The entire Seinfeld cast will appear on Curb Your Enthusiasm -- including Michael Richards

The cast of Seinfeld returning to Curb Your EnthusiasmIt's been a good long while since Michael Richards has been on television. If you don't know the reason why, then you either don't watch TV or you've been frozen since 1952 and had your body reanimated to combat the deadly disease for which you've found a secret cure.

If it's the second option, then stop being so selfish and share your cure with the world. Stop being so cold, no pun intended.

2009 could mark the beginning of Richards' comeback, as he and the rest of his Seinfeld pals will make an appearance during the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Larry David told The Hollywood Reporter that Richards has really mellowed out since his breakdown and described him as a "new man." He's been undergoing spiritual treatments in Cambodia since his breakdown at the Laugh Factory and his apology on David Letterman's Late Show. Is there anyone who hasn't apologized on Dave's show? Since the Palins' "Joke-gate" travesty, the Late Show is starting to become the Costco of television apologies.

It will be interesting to see how David and company write Richards' least shining moment into the story, if at all. I imagine that if they didn't, it would feel like the elephant in the room they're avoiding if they ignore it completely, whether Richards is playing himself or just another schlub in Larry's life. Even if they don't, it will be interesting to see what situation they put him and the rest of the old cast into the show.

Michael Richards was at his best on Friday's, a sketch-comedy show in the early 90s. Larry David was a lowly cast member and the least talented performer on the show. It's very difficult, if not impossible to see clips, but worth it if you can find them. The show was truly edgy and brilliant, including a regular 'Rastafarian Chef' cooking segment where the main ingredient was always Ganja.

Everyone deserves a second chance, especially in Hollywood.

Richards was a comic genius on Seinfeld. Maybe not so great in any other role or as a stand-up comedian, but certainly great as Kramer.

CYE will be great, and I'm sure Larry David and his writers do something unique to bring the cast back.

Am I the only one who doesn't understand how one could be frozen since 1952, yet still discover a secret cure for a disease one is apparently inflicted with? Surely you can't cure something while in a state of suspended animation? Unless, this selfish cure-hogging person also owns a cloning machine, and probably a time machine too.

And yes, I over-think these things.

I hope, but have no knowledge, that this season's continuing storyline will be about Larry trying to put together a "Seinfeld" reunion...
