Larry David, the creator of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, had a brilliant idea to somehow reunite the cast of the hit show. Despite being against this idea years ago, David managed to get the cast members together on a totally different show as themselves. Read more about the reunion here.
About the Seinfeld cast reunion, David told Entertainment Weekly,
“It really exceeded my expectations, just in terms of how much I was going to get out of it and enjoy it and how it was going to turn out – it was a blast, it was hard to keep a straight face. I love that we managed an addition to the narrative of the show. There are some definite new elements to the story of these four people that are now part of the whole story – I thought this would be more of a stunt-type thing, but I feel like this is really part of the series now. I would call this a member in good standing with all the other episodes.”
Sure the actors may be only playing themselves, however on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, the Seinfeld crew drew in millions of viewers with the promotional tag line of “It’s not a reunion show, but it’s the closest you’ll get”.
Not only was it fabulous to see all the cast members on the small screen once again, it was even more satisfying to actually see Seinfeld’s apartment and the diner he frequented on the show.
Jerry Seinfeld said about the reunion, “I thought this would be more of a stunt-type thing, but I feel like this is really part of the series now. I would call this a member in good standing with all the other episodes.”
Now while you may have seen this reunion and are thinking that this is it? You are wrong. This plot is set to play out over four episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
