D.VR, I REMEMBER THAT FROM--

>> SIX WEEKS AGO.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

AND THEN YOU TURN IT AND YOU'RE

LIKE, DID SHE TRAVEL TO SPACE?

HOW DOES DSHE AGE 10 YEARS?"

>> FIRST OF ALL, LINDA IS A

FANTASTIC ACTRESS AND LOVELY GAL

AS WELL.

SHE HAD JUST HAD HER BABY.

SO NOT ONLY WAS SHE MANAGING

BEING ON THE SHOW, NOT TELLING

ANYBODY THAT SHE'S ON THE SHOW,

INCLUDING FAMILY AND FRIENDS,

BUT ALSO DEALING WITH, LIKE, AN

INFANT.

>> Jon: RIGHT, RIGHT,

RIGHT.

>> I MEAN, I WAS, LIKE, AMAZED

THAT SHE COULD SHOW UP TO WORK

IN THE MORNING MUCH LESS BE AS

GOOD AS SHE IS.

>> Jon: YOU KNOW WHAT YOU

YOU CAN DO WITHY OSE, BECAUSE I

HAVE TWO OF THOSE, INFANTS.

DOUBLE-PANNED GLASS OUTSIDE ON

THE PORCH.

YOU CAN BARELY HEARÑi THEM.

>> YOU CAN BARELY HEAR THEM.

ESPECIALLY IN THE SPRINGTIME.

CHIRPING.

REGURGITATED FOOD IN THE MOUTH.

>> Jon: HERE'S WHAT'S

INTERESTING TO ME.

SO SHE IS NOT TIEBL TELL EVEN

HER FAMILY THAT SHE IS ON THE

>> YEAH.

IT WAS-- AND SHE KEPT IT

INCREDIBLY SECRET.

WE HAD THE PREMIERE, AND SHE WAS

NOT AT THE PREMIERE, EVEN

THOUGH-- SHE WOULD SHOW UP AT

THE PREMIERE THEY'D SAY, WHAT,

ARE YOU DOING AT THE PREMIERE?"

AS SOON AS THE CAT GOT OUT OF

THE BAG THEN --

>> SHE COULD SHOW UP.

>> THEN IT WAS AMAZING, AND

PEOPLE WERE FREAKED OUT AND DUAL

DUALLY SURPRISED.

>> Jon: THE C.I.A. CANNOT

KEEP THEIR PEOPLE FROM BEING

OUTED.

HOW DO YOU, IN A CAST AND A SET

AND WITH ALL THE PEOPLE--

>> WE FREQUENT AS A CAST, FAR

FEWER VENEZUELAN PROFT TIEWTS

THAN THE C.I.A., JUST AS THE

GROUP.

>> Jon: IT'S MORALITY, GOOD

LIVING.

>> AS A GROUP.

BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S SOMETHING WE

DECIDED.

IT'S NOT UNIQUE.

I MEAN MOST SHOWS-- IT'S NOT

LIKE CLAIRE DANEZ COMES ON AND

SAYS LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT NEXT

WEEK'S SHOW.

WHO IS ON IT.

>> Jon: IF THEY GET SPECIAL

GUEST STARS THAT'S BIGGEST PUSH,

THE ADVERTISING IS LIKE-- THEY

WILL RELEASE A SPATE OF GUEST

STARS THAT'S COMING ON AS

PROMOTIONS.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE VERY CONFIDENT

IN YOUR STORYLINES AND ACTORS TO

NOT WANT TO USE THAT AS A

COMMERCIAL AS OPPOSED TO LETTING

IT PLAY OUT.

>> I THINK THAT'S SORT OF STUNT

CASTING IS ONE WAY TO THINK

ABOUT IT.

WE LIKE KEEPING IT UNDER WRAPS.

>> Jon: SMART MOVE, MY

FRIEND.

AND YOU'RE HEADING OFF NOW,

YOU'RE GOING TO INDIA.

>> INDIA.

>> Jon: WITH ASSIF MANDVI.

ASSIF MANDVI AND JON HAMM ARE

GOING TO INDIA

( CHEERING )

TO SHOOT-- YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE

IN AN ASHRAM.

>> WE'RE ACTUALLY GETTING

MARRIED.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: IT WOULD BE NICE.

THE COULDN'T HAPPEN TO TWO

BETTER PEOPLE.

>> I KNOW!

IT'S AN EXCITING FILM BASED ON A

TRUE STORY ABOUT AN AGENT WHO

GOES TO INDIA TO TRY FIND TWO

CRICKET PLAYERS WHO CAN PLAY

BASEBALL.

IT'S A TRUE STORY.

ONE OF THE GUYS IS STILL IN THE

MAJOR LESION AT A TRIPLE

A LEVEL.

THEY FOUND TWO KID, EXPAEN 17,

TOOK THEM OUT OF INDIA.

THEY DIDN'T SPEAK ANY EXWHRSH.

THEY NEVER PLAYED BASEBALL BUT

THEY HAD THE RAW TOOLS --

>> THEY COULD BRING A

90-MILE-PER-HOUR FASTBALL.

>> YES, BUT IT'S A VERY

DIFFERENT-- YOU WERE A BIG

CRICKET GUY BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL.

>> Jon: OH, HUGE!

>> IF THERE'S ONE THING I KNOW

ABOUT JERSEY IT'S CRICKET CRAZY.

( LAUGHTER )

GLI COULD EAT 10 OF THEM AT ONE

SITTING.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

WAIT A MINUTE!

>> Jon: THAT'S THE JERSEY

THING.

ARE YOU A BASEBALL GUY, A

BASEBALL FAN?

>> I AM, I'M AWE HUGE ST. LOUIS

CARDINALS FAN.

>> Jon: I'M SORRY, I

COULDN'T HEAR THAT.

>> THAT WAS I OF A NICE RIVALRY

IN THE 80s OPINION YOU GUY WON

ONE WORLD SERIES AND THEWENT TO

LOU.

>> Jon: AND THEYOU MEN MORE

IN THE 90s.

I WAS REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU.

WE'RE THINKING ABOUT STARTING A

TEAM AGAIN.

>> YOU SHOULD GET ANOTHER NEW

STADIUM.

>> Jon: AND MAYBE WE SHOULD

MODEL IT AFTER EBBET FIELD FOR

NOW REAL REASON.

IT'S MODELED AFTER THE DODGER

STADIUM FOR NO REASON.

THERE WAS A JACKIE ROBINSON

ROTUND RA, BUT WHEN YOU FIRST

WALK IN THERE, YOU'RE LIKE I

DON'T KNOW WHERE I AM.

>> THERE WAS NOT A GARY CARTER

MULLET STATION.

CLEON JONES LYING IN THE BACK OF

THE STATION WAGON.
