Actor Troy Garity, son of Jane Fonda, plays a superstar sports agent on the new HBO show Ballers. His co-stars are huge, literally. The protagonist of the show Spencer (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) is a retired NFL player who’s now working as a financial advisor to professional athletes. Garity is in good shape, but he’s gangly compared to the actors playing football players.
The one actor who is physically smaller than Garity is Marlo Thomas. That Girl is making a special appearance on the show to play Jason’s mother. She wants to introduce Jason to her new boyfriend, David. “Please be nice to him, he’s been very kind. You know it hasn’t been easy since your father left me.” Garity delivers a great punch line after that set-up. Ballers airs Sundays at 10pm on HBO.
