Not because he's Zoolander handsome or anything, but because police helpfully shut down the Mass. Ave. Bridge from Boston into Cambridge this morning so he could film a scene there for a movie.

The writers know their Boston. One scene featured a Cumbie's, Lechmere and an old 'BCN billboard. Even one local pol got a shoutout, indirectly, when Marge marveled over one of City Councilor Matt O'Malley's free sunscreen dispensers: "So progressive!"

Boston’s South Shore is home to two varieties of money mysteries. There’s a big, almost unsolvable whodunit. Then there are thousands of smaller cliffhangers easily solved if the gumshoes kept the legwork simple.

While you can only choose one restaurant for a meal, the abundance of choice reduces the risk your palate will be disappointed.
