‘Entourage’ for a Day

October 28, 2007 9:00 PM

The "NFL Total Access" crew paid tribute to celebrity guest Jerry Ferrara Friday, as "Entourage’s" Turtle joined the team for a day to give his "Celebrity Picks" of the week. The Total Access team surprised Mr. Ferrara with its own "Entourage" spoof, with host Rich Eisen as the Vincent Chase character, Rod Woodson as Drama, Adam Schefter playing Eric and Marshall Faulk tackling the role of Turtle. Sports super-agent Drew Rosenhaus made a cameo as the Ari-esque agent. When joined on the set by Mr. Woodson and Mr. Faulk, Mr. Ferrara said he was honored that one of his favorite football players of all time took on his role in the spoof. An NFL fanatic, Mr. Ferrara manages four fantasy football teams and made the shock pick of the week, predicting the Washington Redskins would prevail over the undefeated New England Patriots. He later said he’ll look like a genius if he’s right and joked maybe it would lead to more regular appearances on NFL Net­work or a job during his hiatus from the show.
