Some Sort of Seinfeld Reunion is Actually Happening
Jerry Seinfeld has revealed that the mystery project him and Larry David have been working on will include Jason Alexander and other cast members of Seinfeld
This must be fate, as I just re-watched season seven of Curb Your Enthusiasm and thought to myself, how sweet would it be if they ACTUALLY did a Seinfeld reunion?
Well now, according to Variety, something of sorts is actually happening.
We had recently reported on Larry David's AMA event on Redditt, where he hinted about a new project with Seinfeld himself, but not much else. Then, we saw Seinfeld and Jason Alexander walk into Monk's Coffeeshop (real name: Tom's Diner) last week. Now, while speaking on WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" radio show on Thursday morning., Seinfeld has confirmed the project himself.
He added that it would not be a commercial, nor an episode of his webisode series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and that Jason Alexander would be reprising his role as George Costanza.
He also mentioned that other Seinfeld characters would be involved. As long as Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are involved, I'm happy. Though I would love to see Estelle Harris.
Seinfeld said the project is “short-ish form,” a “one-and-done” type of thing that involves Larry David, and that it will be out "very, very soon." And I thought I was satisfied with the reunion on Curb. No words to describe my excitement here.
