Jerry Seinfeld Tried to Convince Chris Rock to Take Over for Letterman

"I was talking to Chris Rock the other day about taking the Letterman job. I was trying to convince him to take it. He says, 'Absolutely no possible way.' Both of us are out when you hear 'makeup everyday.' You hear that and I'm out."

-Jerry Seinfeld in an interview with Esquire on why he doesn't consider being a celebrity a burden, the new season of Comedians in Cars, and why he wanted Chris Rock to take over CBS's Late Show.
