In a recent live conversation in Los Angeles, Larry David said, after eight seasons, and a lot of other competing projects, he’s just not sure if he’s got the ability or time to crank out good Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes. He’s spending some time on Broadway, and is notorious for putting out the show on his own schedule, ignoring the pleas of his fan base.

BUT, this isn’t a “no.” David said publicly, ““I feel bad that I don’t have shows for them, and I haven’t given up the hope,” so while we may not be getting any new awkwardness soon, we may get some in the VERY distant future.

Variety actually gives a pretty fun rundown of the chat, which featured attendees giving him positive heckles, asking him to follow them back on Twitter, and a bunch of other inane shit that would drive HBO Larry David crazy.

Larry David’s Going To Broadway Before Thinking About New ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Epsidodes http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/larry-davids-going-to-broadway-before-thinking-about-new-curb-your-enthusiasm-epsidodes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/larry-davids-going-to-broadway-before-thinking-about-new-curb-your-enthusiasm-epsidodes/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2014 16:34:30 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=263861 BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Who told Larry David it was ok to put his day job on the back burner to pursue new professional challenges? Ws it you? Because it’s SCREWING EVERYTHING UP.

Two days ago, it was announced that the Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm braintrust was heading to Broadway to star in a play about a death in the family called Fish in the Dark. Fine, whatever. Give something to the NYC tourists.

Welp, today it’s announced that with a March 5th premiere, and who knows how long the thing will run, David won’t be thinking about new Curb episodes until he’s shed this obligation. That’s bad, and it means it could be 18 months or so until we see his charming visage on TV. This isn’t the first delay in filming of the HBO comedy, and we can take solace in hoping that as long as he gets to set production of the show around his own schedule, he won’t have an excuse to ever stop doing it.

After eight seasons of shouting and taking wrongdoers to task over their etiquettal transgressions on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David needed to try his hand at something else. That something else turned out to be HBO’s Clear History, a new film in which David shouts and takes wrongdoers to task over their etiquettal transgressions.

More specifically, he stars as a marketing executive who sells his shares in an electric car company after getting into it with Jon Hamm. The car, of course, turns all of it’s investors into instant billionaires leaving David with nothing, forcing he and his deranged Love Guru-esque to flee to an island and make a new name for himself. Years later, when his rival Hamm also decides to move to the island David’s world is sent into a shouty tailspin. Bill Hader, Philip Baker Hall, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, and Amy Ryan also star. Also, in true Leon fashion, J.B. Smoove also decides to tag along. You gotta get in Jon Hamm’s ass, Larry.

Do you want to see Larry David play a neurotic rich guy? You probably have already, but you’ve never seen him do it with this much hair. You’ve maybe never seen anyone with this much hair. That alone is a great reason to check out Clear History. For the hair value, that is.

Also, Jon Hamm‘s in the film. You know, for the ladies. And also the homosexuals. And the straight men who can enjoy handsomeness without feeling threatened or weird.

Season 8 of Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres this Sunday on HBO and here’s a little hint of how you can expect Larry David to expose comedians for the societal evils they commit. So beware, those who take up two parking spaces or those who commit the “chat and cut.” There’s a lone man out there brave enough to stand up for us all. And he’s also willing to let Ricky Gervais know that he knows nothing about bread.

Fans of the HBO comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm” know that Larry David can do very little wrong. So it’s a no-brainer that this teaser will leave us all gasping for more. Not only does it give us a healthy helping of Larry David insanity (including, of course, a rolling-on-the-floor physical altercation), but glimpses of appearances be Paul F. Tompkins, Rich Sommer, and Michael J. Fox. Not to mention returning favorites like JB Smoove as Leon and Bob Einstein as Marty Funkhauser. I can’t wait for the new season, and neither should you. Where’s my check from HBO? OK, I’ll settle for free HBO.

