The Emmy-winning actor -- and longtime Boston sports fan -- will play the legendary coach of the Boston Celtics, who won nine NBA championships. And won seven more as general manager. Chiklis tweeted of his casting: "Being from the Boston area growing up and having lived in LA for the past 30 years, this is a particularly special gig and role. Especially with this group of people. #Grateful."
