Having seen his team featured on two separate editions of Hard Knocks, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is no stranger to HBO. But he made his debut on the hit series *Entourage *on Sunday night, playing himself of course.
And there was no doubt that Jones was in character the whole way, alongside team spokesman Rich Dalrymple. In fact, in one scene shot at Cowboys Stadium (which of course they made sure and got a wide angle of the video board), it looked like Jerry Jones Jr. was in the background as Jerry was on the phone with super-agent Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven.
Oh, and if you're unfamiliar with the show, that's pronounced Ari, as in R.E. Of course, they wrote it in the script that Jerry pronounce his name like "Air-E" and that's when I knew Jerry was definitely in character.
Now his role in this episode, was dealing with TV rights for the entire league, but perhaps Jerry gave a hint of something we probably already knew, but isn't mentioned much. But Jerry did say in one of his line that he's "grooming his son" to take over as the general manager one day. We all figured that would likely happen with Stephen Jones at some point – who knows if that's sooner or later.
Anyways, if you're a fan of the show and the Cowboys, it was a nice little twist. If you don't like Entourage or simply don't get HBO, then I apologize because you obviously don't care for this blog. So, just hang in there – two more weeks to go.
