Jerry Seinfeld‘s thoughts on Man of Steel might have been the most popular quote from the comedian’s recent Reddit AMA, but the biggest news was the announcement of a mystery reunion with Larry David. David co-created Seinfeld with the comedian and took some of the show’s sensibility — David’s half of it, at least — to HBO with Curb Your Enthusiasm. The pair remain friends, and they collaborated on a massive Seinfeld/Curb crossover a few years back. Seinfeld revealed in the AMA the pair are working on a “big, huge, gigantic” project. The identity of that project has now been revealed.
According to Showbiz 411, Larry David revealed he’s been working with Seinfeld on a stage play. Here’s the exchange between the reporter and David:
“I’ve written a play.” A play? For, like, Broadway? “Yes.” And Jerry would star in it? “Maybe,” he said. “We’re talking about it.”
Seinfeld is no stranger to Broadway. He produced and directed Long Story Short, a one man show performed by Colin Quinn in 2011 which eventually made it to HBO. That’s not to say, if this does happen, it’ll be a one man show or make it to cable but at least there’s a precedent.
I’ll line up for anything these two guys do, especially together, so I’m going to be keeping an eye out for news of this. What would be your ideal David/Seinfeld stage collaboration?
