Poker Stars Signs Actor Jason Alexander
He Joins Mats Sundin, Orel Hershiser as Celebrity Representatives
PokerStars signed actor and poker buff Jason Alexander to its team of celebrity spokespeople. He will promote the PokerStars brand in online and live poker events, including the 2009 World Series of Poker and PokerStars global poker tour circuits.
“PokerStars has very graciously asked me to sign on as one of their official players,” Alexander said. “I am very flattered and happy to be playing for a real quality site and with the kind of professionals that remind me every day how truly mediocre I am at this game. But I'm learning. And now I can learn from some of the best.”
Alexander joins a PokerStars team of "international celebrity ambassadors" that includes NHL player Mats Sundin, former tennis pro Boris Becker, and former Cy Young Award winner Orel Hershiser.
Alexander will play online as “J. Alexander.” A long-time fan of poker, Alexander has played in a handful of major events, including the 2008 NBC Heads-Up Championsip (where he wore PokerStars gear), and he was a mainstay on the old poker show Celebrity Poker Showdown.
Like Hershiser, he is represented by Poker Royalty.
