Career Advice for Seinfeld's fabulously wealthy four

Career Advice for Seinfeld’s Fabulously Wealthy Four

Posted on

Sure, the Fabulously Wealthy Four can afford to spend the rest of their lives lounging around, Kramer-like. But if the Seinfeld cast members do decide to keep working, here’s EW’s unsolicited career advice:

JERRY SEINFELD needs to dust off his tux. Seinfeld says he’s going back to stand-up—a smart move. But he should do us all a favor and host every one of those normally painful awards shows: the Emmys, the Oscars, the Grammys, the VH1 Fashion Awards, the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, yada, yada, yada.

MICHAEL RICHARDS needs to get serious. To distance himself from Seinfeld‘s high-haired, pratfalling wack ball, Richards should do some Harold Pinter on Broadway. Or take over Geraldine Ferraro’s seat on CNN’s Crossfire.

JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS needs to make it on her own. Though Louis-Dreyfus has said she’d never do a spin-off (meaning no Elaine!), the actress shouldn’t leave the small screen. Just as long as she doesn’t do another sitcom about a single, neurotic, urban-dwelling woman. Perhaps an updated Green Acres costarring Crazy Joe Davola?

JASON ALEXANDER needs to sing and dance. After all, if Mandy Patinkin can do it on a TV series, why not Alexander? Since Chicago Hope‘s musical episode scored such healthy ratings, the tap-happy Alexander should star in his own Doc Rock series.
