'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Season 8: 10 Things You Need to Know

by Kim Potts, posted Jul 6th 2011 4:00PM
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Hello, Larry! We've missed the antics of Larry David and his 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' pals, but our lives will be Larry-less no more, as the eighth season of 'Curb' kicks off this weekend (Sun., July 10, 10PM ET on HBO).

We hosted the official first look at the new season in May, with glimpses of guest stars like Michael J. Fox, 'Mad Men' star Rich Sommer and Paul F. Tompkins among the familiar funny faces.

And even more big names have been announced since then, including Ricky Gervais, Rosie O'Donnell, Michael McKean and the return of Cheryl's BFF Wanda Sykes.

But none of this news, or the promise of Larry terrorizing NYC for at least half the season, has curbed anything -- we just want more information!

Here, 10 things to get you in the mood for what just might be the show's best season yet.

Larry David Breaks Regis's Heart, But Finally Appears on His Show (VIDEO)

Regis Philbin kisses Larry David on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Regis Philbin has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get Larry David to appear on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) for years. He finally got his wish today, but Regis, always one to take things personally, insisted on airing his grievances with David anyway. Regis played a montage of himself pleading with David to appear on the show, and also recounted a joke Larry played on him, when he showed up at Regis's building and asked the doorman to tell him that he'd been there, but that he didn't ask for Regis.

"Now that's cruel torture," Regis said to David. He grabbed David's arm dramatically. "'Tell him I didn't ask for him,' that's the line that killed me," he said.

"Can't you take a joke?" said David. "It was a joke." It was a playful, awkward exchange, and all was forgiven when Philbin pulled David close and planted a big kiss on his bald noggin, the type of happy ending you're not likely to see on the new season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' which premieres Sunday night on HBO.

Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Forget what Larry David tells you to do and get excited people -- Season 8 of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' looks amazing.

Larry's back for more politically and socially incorrect behavior, and he's got some big guest stars coming to play. In this exclusive preview, we spot Michael J. Fox, 'Mad Men' star Rich Sommer and Paul F. Tompkins among the familiar funny faces.

There's also his old pal Jeff (Jeff Garlin) and his wife Susie (Susie Essman), Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein) and Leon (J.B. Smoove).

Who don't we see? Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), for one. Of course last season ended with the two of them reuniting ... and then Cheryl instantly remembering why she left him in the first place. (Damn you Julia Louis-Dreyfus and your water-ringed furniture!)

Michael J. Fox and Michael Gross to Guest Star on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

Michael J. Fox and Larry David, in 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'Get ready for Keaton time on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' It's been announced that both Michael J. Fox and his 'Family Ties' onscreen father Michael Gross will be guest-starring on the upcoming Season 8.

According to TVGuide.com, Fox will play himself in Episode 10, in which 'Curb' uses Fox's real-life battle with Parkinson's Disease as a comedic plot device. "Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours," says Fox.

The famously irascible Larry then believes that Fox is "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."

Tom Ford Was 'MacGyver' to Isla Fisher's Wardrobe Malfunction (VIDEO)

Isla Fisher Talks Tom Ford on 'Late Night'When we ordinary citizens have wardrobe malfunctions, the best we can hope for is that a friend has a safety pin in her purse. Here's what happens among the celebrity elite:

At the 'Vanity Fair' Oscars after-party, Larry David gave Isla Fisher a "firm, hard hug" that snapped her dress strap. "I was exposed," she told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

"But only at the 'Vanity Fair' party, the crowds parted and there appeared my fashion angel in the name of Tom Ford -- who had on him a cufflink, a wire coat hanger and a candlestick."

"He's like a fashion 'MacGyver'!" exclaimed the host. Evidently so. "He MacGyvered my strap back on, and I had a great night!" Fisher said. And who says the rich and famous are just like us?

17 Things You Didn't Know About 'Seinfeld' (INFOGRAPHIC)

by Greg Voakes, posted Jan 19th 2011 11:45AM
seinfeld cast'Seinfeld' is one of the most beloved sitcoms of all-time, a "show about nothing" that's remained as ubiquitious and relevant in syndication as it was during its prime. Larry David's signature brand of wry, absurd situational humor resonated with millions of TV fans because it made average, everday life seem bizarrely eventful -- and ridiculously hilarious. Few shows of any kind have matched its quality and level of success.

But even 'Seinfeld' superfans who can quote lines of dialogue on-demand from their favorite episodes might learn a thing or two (or 17) from this infographic. Check it out after the jump and let us know in the comments.

Actually, make that 10 of Larry's most outrageous moments ... to recall them all would take us another 10 years.

