Jerry, George, and Newman Have 'Seinfeld' Reunion in Super Bowl Ad

It turns out that Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander's visit to Tom's Restaurant a few weeks ago was not a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode or a Super Bowl commercial — it was a both. In the ad, Jerry and George squabble over the point of the mumble and George's not so great reputation as a Super Bowl party guest, then get interrupted by the one and only Newman. You can watch the full Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode with Jerry and Jason in character over on the Crackle website.

Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld's "Mysterious Project" Is a Broadway Play

During his Reddit AMA last week, Jerry Seinfeld hinted at an upcoming collaboration with Larry David. "We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can't reveal what it is at this time," he said. "All I can do is tell you that it's big, huge, gigantic." While details on the project are still slim, Showbiz411 spoke to David about the collaboration and he had this to say:

Larry told me: “I’ve written a play.” A play? For, like, Broadway? “Yes.” And Jerry would star in it? “Maybe. We’re talking about it.”

Seinfeld's worked on Broadway both onstage and behind the scenes; he [...]

'Late Show with David Letterman's Most Memorable Moments, Year by Year

After NBC chose Jay Leno to become the new host of The Tonight Show, David Letterman launched Late Show with David Letterman on August 30, 1993, changing the late night television landscape forever. On the verge of becoming the longest tenured host in late night history next year, Letterman has proven that his ironic and cantankerous sense of humor could work and be allowed to evolve at the earlier hour. While he continues to believe that he is living in his shadow, he's the contemporary equivalent of what Johnny Carson used to be, the standard and implied influence for all current and fast approaching late night talk show hosts.

Watch Jerry Seinfeld and Tina Fey Enjoy Some Cronuts and Wheat Milkshakes

Of course you want to watch the new Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode with Tina Fey, who doesn't have a driver's license, almost ran herself over with a car once, and admits to Seinfeld that she doesn't really miss the stressful 30 Rock work environment.

Jerry Seinfeld on Why Modern Late Night Talk Shows Make Him Sad

The Hollywood Reporter has an excellent, lengthy interview with Jerry Seinfeld out today, and in it, he talks about why modern late night talk shows just aren't the same:

"Most talk shows leave me with a sad feeling, and I don't think that's the goal. When I was a comic in the 1980s, I was on the road somewhere every day, and I'd get back to the hotel and it was Carson and Letterman, and I looked forward to that all day. Those shows made me happy. I'm not quite sure what happened. It's probably just proliferation and fragmentation …

These shows are promotional vehicles for the industry. They're not talk [...]

Jerry Seinfeld Confirms a 'Seinfeld' Reunion Is Happening "Very, Very Soon"

So it's not a Super Bowl commercial, it's not a Broadway play, and it's not a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode, but whatever Jerry Seinfeld was up to with Jason Alexander and Larry David two weeks ago was definitely a Seinfeld reunion-related affair. According to Variety, Seinfeld confirmed the reunion on the "Boomer & Carton" radio show this morning but wasn't budging on the details, except for describing the project as "short-ish form" and a "one-and-done" thing involving Larry David and his former Seinfeld cast mates that will be available somewhere sometime "very, very soon." It seems safe to assume that the reunion will in fact [...]

Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Larry David Were Filming Something at the Restaurant from 'Seinfeld' This Week

Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, and Jason Alexander were all spotted at Tom's Restaurant, the Manhattan diner used frequently as "Monk's Café" on their sitcom Seinfeld, on Monday. NY Daily News reports that cameras were shooting them inside and outside the restaurant and that production workers said the three were working on a Super Bowl commercial. There's no word on who the commercial is for or if Michael Richards or Julia Louis-Dreyfus are involved, but I guess we'll all see on Super Bowl Sunday.

During a Reddit AMA last week, Jerry Seinfeld teased people, saying that he and Larry David "wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually [...]

The Hollywood Reporter just put out their Emmys portfolio featuring interviews with a bunch of people like Tina Fey, Mitch Hurwitz, and Hank Azaria. Here's one with Jerry Seinfeld, who's nominated for his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, in which he talks (at the end) about what the Seinfeld characters would be up to now. "It's never going to happen," he says about a reunion special (although the gang did a faux-Seinfeld reunion as a Curb Your Enthusiasm story arc in 2009). On the characters' lives in 2013, Seinfeld says, "They're gonna be somewhat dysfunctional, as we remember them. I imagine there'll be some kids, some [...]
