Are you ready for some pretty, pretty, pretty cool news? Larry David recently told an audience that he has not given up on more Curb Your Enthusiasm. According to La Weekly, David said, "I haven't given up the hope," which caused the audience to erupt with applause. "If I don't get that kind of feedback, honestly, I wouldn't have thought of [bringing it back] any more. I actually feel badly I don't have shows for them." Praise whatever lord you believe in; we may be getting more misadventures of our favorite social assassin, Curb's Larry David. The HBO comedy has been around for eight seasons, beginning with a 1999 TV movie. The primary cast included David, Jeff Garlin, »
When it came to the future of HBO’s “Curb,” which quietly trailed off after season 8 with no confirmation as to whether or not it would continue for a ninth, David said, “After eight seasons on ‘Curb,’ I’m just not sure my ideas are gonna be good enough for a whole season.” When a heckler called out, “Yes, they will!” David replied, “I’ve been heckled a lot, but that was the nicest one.”
“I feel bad that I don’t have shows for them,” he told Steinberg of obsessed series fans, “and I haven’t given up the hope.”
The last episode of Curb aired on September 11, 2011. To date, there have been »
Don’t worry, Curb Your Enthusiasm devotees: Larry David hasn’t forgotten about you. During a Q&A session in Los Angeles on Sunday night, he was asked about the future of the beloved HBO show, which hasn't been on air since 2011. “After eight seasons on Curb, I’m just not sure my ideas are gonna be good enough for a whole season,” he said. (When a heckler shouted, “Yes, they will!” David responded, sweetly, “I’ve been heckled a lot, but that was the nicest one.") However, it looks like there might be hope for the hecklers yet. “I feel bad that I don’t have shows for them,” he said of the series' diehard fans, “and I haven’t given up the hope." Neither have we, Larry. Neither have we. »

Larry David: “I haven’t given up the hope” for another “Curb Your Enthusiasm” season The crowd erupted Sunday night when David made that comment about “Curb” in a Q&A session with David Steinberg. "If I don't get that kind of feedback, honestly, I wouldn't have thought of (bringing it back) any more," he added. "I actually feel badly I don't have shows for them." George Zimmerman’s family wanted to get him a reality show to “rebrand” his image Zimmerman’s family felt the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot and killed Trayvon Martin could have his image rehabilitated via reality television. "I learned a lot from watching 'Keeping up with the Kardashians,’” said his brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., in an interview with GQ.

There was no curbing the enthusiasm of audience members during the Q-and-a session portion of Sunday’s Citi Presents Larry David and David Steinberg in Conversation. Some of the more cringe-worthy moments: three women begging for hugs from Mr. David after propositioning him for dates (he obliged the hugs), one guy asking him to autograph a DVD copy of season 2 of “Curb your Enthusiasm” and then bum rushing the stage, and an aspiring female comedian desperately pleading for David to have a conversation with her “in real life,” a request that drew equal parts awkward laughter and boos. Of course, the gruff Emmy-winning “Seinfeld” co-creator handled it all with signature bone-dry wit, at one point telling a fan, “Thank you for that idiotic question.”
Produced by Carolines on Broadway’s live entertainment division and held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown L.A., it was the unexpected bursts »

Larry David recently rewrote the rulebook on TV reunions when he staged a comeback for Seinfeld within Curb Your Enthusiasm. That idea seems to have rubbed off on the Friends personnel – ironic really, as David has accused them of plundering his sitcom in the past. With the 20th anniversary of the mates-based smash in peoples’ minds we’ve seen Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reconvene on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Now David Schwimmer has reportedly signed up to appear as himself in Episodes. The fish-out-of-water BBC comedy, created by the Friends team of David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and starring Matt LeBlanc, is entering its fourth series and it seems they are celebrating the Big Two Oh by getting Schwimmer back to reminisce about Ross.
The source for this sensational story? Erm, The Sun. But it’s a likely bet that Schwimmer would be amenable to the idea. He »

Larry David "quit" Seinfeld for the second time following a meeting with NBC execs about the fledgling sitcom's upcoming third season in 1991. In conversation with frequent collaborator David Steinberg at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, the comedian and showrunner recalled that before the meeting, executives from Seinfeld producer Castle Rock Entertainment told him, "Look, just do us a favor, Ok? Just don't say anything." The network's ideas were universally terrible, David said, "but I kept quiet." In the parking lot after the meeting, he told Jerry Seinfeld and Castle Rock he was quitting.

