Jerry Seinfeld wants to display Seinfeld set in museum
Plus: The comedian says a 'Bee Movie' sequel would make the original 'less iconic'
Seinfeld ended in 1998, but Jerry Seinfeld never really got over his character’s New York apartment. In a Reddit AMA that Seinfeld held to promote the upcoming season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the funny man revealed that he still has set pieces from the long-running series, and he’s looking to share them with fans.
“I actually have quite a bit of [the Seinfeld set], and we’re looking for a museum that wants to display it,” Seinfeld wrote. “I have the couch, I have the two blue stools, I have the table and chairs; the coolest thing I have is the door, which we never repainted in nine seasons. It has every scuff mark that Kramer put on it with all those crazy entrances.”
Seinfeld also addressed a question about the possibility of a sequel to his 2007 animated film Bee Movie. In recent years, the movie has exploded in popularity online, developing a meme-like status on sites like Tumblr. In his response, Seinfeld said that he’s familiar with how the movie has been received online, and that he’s considered making a sequel, but didn’t want to soil the cult status of the first one.
“I considered [making Bee Movie 2] this spring for a solid six hours,” Seinfeld wrote. “There’s a fantastic energy now for some reason, on the internet particularly. Tumblr, people brought my attention to. I actually did consider it, but then I realized it would make Bee Movie 1 less iconic. But my kids want me to do it, a lot of people want me to do it. A lot of people that don’t know what animation is want me to do it. If you have any idea what animation is, you’d never do it.”
The eighth season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will premiere on Crackle Thursday, June 16.