In news that should excite all fans of great comedy, the (actually) universally beloved Michael J. Fox will be guest-starring on an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Hell. Yes. Here’s what Fox has to say about it:

“Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours.” The Curb subplot finds Larry believing that “I’m being symptomatic just to annoy him — a whole passive-aggressive thing. He’s complaining because I’m shuffling and making noise upstairs. It’s very funny.”

Well, I’m pretty excited about this. And apparently Michael J. Fox’s onscreen dad on “Family Ties” is making a guest appearance in a different episode as Larry’s dermatologist. Listen, HBO – since the world might be ending on Saturday, why not just show these episodes now? (TV Guide)

So far, just about everyone that’s been hired for the Farrell Brothers‘ modern day take on The Three Stooges is thought of as a TV actor: Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, Larry David, Stephen “7th Heaven” Collins, Sofia Vergara, and hot-because-of”GleeJane Lynch. Now they’re hiring a movie actor to be in their movie. Neat.

Craig Bierko has TV credits (of course), but he’s best known for roles in Cinderella Man and Scary Movie 4. He’ll play a villain named Mac in Three Stooges. Will this movie be a cinematic masterpiece on the level of Scary Movie 4? I’ll let the Academy Award voters decide.

Meanwhile, the producers have no “Moe” problems, now that Chris Diamantopoulos has been confirmed for the role of Moe. See what I did there? Cause I don’t. (Deadline)

The Three Stooges reboot was at one time going to be headlined by movie stars like Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro. However, after a succession of flops – bot the box office kind and the physical comedy kind – the Farrell Brothers are now casting the film solely by flipping channels. Will Sasso and Sean Hayes will play Curly and Larry (plus Larry David is playing a nun for some reason), and another 90s TV personality is ready to get nyuked.

Stephen Collins (“7th Heaven”) will play Mr. Harter, a character who attempts to adopt one of the Stooge crew at the orphanage. Sure, that sounds wacky enough. You may have seen Collins most recently in “No Ordinary Family,” which is tangling with that villain The Almighty Cancelator and looks to be headed for the same fate as “The Cape.” (Variety)

If you guessed “nun” when we were speculating which role Larry David would take in the Farrell BrothersThe Three Stooges, help yourself to a cookie because you were correct. But not a Tag-A-Long. We’re low on those and I love the little bastards.

That’s right. Larry David is finalizing his deal to play Mother Mengele, which will in no way put him in a bad position at his synagogue. Mother Mengele is the nun that runs the orphanage where the Stooges grew up and learned to raise carnage. I had guessed he’d play an abusive uncle who taught them their violent ways, so I was half-rightish. Which I feel is deserving of a CALLED DAT SHIT (kinda)! (Deadline)

Would The Three Stooges hit a guy with glasses? Answers point to yes.

There’s a role in the film for Larry David should he choose to take it. We don’t know exactly what that role is. Maybe he’s the guy that Sofia Vergara is trying to convince the Stooges to murder. Or maybe he plays an uncle from an older generation of Stooges who taught them their Stooge ways of verbal and physical abuse. Hate like that isn’t just born. It’s handed down from generation to generation.

Otherwise, let’s just expect him to play the guy who holds his arms awkwardly whenever on camera and looks like he’s going to crack a smile during the tensest moments. (EW)

Sorry, HBO yanked the video.i

Here’s our first good look at the havoc Larry David wreaks on the upcoming season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” In Season 8, the gang relocates to New York City because there’s really no place else like it. The city is dirty, it’s honest, and as Ana Gasteyer points out, it has ambient noise. All HUGE selling points this season. I’m a huge “Curb” fan but I have friends who cannot stand it. Whenever we get to arguing about the merits of the show, their chief criticism is always “not enough ambient noise.” Well, you can suck on an exhaust pipe now, haters. Season 8 will have ambient noise out the ass.

While they haven’t found the right knuckleheads for their Three Stooges film, the Farrell Brothers have mentioned a few of the folks who have been approached. Some are really interesting choices while the others are doo-doo.