In case you were wondering why Jerry Seinfeld never had the inimitable Joan Rivers on his acclaimed web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, it turns out... He had been planning on it. Sadly, Rivers passed away before they could tape an episode together—and Seinfeld just revealed that rather crushing bit of news today. While our collective hearts hurt thinking about what a great, great installment that would have been, it was also very touching to hear that Jerry knew that Joan was a must-have guest. Past guests have included fellow comedy icons such as Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, David Letterman, Jay Leno and Larry David. "I just came across this heartbreaking text on my phone from »
Throughout the 71st Venice Film Festival, which wrapped on Friday, the expectation was that the Golden Lion for best film would go to Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance,” starring Michael Keaton. But the jury headed by Alexandre Desplat did the unexpected and gave the Lion to another bird with a lofty title, Swedish director Roy Andersson’s wildly funny “Pigeon On a Branch Reflecting On Experience.” “Birdman” received no awards. A series of painterly, often inter-connected tableaux showing “what it’s like to be a human,” “Pigeon” is both philosophical and absurd, suggesting comedic influences ranging from Monty Python to Jacques Tati to Larry David, though in accepting the award, a reportedly emotional Andersson named the Italian neo-realist Vittorio De Sica as his primary influence. Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky was awarded the Silver Lion for best director for his “The Postman’s White Nights, »

Joan Rivers, who died yesterday at the age of 81, was an unstoppable performer who made an indelible mark on the entertainment industry. In addition to her stand-up performances, hosting gigs, and other appearances, she also popped up on a number of TV shows, both as herself and as assorted characters. Here are just a few of her best.
1. "Suddenly Susan" (1999)
Kathy Griffin played the (naturally) acerbic best friend of Brooke Shields in this long-running sitcom, and Rivers had a recurring guest role as her onscreen mom. Check out the clip below, and then read Griffin's tribute to her friend and idol.
2. "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2002)
This appearance was a meta moment, showing Rivers doing her red carpet thing to comedian Richard Lewis, a regular fixture on Larry David's anxiety-fest of a show. The two were old pals in real life from the stand-up circuit. Rivers gets some real zings in during this short clip, »

The Latina actress-dancer-director-choreographer (say that five times fast) is perfect for ABC’s daytime talk show. Here are seven reasons why.
1. She’s not a stereotypical or “cookie-cutter” Latina.
The native New Yorker defies common Latin stereotypes— the sort of which is commonly perpetuated on television. (You know: young and sexy with big boobs and bigger hair, with little talent to speak of.) Now, it’s no secret that The View »

Keaton got his start on "Mister Rogers," though, most of his work was surprisingly behind the scenes. It really wouldn't be until 1982 that the actor would break out in Ron Howard's "Night Shift," and a few years later, his career went into overdrive. After collaborating with Tim Burton on "Beetlejuice" (1988), the director cast him as the legendary Bruce Wayne in "Batman" (1989). This fall, he revisits his superhero past in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the acclaim is already rolling in.
2. His father worked as a civil engineer and surveyor, while his mother was a homemaker. »

David Hasselhoff on Thursday compared his upcoming U.K. TV comedy series Hoff the Record to Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, saying the semi-fictional show is "kind of a highlighted version of my life." Describing the show that will air on British comedy network Dave as mostly improv-driven, he said Curb is one of his favorite shows along with old British comedy Fawlty Towers. "We have taken kind of a Larry David style," he said about the series' approach. "Almost everything in the show has happened to me." He also quipped: "I think my whole

Deadline announced today that actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace (who served as communications director for President George W. Bush) will be taking over the View hosting spots vacated by Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy after they were fired last month. They’ll join Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg as hosts for the show’s upcoming eighteenth season, which will also have a new studio, set, logo and behind-the-scenes team. It was announced yesterday that Perez would also be starring opposite Larry David in his new Broadway play, so hopefully he'll stop by for some chitchat? »
