Well, at least that’s what’s happening in the fictional Larry David bubble of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He gets Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards to play themselves in his incredibly neurotic alterna-world.
HBO sent me an advance copy of the first three episodes of the new season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The “Seinfeld” plotline pops up in episode three. David wants to get back with his ex wife, played by Cheryl Hines, and pictures having her as George Costanza’s ex wife (because you know, George is an extension of Larry.)
That third episode is extremely funny. My favorite part is Jason Alexander telling Larry David that he wants to do a reunion to make up for the finale everybody hated. Larry, of course, doesn’t acknowledge that’s the case.
