Cheadle wanted no part of this wager.

All right, it’s time to unveil my Cheesy Mustache theory regarding three of the biggest movie stars in the world.

It is my contention that some time ago, perhaps during the filming of “Ocean’s Thirteen,” Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon made some sort of wager saying that by 2009, each of them would have to star in a movie while sporting an incredibly cheesy mustache. The loser would have to…I don’t know, maybe break out into song for no good reason the next time he was on “Oprah”?

Here’s Brad in “Inglourious Basterds”


And here’s Matty in “The Informant!”


And finally, here’s Georgey boy in “The Men Who Stare At Goats,” opening Friday.


I rest my case.

    I think Damon is the winner of the cheesiest…

    So who is the loser? The one with the least cheesy mustache? Perhaps there’s a fourth party in on the bet that we’ll see dancing on “Oprah” soon enough.
