Catching up with 'Seinfeld''s stars

Catching up with ”Seinfeld”’s stars — Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards give us the lowdown on their return to TV

Posted on

What were their favorite episodes? Does Michael Richards still slide into rooms? And what are the odds they will re-reunite? We grill the Seinfeld quartet about their pasts, presents, and futures.

Jerry Seinfeld
Currently Exec-producing the 2010 NBC reality series The Marriage Ref.
Most underrated Seinfeld episode ”’The Pothole,’ for the intertwining of the stories and figuring out a way to get Newman to burst into flames. That really was a Road Runner moment, when you get to have one of your characters totally engulfed in flames, and the next week they’re back as good as new.”
What line do fans yell at you most? ”Where’s Kramer?”
Where do we find Jerry in the reunion show? ”He has responsibilities now he never dreamed of.”
Most surreal moment shooting the reunion ”Just leaning against that kitchen counter one more time in between takes, and where it would hit that certain part of my lower back. I never thought I’d feel that again.”
Percent chance of another Seinfeld reunion ”0.0.”
Little-known fact about Jerry ”He has very soft feet,” says Louis-Dreyfus.

Jason Alexander
Currently Touring with his one-man show The Donny Clay Experience.
Which TV cast would you like to see reunite?Star Trek. I know two of the cast members are deceased — I can fill in for both.”
Favorite Seinfeld moment? ”The boss calls me into his office and says, ‘It’s come to my attention you’ve been having sex with the cleaning woman on the desk in your office.’ There are a thousand possible responses. George goes with ‘Is that wrong? Should I not have done that? If anybody had told me that was frowned upon…”’
What line do fans yell at you most? ”Shrinkage.”
Where do we find George in the reunion show? ”To put it in Yankee terminology: If George were to hit one out of the park, it still wouldn’t be a home run.”
Percent chance of another Seinfeld reunion ”20.”
Little-known fact about Jason ”A very skilled magician, and a completely inept martial artist,” says Seinfeld.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Currently Starting season 5 of CBS’ The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Which TV cast would you like to see reunite?Combat! Have you watched that show? Spectacular.”
Most surreal moment shooting the reunion ”Sitting down at the booth in the coffee shop.”
What line do fans yell at you most? ”Get out!”
Last time you did the Elaine dance? ”The last time we shot it.”
Where do we find Elaine in the reunion show? ”There’s a new person in her life that’s a surprise to everyone.”
What about Seinfeld makes you cringe now? ”My pregnant self, topped only by my giant hair.”
Percent chance of another Seinfeld reunion ”3.5.”
Little-known fact about Julia ”For reasons only I would know, her cleavage smells really good,” says Alexander. ”Actually, I’m probably not the only guy that would know, but of the [cast] I’m the only guy.”

Michael Richards
Currently Living in New York, writing.
What line do fans yell at you most? ”Giddyup!”
Where do we find Kramer in the reunion show? ”On the make.”
Favorite Seinfeld moment? ”When the car didn’t start at the end of ‘The Parking Garage.’ That was a mistake. We were supposed to get in and drive off. If you look closely, everybody’s laughing in the car. That show had a life of its own and we were just hanging on.”
Last time someone asked you to do a Kramer entrance? ”Last night. I came through a door and some girls go, ‘Look — it’s Kramer!’ Then they said, ‘You didn’t come through the door the way you should.’ And I said, ‘Oh, God, I’m so forgetful,’ and just went on my way.”
Percent chance of another Seinfeld reunion ”0.1. A little bit of optimism.”
Little-known fact about Michael ”He is an infamous mispronouncer of words,” says Louis-Dreyfus. ”Still can’t say ‘California’ quite right.”