Oh, and about that 10 years reference: 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' made its debut 10 years ago today, Oct. 15, which is why we're taking this walk down Larry memory lane.

Steve Buscemi Blames Paul Reiser for Ruining His Comedy Career (VIDEO)

Steve Buscemi Blames Paul Reiser for Ruining His Comedy CareerDid you know that Steve Buscemi once wanted to be a stand-up comic? It didn't work out, so he had to fall back on the whole acting thing. But why didn't it work out? Well, according to Steve, it's all Paul Reiser's fault.

Buscemi tells his sad tale on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Back in the '80s, Steve was trying to "make it" as a comic, and would show up at the Improv Comedy Club in New York City -- along with other young comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. These guys were picked to perform, but Steve never was ... because the club manager didn't like his act.

Emmy Picks: Best Lead Actor in a Comedy

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 25th 2010 12:05PM

With the Emmy awards just days away, I'm continuing to pick who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

Yesterday, I discussed the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy category. Today we look at some funny guys in the Best Lead Actor in a Comedy category.

Nominees:
Alec Baldwin, '30 Rock'
Steve Carell, 'The Office'
Larry David, 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'
Matthew Morrison, 'Glee'
Jim Parsons, 'The Big Bang Theory'
Tony Shalhoub, 'Monk'

Who will win:
There are three two previous winners in this category (four, if you count David's Comedy Series win for 'Seinfeld,') so there are lots of places the Academy can go if they want to play it safe. I can see them giving it to Alec Baldwin again, even though '30 Rock' didn't have the strongest season, though Shalhoub might get the votes as a tribute to the end of 'Monk''s long run. But the Academy loves the fact that they can give a comedy award to a guy who is still thought of in some circles as a dramatic actor. So Baldwin will take it.

Ted Danson Rants on Larry David, Craig Ferguson Defends Him (VIDEO)

Ted Danson Talks Larry David on 'Late Late Show'Ted Danson is upset with Larry David, he revealed on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). Apparently, David frequently stays in his guesthouse at Martha's Vineyard, and yet hasn't put him on the new season of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'

"What a bastard he is!" responded Craig Ferguson. No matter. As far as Danson is concerned, the show "sucks" now, and David is "over the hill and he's not that funny."

Ferguson countered that David was very nice when he appeared on the show. "He smells like warm biscuits," observed the host.

"I'm surprised that he let you get that close," said Danson. "He is like a germaphobe." Danson then described a practical joke he likes to play on David whenever the two are at the same event. That should serve as revenge for the foreseeable future.

George Steinbrenner: The First Made-For-TV Sports Owner

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 13th 2010 11:31AM
George SteinbrennerThe funny thing about New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, who passed away this morning at the age of 80, is that your perspective of his legacy is different depending on your age. If you're 25 or younger, all you know of George is that his teams won year after year. If you're around my age -- let's say I was a child of the '70s and '80s -- you remember the circus he made of the team during the Reagan era.

But there's one thing that no one can deny about George: He was the first made-for-TV sports owner, and he's been the model for every bombastic sports owner since.

Hamm and Seinfeld Will Talk 'Curb' on TV Guide Network

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 8th 2010 6:01PM
'Curb Your Enthusiasm'The TV Guide Network seems to be really trying to increase their original content, and they seem to be doing it the right way. And I'm not saying it because I've appeared on the channel. No, it's because they're really trying to go beyond just having listings scroll on the bottom of the screen and presenting red carpet arrival specials. They're acquiring shows, treating them right, and adding value to them.

Take the case of the network's acquisition of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' Not only did the network decide to run each episode in its entirety in a one-hour timeslot, a good move considering that Larry David would have tore what's left of his hair out trying to edit them, they've decided to fill the hour with panel discussions that relate to the "issues" brought up during the episode.

Among the announced panelists are going to be Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Hamm, Seth Green, Rob Zonbie, Taraji P. Henson, Adam Carolla and Patti Stanger (yes, the 'Millionaire Matchmaker' herself will weigh in on 'Curb's' issues). The panels will be hosted by Susie Essman.

Ricky Gervais Talks Larry David's Antics on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Ricky Gervais Talks Larry David on 'Late Show'Being friends with Larry David must be a hassle sometimes, but surely it's never boring. Being stuck between Larry and Madonna on 'The Marriage Ref,' Ricky Gervais witnessed quite the insulting exchange between the two, which he was happy to relay to Dave and a national audience on last night's 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

"He accused her of being a man-hater and she said, 'No I don't hate men, I just hate you," Ricky said. Then when Ricky and Larry met for lunch in New York City, the 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star's quirks really came out, and it was "like being on [his] show."
