Hilarious GIFs That Make Us Miss ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

When news hit earlier this week that Seinfeld co-creator Larry David would be headed to the stage for his Broadway debut — Fish in the Dark, written by David and starring the comedian as a very Larry David-ish character — it sparked sheer dread in the hearts of Curb Your Enthusiasm fans everywhere. According to the report, David hasn’t ruled out doing a ninth season of Curb, but he’s “not going to mentally do that to [himself] right now.” Even if he did do another season, “this play would push that schedule back.” Doesn’t David realize this Broadway gig is basically a rehash of Curb season four and the Producers storyline? While we pine for more shenanigans from everyone’s favorite social assassin, here are some hilarious Curb GIFs to soothe the pain (and few stills for good measure). We’re lamenting a serious lack of Cheryl, Susie, and Leon GIFs out there. Internet: you’re about three years late, but you have a job to do. … Read More

Exclusive Supercut: Actors’ Pre-Fame Roles in Woody Allen Movies

This just in from the Mostly Unobserved Anniversaries Department — yesterday marked 20 years since the release of Manhattan Murder Mystery, Woody Allen’s cracklingly entertaining 1993 reunion with Diane Keaton. But that film also marked the film debut of one Zach Braff, who (circle of life) will star in Allen’s forthcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Bullets Over Broadway. Braff is just one of the many actors who got an early break in a Woody Allen movie; it’s a rite of passage for a young actor, and everyone from Sylvester Stallone to Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Larry David to Henry Cavill turned up in Allen films early in their careers. Here are some of the best appearances by actors in Woody movies, before they were famous: … Read More

Larry David’s ‘Clear History’ Shouldn’t Work, But It Does

HBO’s Clear History is a unique, sometimes peculiar, and altogether satisfying hybrid of two very different branches of the network’s original programming arm. On one hand, it is an original movie, directed by a name filmmaker (Greg Mottola, who helmed Superbad, Adventureland, and Paul) and featuring a juicy ensemble including Amy Ryan, Jon Hamm, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, and Eva Mendes. On the other, it’s an extension of their comedy series brand, something like a triple-length episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm (featuring that show’s star and co-writer, Larry David), with a splash of Eastbound and Down thrown in (via co-star Danny McBride). It sounds like it shouldn’t work. It does, magnificently. … Read More

Flavorwire Interview: Jeff Garlin on ‘Curb,’ ‘Dealin’ with Idiots,’ and Why He Hates Michael Bay

Jeff Garlin’s giggle is one of the greatest things on this earth. If you’ve seen him on Curb Your Enthusiasm or listened to his wonderful By the Way podcast, you’ve heard it; it’s a full, hearty, robust laugh, inexplicably high-pitched considering the deep, Midwestern tones of his normal speaking voice. It’s not the kind of thing you can fake — when he giggles like that, he’s genuinely amused. So it was one of my greatest achievements in life thus far to have prompted that giggle in our recent telephone interview. … Read More
