Estelle Harris on 'The Talk'Estelle Harris got a lot of laughs when she auditioned for the role of George Costanza's mother on 'Seinfeld.' They apparently laughed the minute they heard her distinctive voice. But, as she explained Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), she didn't think she was going to get the role. So instead of going home and waiting for the callback, she went to the zoo to see a special friend.

"So I went to visit my ape," she said, "and he loved me because he bent down and made a BM and threw it at me. Now this is a sign that the ape loves you."

A much better sign that someone loves you? The 103 phone messages waiting for Harris when she got back to her hotel, telling her she had gotten the part. If only the 'Seinfeld' producers had tossed poo at her after the audition, she may have felt more secure about it.
