The star power of Los Angeles and Boston is at stake in a friendly wager between the cities' mayors over the outcome of the Lakers-Celtics championship series.
If Boston repeats its 2008 victory over Los Angeles, the Lakers' best-known fan – Oscar-winning actor Jack Nicholson – would be asked to don green and appear in a commercial extolling the highlights of Beantown.
And if the Lakers capture their 11th championship in L.A., Boston natives Ben Affleck and Matt Damon would be asked to make their own commercial about the highlights of Southern California.
While he isn’t wearing green, McHale’s a big fan of Matt Damon, with whom he worked on Stephen Soderbergh’s "The Informant!" "It is no coincidence that Matt Damon is a movie star because he has everything you need to be a great movie star," said McHale. "He's good looking, he’s incredibly smart, he’s incredibly talented and funny, and he just has that streetwise thing that you need to be able to maintain a career like he has."
