Curiouser and curiouser!
When the image above hit the Internet – and Jerry Seinfeld himself alluded to a “big, huge, gigantic” project he recently wrote with Larry David in his January 6 Reddit AMA – the rumor mill began to churn wildly. Clearly, he and Jason Alexander were reuniting at Manhattan’s Tom’s Diner for a Seinfeld-themed Super Bowl commercial. Or maybe an episode of Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” though that wouldn’t necessarily explain the whole Larry David angle.
The truth? Seinfeld says there is some sort of Seinfeld reunion on the horizon… though he denies it’s either a big game ad or a webisode.
“It’s neither,” he told the hosts of a local New York radio show Thursday – before adding a mysterious addendum: “But, it is not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”
Oh, okay, that clears everything up!
Following his barely there explanation, Seinfeld’s interviewers did get him to spill a few more tiny details about the project. So here’s what we do know: It’s some sort of “shortish-form,” “one-and-done” video. Alexander is, indeed, playing George Costanza. Filming took place in more than one location, though not at Seinfeld’s Upper West Side apartment. Other Seinfeld characters are involved, as is Larry David, though David doesn’t appear on film. And Seinfeld assures that we’ll get to see the result “very, very soon.”
All right, time to turn the speculation up to 11: What the heck are Seinfeld, David, and Alexander up to? And are we just making much ado about nothing?
