Jerry goes Hollywood

by - April 7, 2009 - Posted in On Jerry

There are a lot of fine books written about the Dallas Cowboys and by former Cowboys, including “Wright Up Front” by Rayfield Wright “The Landry Legend” by Bob St. John and “Boys Will Be Boys” by Jeff Pearlman.

Knowing Jerry and his thirst for exposure, it is only a matter of time before the transition is made to the silver screen.

The question is who would play Jerry Jones onscreen?

My vote is for Billy Bob Thornton. He has just the right mix of gaunt, smarm, and accent to really nail Jerry’s essence.

Any other suggestions?

Billy Bob Thornton could do it. I think the guy who played George on Seinfeld would do an adequate job. He would have to wear a toupee of course, slim-down a little, and wear elevated shoes. But the reason I pick this guy is he does very well at playing an insecure and self-centered man who always tries to be somebody that he's not and gets exposed for who he really is over and over again. The only exception is that George's antics are funny to watch. Jerry's antics aren't so funny.

Speaking of Seinfeld, imagine if there were a spoof done of Jerry's antic, ala George Steinbrenner. THAT would be downright hilarious. The voice-over, of course, would have to be done by none other than Gordon Keith, whose fake Jerry voice is nothing short of genius.
