John Fox Checked Into Hospital As ‘Johnny Drama,’ Channeling HBO Hit Series ‘Entourage’


It makes sense that John Fox‘s rally cry would have been “Victory!” after the Denver Broncos trounced the Tennessee Titans on Sunday — channeling the fictional character Johnny Drama is nothing new for the Broncos head coach.

Fox reportedly assumed the name of the Entourage character when he checked into a North Carolina hospital to undergo heart surgery last month, according to The Denver Post. Johnny “Drama” Chase, played by actor Kevin Dillon, is the brother of main character Vinny Chase on the hit HBO show, which has a movie in the works.

When word got out about Fox’s pseudonym, at least one actor from the show was intrigued.

The Broncos’ 51-28 win over the Titans on Sunday did bring some drama as receiver Wes Welker sustained his second concussion in four games and Matt Prater kicked and NFL record 64-yeard field goal before halftime.
