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.
He's back. Once a writer now a host Larry David returns to Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest The 1975. In these promos with Leslie Jones, David goes about putting the show down in a very Larry way by breaking the fourth wall. It's great and, if it's any indication, this weekend's show is going to be pretty, pretty, pretty good. Sorry that won't happen again.
Kevin Pollack is trying to prove that Misery Loves Comedy. Many of his comedic friends would have to agree. Don't believe such an anecdote? Why not have Jimmy Fallon, Tom Hanks, Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan, Judd Apatow, Lisa Kudrow, Larry David, Marc Maron, Jon Favreau, and dozens of others explain it to you? Misery Loves Comedy is meant as an effort to bring audiences closer to performers. Tribeca Film Festival gets the official release but it's already out on iTunes and Amazon if you're inclined to see it at this moment in time. Check out a sneak peak at the film below:
