Larry David: “I guess the odds would be against” more “Curb Your Enthusiasm” – “probably 6 to 1”
Larry David tells Bill Simmons that he hasn”t given up on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but he says the “Seinfeld” finale “taught me a lesson that if I ever did another show, I wasn”t going to wrap it up.” When asked that it sounded like he wasn”t doing another season, David responded: “I guess the odds would be against it. I guess, right now, the odds would be against it, probably 6 to 1.” David also thinks too much time has passed since the last season. “Sometimes,” he says, “you”ve seen reunion shows on television and the actors look so much older than how you remember them in the show. And even though you can see that actor doing something else, once you put them back into that same environment with those other people, and they”ve all aged so much. It looks wrong. It seems wrong. Why are they doing this?” Still, David says he”s not ready to definitively end the series. “I”m still not prepared to say that I”m no doing it again, nor am I prepared to say that I am. So I don”t know,” he says.
