Larry David, co-creator and executive producer of Seinfeld, never wanted any part of it. Neither did the character he now plays on TV’s Curb Your Enthusiasm—Larry David, the co-creator and executive producer of Seinfeld, whose many, many interpersonal disasters make up the bulk of the HBO show’s story lines. Now the real David has agreed to a reunion of the legendary Seinfeld cast, who will appear in roughly half of this season of Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes, a plot detailing efforts to write and produce a Seinfeld reunion. “[H]e became interested in the idea when he began to think of it as a ‘show within a show’ that plays off of his curmudgeonly character on Curb,” writes the New York Times‘s Edward Wyatt. But while the David of reality might countenance the idea of bringing George, Jerry, Elaine and Kramer back together again. Curb‘s David never would. Indeed, says David: “My guy could well wreck it.”
Better yet, George, Jerry, Elaine and Kramer will be reuniting on Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
