When an image of Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander walking outside the iconic Tom’s Restaurant hit Twitter earlier this month, Seinfeld reunion rumors started flying—which Seinfeld initially teased with his allusion to a “secret project” in his recent Reddit AMA. Now, though, we know the truth: we’re getting a Seinfeld reunion. Of sorts.
Seinfeld appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show earlier this morning, sitting down to an onslaught of questions related to the above mentioned photo. When pressed, Seinfeld reluctantly gave up most of the goods, saying that he and Alexander were, in fact, filming something when the Tom’s Restaurant photo went up on January 13. Though, he does refuse to say exactly what it is.
It is not, however, a commercial, or an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, but Seinfeld did say that Alexander was playing his iconic George Costanza character, and that other Seinfeld characters would be involved. The project also will be a “short-ish” form one, never to happen again, and involves Larry David. Nothing wrong with a little mystery.
Luckily, we won’t have to grapple with that mystery long. Seinfeld says the project will be released “very, very soon.”
