Larry David on 'Curb': 'I No Longer Feel a Need to Wrap Things Up'

17 December 2014 5:36 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Larry David admitted the odds are against another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, telling Bill Simmons in a recent chat with Grantland the line is about "six to one." While Simmons suggested one last 90-minute mockumentary to wrap up the beloved HBO series, David seemed unsure, recalling the negative reactions to the infamous Seinfeld finale.

"I got so much grief from the Seinfeld finale, which a lot of people intensely disliked, that I no longer feel a need to wrap things up," David said. When asked if he was still »

Larry David Says That a New Curb Your Enthusiasm Season Is Very Unlikely

16 December 2014 1:09 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Larry David has some bad news if you’ve been waiting and hoping for Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9: it’s probably not going to happen. After saying that he felt “bad that I don’t have shows for [the fans]” and that “I haven’t given up the hope” back at the end of September, David now appears moving away from the idea of a new season of Curb. “I guess, right now, the odds would be against it, probably 6 to 1,” said David in a recent interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons. Furthermore, when Simmons brought up the idea of even doing a 90-minute special to “wrap things up” for the characters on Curb Your Enthusiasm, David cited the Seinfeld finale as a reason why he’s hesitant to try to give Curb a more definitive ending. “Well, you know, I got so much grief from the Seinfeld finale, which a lot of people intensely disliked, »

Larry David says new 'Curb' season very unlikely (and you can blame the 'Seinfeld' finale)

16 December 2014 12:05 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Another reason to dislike the Seinfeld finale: Fans' reaction to the closing episode of NBC's iconic sitcom isn't helping the odds of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm ever coming back. Curb creator and star Larry David was asked by Grantland about the possibility of Curb ever seeing a ninth season. David has often seemed pessimistic about the acclaimed and popular show returning, but he sounds even more against the prospect than usual. "I guess, right now, the odds would be against it, probably 6 to 1," said David, who is prepping his new upcoming Broadway comedy show, Fish in the Dark. »

Top Five – The Review

11 December 2014 9:57 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When a big milestone approaches it’s common for most of us to look back and reflect on our lives and career. With the big 5-0 looming, Chris Rock, one of the smartest and funniest stand-up comedians, has done just that with Top Five (not a reference to the B-day, but a quick listing of favorite music artists used as an ‘ice breaker’, like “Where’d you go to school?” here in St. Louis). Oh, and this is the third feature film he’s directed (he wrote this one, too). Mr. Rock has been part of the national comedy scene for nearly 25 years since he was one of the cast members of TV’s “Saturday Night Live”, with a few movie bit roles under his belt (Beverly Hills Cop 2). He’s gone from cocky kid with a mike to screen veteran, so  now what does he want to say about »

Jb Smoove and Ben Vereen Talk 'Pootie Tang,' Fire Extinguishers, & Their 'Top Five' (Exclusive)

10 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who's in your top five?

To get ready for Chris Rock's highly-anticipated new movie, Mr. Moviefone (Kevin Thompson) caught up with "Top Five" stars Jb Smoove and Ben Vereen. The results were inspiring -- and hilarious -- as Smoove ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") recounted a crazy story about selling fire extinguishers door-to-door in his youth. And that was after he discussed his lasting love for the cult-classic "Pootie Tang." Some fires just don't go out.

Meanwhile, stage actor Ben Vereen ("Pippin"), who plays Chris Rock's father in the film, discussed the importance of always working on your craft as an artist and being "a life threat" and "an artist giver." Wise words from an industry legend.

"Top Five" comes to theaters this Friday, December 12. Check out the exclusive interviews below.

It recently emerged that Bob Dylan once tried to start up a band featuring both the Beatles and the Stones. And now theres news of an equally half-baked endeavour: an attempt to make a slapstick comedy with celebrated Us TV network HBO.

According to Larry Charles, a one-time writer on Seinfeld who went on to direct Borat and Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dylan approached him back in the 90s for a meeting to discuss a potential slapstick comedy TV series, after getting deeply into Jerry Lewis.
