Jerry Seinfeld Had Planned a Joan Rivers Appearance on ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

16 September 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joan Rivers had a lot to keep her busy before her Sept. 4 death — including an appearance on Jerry Seinfeld’s webseries “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Seinfeld revealed in a Facebook post on Monday.

Seinfeld shared a text message on the show’s Facebook page revealing that Rivers was set to have a guest appearance on the season premiere of the next season. However, the post says that he later got a call from Rivers’ reps saying the appearance would have to be postponed due to the throat procedure that preceded Rivers’ death.

“I would have loved to have shown another side of her,” reads the post, which can be read in full here. “I wanted to tell her how much I admire all she had accomplished, especially in the latter stages of her career.”

The text message is dated Aug. 19, nine days before the routine surgery during which Rivers went into cardiac arrest. »

Jerry Seinfeld Reveals That Joan Rivers Was Going to Be a Guest on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: 'She Was One of the Greats'

15 September 2014 7:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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 »

Ex-'Seinfeld' Writer on New Novel and Favorite George Costanza Moments

11 September 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Here's a book that's not about nothing. Former Seinfeld writer and co-executive producer Peter Mehlman released his first novel, It Won't Always Be This Great, on Monday. The novel's tale, narrated by a Jewish podiatrist living in New York, begins with an uncharacteristic act of vandalism, and spirals out of control from there. There's a false arrest, flirtations with an attractive young patient and the looming threat of the narrator being found out. And while Mehlman says Seinfeld didn't inspire the novel any more than any of the many other parts of his life, there's plenty of neurotic humor for

Jerry Seinfeld Makes It Rain on Strippers

7 September 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Chris Rock spoke to Vulture earlier this week about his new comedy, Top Five, he predicted that Jerry Seinfeld's cameo would be "the big shock of the movie. I mean, it’s Jerry Seinfeld in an R-rated movie, so it’s kind of like a special effect in itself." So of course I had my eye out for Seinfeld onscreen as the movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival late last night. He shows up near the end, along with Adam Sandler, at a strip club bachelor party for Chris Rock's famous-comedian character, Andre, who has just released a movie about the Haitian slave rebellion in a bid to get taken seriously, and whose career is so close to Dancing with the Stars desperation that the best thing going for him is his upcoming, to-be-televised marriage to a reality TV star (Gabrielle Union).

Patrick Warburton Will Return as The Tick for Amazon

31 August 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

According to People.com, Patrick Warburton is set to reprise his role as the title character in The Tick, which is being revived on Amazon.

The Tick is a comic by Ben Edlund that was first adapted as a cartoon series in the mid ’90s before being turned into a live-action comedy. Despite receiving critical acclaim, the show only lasted one season before being cancelled by Fox in 2002. The show likely lacked the action and drama more mature audiences were expecting going up against a show like Smallville, which also debuted in 2001. It was also a little too adult for young fans of the animated TV series. The fact that Fox didn’t own the rights to all The Tick characters made the show feel even less familiar to those fans as well, with Die Fledermaus and American Maid being changed to Batmanuel and Captain Liberty. However, the series has »

'The Tick' TV Show with Patrick Warburton Revived on Amazon?

30 August 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"Spooooon!" The Tick is back to save the day! More than 13 years after it first debuted on Fox, the short lived superhero spoof The Tick may be returning for all-new episodes on Amazon. People reports that Patrick Warburton will even be back to play the lead character.

Riding high on his fame as David Puddy when Seinfeld came to a close, Patrick Warburton channeled that same persona into the short lived Fox superhero series The Tick. It only ran for 9 episodes, and was often sighted for being a little too much like Seinfeld in tights, with its four costumed crime fighters squabbling about their daily routine in a local diner. While it was quickly canceled, it has been a mainstay on DVD and streaming services for the past decade, and it has amassed a quiet fan base of devotees.

The Tick was based on a popular comic book by Ben Edlund »

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Anna Paquin

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars

The Performer | Anna Paquin

The Show | True Blood

The Episode | “Thank You”

The Airdate | August 24, 2014

True Blood’s series finale may have been divisiive — the fan war continues to rage — but there’s no two ways to look at Paquin’s heartbreaking final performance.

Sunday’s episode found Sookie Stackhouse bouncing between both ends of the emotional spectrum, as she first struggled to accept Bill’s death wish, then helped him grant it, only to ultimately move on and find happiness with someone new.

Patrick Warburton Set to Return in The Tick

Don’t worry citizens, The Tick is back to save the day! Broad-shouldered Patrick Warburton only sported his blue antennae for one season the first go-around, but the critically acclaimed superhero parody is now being revived on Amazon, a source tells People. The cult-classic series is based on a comic book by Ben Edlund and was first brought to television as an animated series that enjoyed three seasons of success in the mid 1990s.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Facts: 21 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Veep' Star

29 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Arguably the greatest female comedic actor ever (she has the Emmys to prove it), Julia Louis-Dreyfus hardly needs an introduction.

At only 21 years old, the actress was cast on "Saturday Night Live," a Cinderella-like start for the young New York native. While the show didn't catapult her to fame, it was a stepping-stone that culminated with her landing the role of Elaine Benes on "Seinfeld" (1989 - 1998). Proving there's no "'Seinfeld' curse," Louis-Dreyfus has had plenty of success since the acclaimed NBC sitcom ended, raking in several Emmys along the way. Just this summer, she took home her latest trophy for her work on HBO's "Veep."

From her eyebrow-raising family background to her actress half-sister, here are 21 things you probably don't know about Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

1. Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus was born January 13, 1961 in New York, New York to Judith LeFever and Gérard Louis-Dreyfus.

2. Her parents divorced when Louis-Dreyfus was still just a baby. »

Watch: Jimmy Kimmel Stages Friends Reunion with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow

28 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with Seinfeld, NBC’s Friends is another 90s sitcom that’s destined to go down in history as one of the classics.  The show raked in a now-unthinkable 52 million viewers for its 2004 series finale, and since that time fans have been clamoring for some kind of reunion—most notably in the form of a Friends movie.  I'm a massive fan of Friends, but I think a Friends movie is a horrible idea.  Which is why I was delighted to see that on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel staged a mini Friends reunion of his own with the female half of the cast: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow.  The video is a fun watch, especially since Kimmel recreated Monica and Chandler’s kitchen to a T, and fans of the series will certainly be happy to see the aforementioned actresses reprising their roles—albeit with a Kimmel-esque twist. »
