Don't be surprised if you see Westside star Will Hall in his undies chained to a lamp post on your way to brunch this morning. Last night the ultimate stag do was held for Hall, organised by Shortland Street's first plastic surgeon, Dr Drew McCaskill, aka Ben Barrington. Spy understands throughout the night Barrington, Hall's best man, will have had plenty of time for cosmetic enhancement research.

The theme for Hall's stag was the 90s movie The Big Lebowski. The "dare you" factors of the night were based on the movie's most famous scenes. The stag was set to start at a West Auckland bowling alley skulling White Russians.

Hall might have had to employ "method acting" to start to play out the movie's scenes. Instead of asking a lady for her underwear, he had to find someone to give him a pair of white Y-fronts. There is a stunt in the movie in such bad taste all Spy can say is it involves knocking on strangers' doors.

Let's hope he wasn't planning to recreate the famous scene in which actress Julianne Moore paints naked.


In stark contrast, Hall's gorgeous fiancee, Sarah Davies, is to have a high tea next weekend. The pair, both 35, will tie the knot in Rarotonga before Hall starts filming the second season of Westside, where he plays the role of Detective Mike McArthy.

Hall told Spy of NZ On Air's decision to fund a second series: "I am ecstatic that Ted West and his gang will still get to pull the wool over my eyes. At least I hope they will. I haven't seen the script yet."

Westside had only six episodes in season one but 10 shows are planned for its second season.
