WGBH Studios host Boston Celtics' Jason Tatum

Terry Quinn

The Boston Celtics' Jason Tatum was in the house at WGBH Studios this week.  The small forward was in the starting lineup for the filming of a TV commercial to promote How to Train your Dragon: The Hidden World, the upcoming new film from DreamWorks Animation. Taking a break from his workout at The Auerbach Center to appear in the spot, produced in partnership with ESPN, Tatum joined a crew of more than 50 technicians, actors, and ad agency representatives for the 12-hour shoot, which required the Celtics star to answer reporters’ questions during a mock, postgame press conference while interacting with “Toothless,” an animated dragon character from the DreamWorks film. The film will be released in February and the commercial will air on ESPN.