Looks like they’ve moved away from trying to win an Oscar and have focused exclusively on comedic actors. While making the rounds for Hall Pass, the Farrellys have revealed the current state of casting. In competition for the role of Moe are Hank Azaria and Johnny Knoxville, Will Sasso leads the charge for Curly, and Larry has been offered to Larry David, Woody Harrelson, and Justin Timberlake.

Hmmm… really interesting choices in there. If it were up to me, I’d say Azaria, Sasso, and Harrelson are all perfect. As much as I’d like to see Justin Timberlake poked in the eyes, he’s just not the right fit. (via The Playlist)

RUN from his argument about why he didn’t steal your answering machine message! COWER in fear as he calls everyone at the party “full of shit!” Larry David is like a neurotic King Kong, and he’s coming to DESTROY the Big Apple… through loud complaints and hard-to-watch life decisions!

The above trailer is for the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and after last year’s much buzzed about Seinfeld reunion episode, David has a lot of momentum going into the new season. As we reported, Larry David is going to New York City this year, his spiritual homeland. It’s a testament to David’s unnaturally high level of neuroticness that in NYC, The Birthplace on the American Nebbish, David stands out like a socially awkward Cloverfield monster.

Welcome home, Larry!  (Cinema Blend)

The other day I had the opportunity to speak with comedian and actor JB Smoove about his current and upcoming projects, his unique approach to stand-up comedy, and a way of life that he defines as “The Ruckus.” You may best know JB as Leon, Larry David’s ex-brother-in-law, from The Black family on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He’s gearing up to shoot the 8th Season of “Curb,” but JB’s also got several other projects poppin’ at the moment. Take a gander at our conversation below.

SJ: Tell me about this new show you’re hosting, “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey.”

JB: Anytime Russell Simmons calls you and tells you he’s doing something you gotta do it. This show could have been about cake. It could have been called "Russell Simmons Presents Birthday Cakes" and you gotta consider it. So Russell calls me up and says I’m doing this new show and I’d love for you to host it. The El Rey is a historic theater in the Wilshire District of Los Angeles. So I’m hosting the show. It’s a version of Def Comedy Jam. It’s young comics, comics from all over, and I’m just the captain of the ship.

SJ: Are these up and coming comics? Will we know some of the names?

JB: Mostly up and coming comics, which is great. Everybody killed it. Everybody murdered it, man. You notice how the world has changed? How bad words have become good words? They killed it. They murdered it, man.

SJ: So if we tune in we can expect a whole lot of killing and murdering.

JB: Killing and murdering, man. Verbal ass-whoopings. Comedians, that’s our thing. The worse condition we leave you in, the better. Comedians try to murder you, they try to kill you. They try to make you piss on yourself. We try to make you shit yourself. We are horrible. Comedians have bad intentions for a good audience. You make someone spit their drink out, that’s pretty common, but if you can make their whole bod break down. Murder ‘em, kill ‘em, they fall off their chair, they spit their drink out, piss on themselves, shit on themselves, and get thrown out the club. The full f*ckin’ monty, man.

SJ: What’s it like having Russell Simmons as a boss? Does he make it rain constantly?

JB: That dude is f*ckin’ loaded with cash. It would take you five days to rob that dude. Take this advice: always ride the coattails of the rich and famous. Russell Simmons could have done a show about Chlamydia and I would have done it.

SJ: Speaking about somebody with weight, are you working with Larry David on the 8th Season of “Curb You Enthusiasm?”

JB: You cannot get rid of Leon. You’d have to assassinate Leon to get rid of him. I’m looking forward to some new Leonisms, too. I’m looking forward to gettin’ in that ass.

SJ: You’re going to get into your character’s ass?

JB: I’m gonna get in Larry’s ass. I bring the ruckus. The ruckus will be brought this season, again.

