Mike Ditka to appear on 'Entourage' series finale

This July, HBO's Entourage returns for an eighth and final season, and the series finale will include a cameo by … former NFL head coach and ESPN NFL analyst Mike Ditka (bet you didn't see that coming).

Ditka spilled the beans during an appearance on "The Waddle & Silvy Show."

"This just came up spur of the moment, and actually you know, it was a good experience," Ditka said. "I didn't realize how big a deal it was, I'll be honest with you. I'm kinda naïve about those things, and I understand it is a pretty big deal, and yes, I think it is very nice and [Wisconsin athletic director Barry] Alvarez is on it with me so both of us are there. …

"[The role] goes beyond me and my altar boy image, but I do have a couple of lines in there that might test a few people."

The list of famous faces from the sports world who have appeared on the show over the years is long and distinguished. That said, Ditka isn't the first person with ties to the Bears to turn up on Entourage: in Season 7, LB Brian Urlacher discussed investment opportunities with Turtle

Even if the recent progress towards a new CBA falls through in the coming weeks, at least we'll have Ditka's cameo to look forward to. So there's that.

In the meantime, a partial list of Entourage cameos by various sports figures. (Please note: there's a lot of naughty language so keep that in mind before clicking the YouTube links below. Hey, it's HBO.)
The only thing missing? Mike Tahoe and CJ Hunter. Because every show needs mustachioed cops.
