In 2007, actor Jason Alexander rubbished reports in a press interview that comedian Jerry Seinfeld is disrespecting Seinfeld co-creator Larry David's contribution to the popular sitcom, considering the latter has nothing to do with the development of the feature-length spin-off.
"That's just speculation that cropped up online. We all still talk to Larry a lot", Jason explains,
"And I know he suggested one or two ideas in the writing process. Funnily enough, me and Jerry were saying only recently it was Larry's own show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, that really got us confident a movie of Seinfeld could work... considering a lot of it is the same humour done with really great style". The Seinfeld Movie sees worldwide release on the 7th February, 2007.
