New Delhi native Suraj Sharma had a steep learning curve when he signed on to play Rinku Singh in Million Dollar Arm, the Indian cricket player who became a Major League pitcher with the Pittsburgh Pirates. "I didn't know anything about baseball, and I don't like cricket," he admitted.

He had to bulk up, too. "I worked out a lot and ate a lot." Which sounds a lot easier than what he had to endure for his role as the stranded teenager in The Life of Pi - he lost nearly 40 pounds!
