Viral Video (And Perfect Casting): Mark Cuban on "Entourage"

Of course, it makes perfect sense for Mark Cuban (pictured here) to appear in a very long and involved cameo as himself on the HBO original comedy series “Entourage.”

Heck, the fun-loving Internet billionaire could easily slip into the pack of young Hollywood dudes on the show and seem part of the gang.

Cuban–who is always up to some kind of amusing stunt (for example, see his dance stylings on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2007)–actually has already been in two episodes on the premium cable television service and it looks like he will also make the finale.

The story line has Cuban vying to nab a tequila company in Mexico out from under the nose of a very befuddled Turtle.

Enjoy:

And here is Cuban also playing himself in the video of an interview I did with him at the seventh D: All Things Digital conference in 2009:

What’s happening is that we might, in fact, be at a time in our history where we’re being domesticated by these great big societal things, such as Facebook and the Internet. We’re being domesticated by them, because fewer and fewer and fewer of us have to be innovators to get by. And so, in the cold calculus of evolution by natural selection, at no greater time in history than ever before, copiers are probably doing better than innovators. Because innovation is extraordinarily hard.
