Denzel Washington, star of Remember The Titans, one of the most influential football movies of our time, visited the Dallas Cowboys practice on Saturday.

Most surprisingly however, it wasn’t Denzel with the hook up. Instead it was his son who pulled it all together. J.D Washington, who stars as Ricky Jerret in HBO’s Ballers, once played with Cowboys fullback Tyler Clutts in the UFL. Who knew?

Denzel spoke with the Cowboys before practice and was quick to say he’s only got love for the Cowboys.

“First of all, I’ve been a Cowboy fan my whole life. I’m talking about Duane Thomas. I’m talking about Walt Garrison, Calvin Hill, Tony Dorsett. So I’ve been a fan for a long time. Just to be out here is just fun for me.”

Oh, and in case you’re wondering what actual NFL players think about Ballers? Clutts was all for it.

“I think it’s extreme but there’s a lot of truth. It’s a good show. I’m really happy that he got it.”

Here’s a glimpse in case you haven’t seen it. Or, decide for yourself.
