What’s the deal with the Seinfeld reunion? And with airline peanuts?
Days after word spread that Jerry Seinfeld, former costar Jason Alexander and Seinfeld cocreator Larry David had met up to film something at Tom’s Restaurant in New York City (aka the defunct sitcom’s fictional “Monk’s”), NBC’s onetime poster boy has deflected two popular theories about what he has cooking.
Appearing on WFAN’s Boomer & Carton show Thursday morning (watch video here), Seinfeld shot down the suggestion that the reunion was on behalf of a commercial (for the Super Bowl or otherwise) as well as denied that it was for his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee web series.
That said, he playfully teased, “[It’s] not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”
Seinfeld went on to confirm that Alexander indeed reprised his role of George Costanza for the… whatever… and that other Seinfeld characters appear; David does not appear on camera; the project is likely a “one-and-done” effort that will run in “short-ish form”; and that they filmed at “other locations” besides the diner (but not at TV Jerry’s apartment).
What do you think Seinfeld & Co. are up to?
