Holy shit, guys, it's actually happening: According to Variety, that mystery project with Larry David that Jerry Seinfeld announced during his Reddit AMA earlier this month (and the reason he and Jason Alexander were spotted walking into the real Seinfeld diner a few days later) was actually a REAL LIFE Seinfeld reunion. Like, for real. Start freaking out, guys, because it's happening.
It was Seinfeld himself to confirm the news, on WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" radio show on Thursday morning. Though he didn't reveal any details about what the actual reunion is going to be, he did say the following (from Variety):
Seinfeld said the project was not a commercial or an episode of his hit Web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and while he would not give away much in the way of details, he did say that Alexander was playing his George Costanza character and that other “Seinfeld” characters were involved.
He described the project as “short-ish form,” a “one-and-done” thing involving Larry David in some way that will be made available “very, very soon.”
So, there you have it. Not quite the reunion we saw in Curb Your Enthusiasm, but also more of a reunion than an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee would be. Any guesses as to what they're planning?