SJ: Can you let us in on anything about the new season of “Curb?”

JB: Man, I don’t know anything. All I know is they’re shooting some in New York and some in L.A. I don’t know anything until I get to the set. I’m one of those guys that don’t like information until I get there. Larry’s pretty secretive. I know a little bit about nothing.

SJ: How was it working with the Farrell Brothers in their new film Hall Pass?

JB: Huge fans of those guys. Loved working on the movie with Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis. Had a ball doing it. And Stephen Merchant. What is that guy, like 6’9’’? Normally I’m the tall guy on set, this dude was like 6’9’’ or some shit.

SJ: Can you tell us some about your character in the film?

JB: I just play one of the homies. One of the friends. My name is Flats. I play Stephen Merchant’s brother-in-law.

SJ: What other projects do you have going on at the moment?

JB: I’ve got a ton of shit going on. A few other films I’m considering. Working on a few other shows. Doing my stand-up on the road. I’m just trying to pay Discover and Mastercard off. One thing you don’t want is motherf*ckers calling you the rest of your life.

SJ: Inception comes out next week and everyone is really excited for it. Are you excited to see it?

JB: Anything that Leo DiCaprio is in, I’m going to see that shit. They could combine his movies and I’d see that shit. The Inception of the Titanic. The boat could come back out the water and I’d see that shit. He’s got a cool-ass name.

SJ: In the movie, Leo’s character goes into dreams. If Leo went into your dreams, what would he find?

JB: Oh man, he’ll find some shit, man. The ruckus just flies in my body. He’ll go into my bloodstream and find that my ruckus level is high. I’m in the 90% range of ruckusness. The ruckus makes you thick skinned. You ever been to a petting zoo and rubbed a rhinoceros ass? His ass is like leather. That’s what the ruckus is.

So there you have it, everyone. The ruckus is like a rhinoceros ass. I want to thank JB for taking the time to speak with me. Be sure to look for him hosting “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey” Sundays at 11PM/10c on Comedy Central. The new season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” premieres next year on HBO.

Susie Essman has lit it slip that the next season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" will be filmed predominantly in New York City. There aren't any details available beyond the news that production will begin in July, so we're not really sure what plot specifics will bring Larry David to town. But we're certainly happy to have him, though I fear he'll stick out like a sore thumb. If there's one thing in short supply in New York City, it's fussy old coots prone to shouting. (NYPost)

Here’s some news that will surely move the peen of Manhattan’s improv players. Susie Essman has lit it slip that the next season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" will be filmed predominantly in New York City. There aren’t any details available beyond the news that production will begin in July, so we’re not really sure what plot specifics will bring Larry David to town. But we’re certainly happy to have him, though I fear he’ll stick out like a sore thumb. If there’s one thing in short supply in New York City, it’s fussy old coots prone to shouting. (NYPost)

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Porn Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/curb-your-enthusiasm-porn-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/curb-your-enthusiasm-porn-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 It boggles my mind that anyone would willing choose to watch a porn parody of "Curb Your Enthusiam." There isn't one character on that show that I would enjoy seeing naked. Alright maybe Cheryl, but I certainly haven't been itching to see her tossed into and tossed in a hardcore storyline. And then there's Larry David. I like to pretend that man's clothes never come off. In my mind, he's a never-nude.

Hustler Video has a difference of opinion. They’ve been a roll producing porn parody after porn parody, and the big wheel landed on "Curb" next. I have to admit, the trailer does capture the neurotic ranting of Larry David and the absurdily mundane, or mundanely absurd, situations he always seems to step in. Check out the trailer for yourself below, and let me know if you’re happy with the SFW footage, or you want to see an awkward penetration mishap that spirals out of control.

You'll get an idea of what happened (to the 'Seinfeld' characters) 11 years later."  The series returns on September 20th and I personally am very excited to see what happens if Kramer is locked in a room with Leon or Crazy Eyez Killah.
