Is it a Super Bowl Commercial? Is it an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? Actually, it’s both. That mysterious Seinfeld reunion everyone has been talking about for weeks was both a preamble to Super Bowl halftime, and a tease to a full episode of Jerry Seinfeld‘s online show. It features Jerry Seinfeld as Jerry, Jason Alexander as George Costanza, and a familiar guest star. Check it out below. Read More »

What a great time for ’90s nostalgia. The Backstreet Boys are touring again, crop tops are coming back into fashion, and Disney is going ahead with the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World. Now we also have reunions from the Seinfeld and Full House casts to look forward to.
While appearing on the WFAN show Boomer & Carton yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that the “big, huge, gigantic” project he’s been working on with Larry David is indeed a Seinfeld reunion, as has been rumored. He declined to give details, however, saying only that Jason Alexander would play George Costanza, and that other characters from the show would also be involved.
Seinfeld said that the “secret project,” which he described as a “short-ish form” one-off, was neither a Super Bowl commercial nor a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode — but that “it is not not those things, either.” Whatever it is, we shouldn’t have to wait long to see it, as Seinfeld also promised that it’d be released “very, very soon.” [Variety]
After the jump, the men of Full House, who’ve already re-teamed for an Super Bowl ad, tease a potential sequel with “a twist.”

Jerry Seinfeld jumped on Reddit Monday to do a very extensive Ask Me Anything in which he covered a huge gamut of topics. He talked about a major problem he had with Man of Steel, working on a new project with Larry David, his favorite Seinfeld episodes, quotes, retrospective feelings on the finale, Bee Movie and more. Below, read the ten best moments from the Seinfeld AMA. Read More »
When something becomes as ingrained in popular culture as Seinfeld, anything the show touched became larger than life. George Steinbrenner, the Soup Nazi, “faking it,” the list of things Seinfeld defined or changed forever is long. Near the top of the list has to be Tom’s Restaurant, a diner in New York City that was shown in nearly every episode as the primary hangout of Jerry, Kramer, George and Elaine. Though it opened in the 1940s, fifty years later the show turned Tom’s into quite the tourist attraction.
Now, director Gian Franco Morini is exploring the history of that restaurant, both related to Seinfeld and not, in a documentary called Tom’s Restaurant. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

What happens when actor Michael Richards meets The Blacks or Krazee-Eyez Killa? Talk about Trial and Error. I’m pretty sure we’ll be satisfied by the results this fall, as the four cast members of Seinfeld are reuniting for multiple episodes of HBO‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm. While this marks Richards’s first appearance on the uncensored and legendary sitcom of Larry David (Seinfeld co-creator), Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have all appeared to play and send-up themselves during Curb‘s six-season run. According to EW, the cast hasn’t appeared together on a scripted TV series since their show’s underwhelming finale 11 years ago.
It’ll be veddy cool to see the old sparks fly inside the Bald One’s neurotic, mishap-prone world; but I’m possibly more excited just to see Leon (J.B. Smoove) talk shit and lady advice to Larry again. Let us know what you and Bill Gates think in the comments.
