Ever since Jerry Seinfeld teased Reddit viewers earlier this month with news of a "secret project" with "Seinfeld" writing partner Larry David, there's been rampant speculation over their new, covert collaboration. As of this morning, we now we have some specifics regarding the nature of their reunion.
Appearing on the “Boomer & Carton” radio show on WFAN (a CBS affiliate in New York), Seinfeld answered questions regarding his recent Reddit disclosure as well as a photo that's been circulating on Twitter. The photo, taken by @ClubAliPP shows Seinfeld with Jason Alexander on Jan. 13, walking into Tom's Diner (the ubiquitous diner in "Seinfeld"), dressed conspicuously like their former characters, Jerry and George Costanza.
In the interview, Seinfeld admitted that not only would Jason Alexander would be reprising his role as George Costanza, but that other "Seinfeld" characters would be returning as well. He said the project was not a commercial, or an episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and that the nebulous, “short-ish form” venture would be released “very, very soon.”
So, what could it be? If it's not a full-fledged "Seinfeld" reunion and it's not a Super Bowl commercial, could it be a long-form plug for Kenny Rogers Chicken? An abridged production of "Sack Lunch"? Whatever it is, it's bound to be better than "The English Patient."
