Jeff Garlin Will Star in an ABC Pilot, But What Does That Mean for the Future of 'Curb'?

Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin has been added to the cast of a new ABC pilot called How the Hell Am I Normal?, according to Deadline. The family sitcom will star Garlin and Wendi McClendon-Covey (Bridesmaids, Reno 911!) as the "gruff but lovable" father and "in-your-face mother" of three eccentric kids. The show was created by Adam F. Goldberg (Breaking In, Still Standing), and the pilot will be directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, King of Kong). If How the Hell Am I Normal? gets picked up and ordered to series for the fall, it could mean Jeff Garlin won't be able to star in a hypothetical ninth [...]

Jeff Garlin Says There Might Be a Season 9 for 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

After every season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David says, "I never want to do this again," but the President of HBO claimed that this didn't happen for the first time ever after the most-recent season, and was quoted last year as saying he's "cautiously optimistic" about a Season 9 of the long-running pay-cable show. Today, Curb co-star/producer Jeff Garlin sounded optimistic when weighing in on the likelihood of a new season in an interview with The Austin Chronicle today:

The Chronicle: Has the door been closed on a ninth season?

Garlin: No, not at all. I say there's a decent chance.

Larry David is currently busy starring in his [...]

Jeff Garlin Creating a Sitcom for ABC

Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin is developing a new sitcom for ABC. He'll write, executive produce and star in the show, of which there are no details at the moment. Hopefully it's just 30 minutes of him and Larry eating at Palestinian Chicken every week.

Talking to Jeff Garlin About His New Earwolf Podcast 'By the Way'

There's a certain level of celebrity at which people don't do the podcast circuit – either because they're too busy or too famous – but Jeff Garlin's new show looks to be changing that, with a roster of guests made up almost entirely of the kinds of big names you rarely see on other podcasts. Debuting today on the Earwolf network, By the Way, In Conversation with Jeff Garlin is a conversation show recorded in front of a live audience at the Largo Theater in Los Angeles. For a little over a year now, Garlin has been doing these live shows with a different huge guest as his [...]

A Former Jefe Returning to 'Arrested Development'

Jefe? More like Jeff-e Garlin, who told Paste that he's currently filming Arrested Development: "Now am I in it? I don’t know if I’ll end up being in it, they might cut everything with me. But I am filming some episodes.” SOME episodes? Jeff's Mort Meyers only appeared in a handful of episodes the first three seasons, so this does imply he might have a slightly increased role. Maybe when Maeby got to the appropriate age, he did finally marry her.

Jeff Garlin on the Healing Power Of Comedy, Blow Jobs

Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin has struggled with compulsive eating, epilepsy, diabetes, attention deficit disorder, a heart defect and a stroke prior to the first season of Curb. You wouldn't think spending 12 hours a day with Larry David would be the cure-all, but there you have it. "If you watch the first season, I am so strokey," Garlin recalls in his interview with The Guardian, explaining how he subbed in a golf club for a cane. "It's funnier to walk with a golf club. But Curb was the best rehab I could have had . . . the [improvisation] alone did wonders." Currently preparing for a run of [...]

Jeff Garlin Has a New Earwolf Podcast with Big-Time Fancy Celebrity Guests

The podcast network Earwolf just announced today they're debuting a new show from Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin. Called By the Way, In Conversation with Jeff Garlin, the biweekly podcast is a series of recordings of onstage longform conversations Jeff Garlin has been holding at the Largo Theater in Los Angeles for about a year now.

The guests on the next two episodes are Lena Dunham and Jeff Tweedy, with conversations between Garlin and Conan O'Brien, J.J. Abrams, Michael Moore, Judd Apatow, Henry Rollins, Sarah Silverman, Mitch Hurwitz, Garry Shandling, and Zach Galifianakis already in the bank and [...]

So, Which Sitcom Actor Literally Kicked Matthew Weiner In the Ass?

Late last week, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner sat down with Jeff Garlin, of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame, at Largo in Los Angeles to discuss Alex Trebek, Conan O'Brien, TV recappers, and the end of Weiner's AMC show. Of the stories that Grantland's Lane Brown relayed along, the one that I found most fascinating was this blurb:

When Weiner was a writer on a network sitcom he refused to name, he had a dispute with one of the show's actors that ended in a bruised ass. Said Garlin: "I know you were kicked in the butt once. [Weiner] was writing on a show, and one of the [...]
