“Seinfeld” cast reuniting: “Curb Your Enthusiasm”

Sometimes headlines just write themselves, people. Entertainment Weekly broke the news Thursday afternoon that all the four co-stars of Seinfeld — Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards — will appear together in the upcoming seventh season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. Of course, the gang has reunited before to provide commentary for the Seinfeld DVDs, and it's not a surprise that they'd go to bat for Seinfeld co-creator Larry David's Curb, especially since it will mean they won't have to play their TV personas but rather an improvised version of themselves. Which, for Seinfeld himself, will be meta. Though truth be told, Seinfeld, Alexander and Louis-Dreyfus all have been on Curb before. So, in this case, really, curb your enthusiasm, sit back and enjoy the show.

The 10-episode seventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will debut on HBO later in 2009.
