TV show reunions are all the rage these days and no one knows this better than Topher Grace, who has pieced together a “Seinfeld reunion” earlier this week. He got the footage from the seventh season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm where the story centered around Larry David doing a Seinfeld reunion in hopes of saving his marriage. The season guest starred most of the Seinfeld gang: Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and Wayne “Newman” Knight. While there has never actually been a Seinfeld reunion, Curb gave viewers a good idea of what our favorite characters are doing these days.
Grace, who is well versed in creative editing (he also edited the Star Wars prequel trilogy into one film) posted his Seinfeld edit on facebook today. He called the finished product more of “a radio play,” since some of reunion is built around audio rather than video. It sounds questionable, but honestly, it’s a lot of fun. Hollywood is probably not going to hand him an award for best editing in town, but the story works, the jokes are funny, and the characters are all pretty much the same as we remember them.
Take a peek, we think you’ll dig it.
I edited all the Seinfeld scenes from Curb season 7 into one episode. It’s more like a radio play, but if you sew together all the dialogue from audition scenes, read-throughs and rehearsals together… a 9 minute hint at what the plot of a reunion might have been.
