Don King actually plays a character named Don Cash in the episode "Down for the Count". This episode suffers from a malady that was common to episodes of Miami Vice after the first two seasons. It's kind of a victim of its own success. The episode is packed full of people from the boxing world. Tex Cobb is the only halfway decent actor out of the bunch, though Don King is entertaining delivering what is essentially a monologue to Crockett and Tubbs, but not as entertaining as if the words were the spontaneous product of his own mind. A lot of these episodes from the second half of the series are packed full of stars. Anyone and everyone wanted to be part of Miami Vice. This does have one of the better plots of the third season, though.
