Earlier this month, during a Reddit AMA, Jerry Seinfeld teased a “big, huge, gigantic” project that he and Larry David have been working on. Since then, madness. The first report was that it was going to be a Broadway play, which Larry David said he’s writing with Jerry in mind to star. Then photographers caught Jerry, Larry, and Jason Alexander strolling into Tom’s Restaurant, fueling speculation that the three were there to film a Super Bowl.
Well, it turns out that everyone was wrong. Probably. At least, that’s what Jerry Seinfeld said during a radio appearance this morning with Boomer & Carton on WFAN:
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.”
Okay, but notice what he didn’t say: he didn’t say it’s NOT Library Cop: The Musical. So there’s still hope. Fingers crossed.
