Just in time of the premiere of the new season of Crb Your Enthusiasm, one of its main characters will also release a book. J.B. Smoove is cashing in on the popularity of Leon Black by having him write a book. The Book of Leon will be published by Gallery Books reports The Hollywood Reporter via Associated Press. The publisher says the idea stemmed from a quote from Larry David that said Leon has so much to say and maybe he should put it all down in words. The Book Of Leon comes out on October 24.
It's going down. For real. Ever since HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm was said to be coming back, no news of the ninth season had been released. Now, we have casting. Deadline reports that both Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson will play themselves again. What's more is that they're slated to join the full time cast made up of Larry David, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines and Susie Essman. Fans of the first eight seasons will know that both actors appeared as themselves from time to time but now that they're big players in the new season, this should open up more possibilities for stories with the main cast.
