Isn't He Loyal?

I found out today through the Bornintoit.com web site that Jack Nicholson, who starring in a new Martin Scorsese film called "The Departed," was supposed to wear a Red Sox hat in a scene in the film (it's set in Boston). Nicholson refused, citing his loyalty as a Yankee fan for not wearing it. He ended up wearing a Yankee hat in the scene.

Yankees Fan Jack Nicholson Refused To Wear Red Sox Cap in New Film

Lifelong New York Yankees fan Jack Nicholson refused to wear a baseball cap sporting the badge of his team's rivals for his role as a Boston, Massachusetts, gangster in new movie The Departed.

Director Martin Scorsese suggested the movie legend wear a Boston Red Sox cap for one pivotal scene, but backed down when New Yorker Nicholson insisted he wouldn't wear the head gear out of loyalty to the Yankees.

Instead, the star dons a Yankees cap in the scene, according to magazine Sports Illustrated.

We all know that Yankee fans are obnoxious, but I guess this shows even the most famous ones are too. Hey, it's just a role in a movie, Jack...

He's originally from North Jersey, breeding ground of Yankees Fans:

Anyway, Nicholson is a celebrity poseur, like what appears in The Bronx;

When what happened to the Atlanta Braves this season, takes place in The Bronx, like the other "Poseurs Du Jour", he'll disappear, as well as 50% of Yankee Ticket Sales.

Much like Jim Calhoun, coach of the UCONN men's basketball team, who, when invited to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium after his (our) team won the NCAA tournament, said, "NO!!!" And good for him......
