillespie is directing from a script by Tom McCarthy (“Win Win”). Hamm will portray real-life sports agent Jeff Bernstein who discovered professional pitchers Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel through a reality show he staged in India with cricket players.

Rachel, who performs regularly with the Upright Citizens Brigade, will play the fiercely loyal, hard-working assistant. She recently sold a single-camera comedy to Fox based on her web series “Couple Time” with Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production producing.

Rachel is repped by CAA and managed by Melanie Truhett of Truhett Garcia Management. Her attorney is Lev Ginsburg.
