For the second time this year, a movie starring Jon Hamm has been set up for possible Academy Award consideration.

In Eastwood's flick, STL's No. 1 celeb plays an FBI agent investigating the pipe-bombing at Centennial Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Other stars are Natalie Portman, Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates and Olivia Wilde.
