Does anyone in Hollywood not play professional poker?

I'm starting to wonder if TV and movie stars playing poker is more than just an interesting trend. Maybe it's a requirement.

Jason Alexander recently popped up on my TV, not in a Seinfeld rerun or his recent appearance on Curb Your Enthusiasm but in the most recent World Series of Poker. And it didn't look as though he was there playing with his own money. He appeared to have his own sponsor and everything.

Here is ESPN's coverage of Alexander's elimination from the tournament. Watch for the fan at the end who accidentally calls him George. It's cringe-tastic.

Contanza has been playing poker for awhile and is actually good. He won a celebrity tournament about 3 years ago and beat Robin Tunney in the final table.

In the tournament you saw Ray Ramone, Brad Garrett, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon were all playing in that tournament.
