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 [...]
"But I could have played Kramer for the rest of my life. That character would fit into every situation. There was a great universality to the soul of that character." — Michael Richards
"Nothing harmonized by a musical bond can be transmuted from its own speech without losing all its sweetness and harmony." — Dante

Rapper Wale released The Mixtape About Nothing in 2008, a hip-hop album that heavily sampled and referenced Seinfeld and even featured an appearance from Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Now, for his follow-up, Album About Nothing, he's got Jerry Seinfeld himself on board to make an appearance.

No word yet on when the mixtape will be released, but, [...]
As two neurotic, kvetchy comedy legends with strong ties to absurdism, Larry David and Woody Allen have a lot in common to the untrained eye. But you don’t really believe that do you? You do? Then come closer, friend. Come enter my apartment and see the truth. Look over the space, covered with newspaper clippings, empty ding-dong wrappers, and obsessively scrawled doodles of Larry David’s face. Sit for a moment and let me field-strip a revolver while I tell you just how wrong you truly are.

Jerry Seinfeld loves baseball and comedy and baseball comedy, which is why this Thursday he'll be appearing in Costas & Seinfeld: Who's on First? on the MLB network (the home of classic comedy). He told the New York Times that Abbott & Costello was a big influence on Seinfeld. Seinfeld points to Jerry and Kramer's "write off" conversation as maybe the closest they got to "Who's on First?"
