Kerkorian makes play for Jets

Now that Kirk Kerkorian is practicing his endzone dance, the New York Jets must be wondering if it’s time to go Hollywood.

The recently married, 82-year-old financier, who owns a 90% stake in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, has contacted the investment firm of Goldman, Sachs & Co. with an eye on the NFL franchise, which could sell for up to $500 million. Former owner Leon Hess’ estate has final approval of the sale, which could put coach Bill Parcells, QB Vinny Testaverde and wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson right in the hands of a Hollywood player.

The bidding war starts in earnest next week, when potential suitors will find a Jets prospectus in the mail. Others media titans circling the team include Cablevision’s Charles Dolan and N.Y. Mets co-owner Nelson Doubleday.
