Being just outside of Hollywood, it's understandable that celebrities might converge on Dallas Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, Calif.
And yet, despite not being selected by HBO for this season's version of "Hard Knocks," Jerry Jones is not going to miss an opportunity to feature his team on national television.
On Tuesday, the stars and crew for the FX hit series "The League" arrived at Cowboys camp to shoot footage for their upcoming fourth season.
The show, which follows a group of friends who run a competitive fantasy football league, filmed scenes for the new season on the sidelines of Cowboys camp.
Actors Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Jonathan Lajoie, Stephen Rannazzisi and Paul Scheer donned credentials around their necks as their characters assessed the Cowboys on the field.
Several NFL players have made guest appearances on the show over the last three seasons, including Antonio Gates, Chad Johnson, Josh Cribbs and Matt Forte ... and there are even theories on the web that suggest appearing on the show leads to a "Madden-like" curse for players.
Let's pray that's not true in case any scenes were shot with any specific Cowboys players.
This was the second celebrity sighting in the last two days. Actor Rob Lowe attended Sunday's team scrimmage at camp.
There have been no reports on which episode was being filmed or when the footage will premiere on the show.
But, here's hoping that Tony Romo and company can help lead either Pete, Ruxin, Kevin, Andre or Taco to a league title and the coveted "Shiva Trophy" this fall.
Season 4 of "The League" is set to premiere on FX in September.

Dallas Cowboys running back Demarco Murray’s rookie season turned many heads in Dallas and around the league. Everyone knew that he was an excellent college running back coming out of Oklahoma, but no one saw Murray rushing for almost 900 yards in just 13 games.
But now that he’s put up number like that, expectations have risen and the comparisons have begun. And in Dallas, there’s...
Mackenzy Bernadeau is finally practicing in pads with the Dallas Cowboys.
Bernadeau signed an $11 million, four-year contract with $3.25 million guaranteed during free agency in March. But he missed all offseason workouts because of hip and knee surgeries, then started training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
When Dallas practiced Tuesday afternoon, Bernadeau was...
Here we go again with Kevin Ogletree. This guy seems to remain at the top spot for the number three receiver position every year for the past 4 seasons.
Why? In my opinion he has done nothing to prove he’s even worth remaining on the team, let alone earn the three spot. There’s a reason the Cowboys went and signed veteran Laurent Robinson last year, and there’s a reason...
According to receivers coach Jimmy Robinson, Kevin Ogletree is the leading candidate for the No. 3 receiver role in Dallas.Fantasy Spin:Given Miles Austin's injury-prone status, picking Ogletree could be a valuable late-round selection. Ogletree has just 25 career receptions in three seasons for the Cowboys, but could jump up on fantasy radar screens in 2012 as Laurent Robinson...
Dallas running backs coach Skip Peete told Clarence E. Hill Jr of the Star-Telegram that he believes Demarco Murray could run for 1,200 yards or more.Fantasy Spin:While we aren't willing to go that far, it goes to the mindset of the Cowboys' staff that Murray is the team's primary back and Felix Jones the change-of-pace back.
Cowboys running back Felix Jones could be facing his last season with the star on his helmet. He's well aware of that possibility. Jones is in the last year of his rookie contract after being drafted in the first round in 2008 out of Arkansas. He certainly didn't do himself any favors by coming to training camp and immediately failing the team's conditioning test the...
The bizarre billionaire owner and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, said on Monday that unhinged wide receiver Dez Bryant needs to remain strong throughout the season and stop fading down the stretch. “What I want him (Bryant) … Continue reading →
They still got me returning punts Juan…
Everyone who has been to Cowboys training camp has said the same thing: “Dez Bryant is the best player in camp.” After the incident with his mom it has been nothing but good vibes from Dez. It’s never been a question of talent, which he has an abundance of, it has been nagging injuries, disappearing acts in games, and mental breakdowns...
The Dallas Cowboys might have just struck gold.
Undrafted rookie Cole Beasley out of Southern Methodist University is quickly becoming a household name in the Dallas metroplex.
Beasley made headlines recently when he decided to quit the Cowboys training camp. After meeting with his family, Beasley returned to the team.
Head coach Jason Garrett expressed to Beasley that the...
It’s still just preseason Juan…
Miles Austin is already having hamstring issues in camp. He missed 6 games in 2011 and was limited in others by pulled hamstrings in not one, but both legs. In the 10 games he played in he was good for 10 PPG, which was 18th among WRs. I have to admit that this latest hamstring injury is scaring the sh*t out of me. LoRo leaves 11 TDs behind...
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins wasn’t cleared by Dr. James Andrews to practice get back on the field and take part in practice.
“Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins wasn’t approved by Dr. James Andrews to resume contact in practice, according to a source.
“Jenkins, who underwent shoulder surgery, visited...
The Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones love what they’ve seen from running back DeMarco Murray. The thing that really stood out to Jones was that he can carry the ball between the tackles.
“The thing that excited me the most was the question mark on him: ‘Was he a good inside runner?’” Jones said. “We saw that he could carry the mail inside. We didn’t know...
The Dallas Morning News reports that receiver Kevin Ogletree has the lead for the No. 3 job behind starters Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. Ogletree is competing with Dwayne Harris, Andre Holmes, Tim Benford and Cole Beasley for the role. Source: CBSSports Attached Thumbnails
Amendola had triceps surgery and was placed on injured reserve in October, ending his season. He also battled a dislocated elbow and didn't get a reception after week 1.The former star of the Dallas Cowboys training camp burst onto the scene (at least in PPR leagues) in 2010 hauling in 85 catches for 689 yards with 3 TDs.
Colts and Peyton Manning enthusiast Rob Lowe stopped by Cowboys training camp to visit with the coaches and players. He wore a hat supporting the home team, although I doubt anyone would have been offended by Colts apparel.
