Jason Alexander may be heading back to TV

Jason-AlexanderImage Credit: Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesJason Alexander may be heading back to network television. CBS has ordered an hour-long series, which Alexander would executive produce as well as star in, about a “former TV star who’s down on his luck and winds up joining his ex-wife’s detective agency. Once there, the character reinvents himself as an investigator with a penchant for disguise,” according to Variety. Recall that Julia Louis-Dreyfus has signed on for an HBO political show. It’s almost like an awesome turn on Curb Your Enthusiasm has wonderful lasting effects!

I’m of the firm belief that George Costanza is one of the all-time most tragic figures in American television, and while I don’t know that I’m desperate for another goofy detective series, I do love seeing Alexander play down-and-out. My spidey senses are telling me that the real make-it-or-break-it ingredient for the series will be the casting of Alexander’s ex. Chemistry, you guys. Chemistry.

So go ahead and sit in the casting director’s chair, PopWatchers. Who would you want to see play opposite Alexander?

      wow great choice. I would especially love it if she played a character similar to the one she portrayed on Californication.

  • Jake

    Portia de Rossi comes to mind for me, but I don’t really know why I feel they would work well together.

    • Vince from NYC

      That’s who came to my mind immediatley too. She’s too good not to be on TV. She was awesome in Arrested Development and Better off Ted. She can be goofy funny or serious funny.

  • Duane

  • Mr. Holloway

    His ex…Marisa Tomei! (He’s her type…and she’s mine. :)

    It’s been more than a decade and I STILL can’t believe he never won a single Emmy for playing George Costanza!

    • Duane

  • redvector

    I like JA but this idea sounds like crap.

  • George

    All I want is Terriers back.

  • MCS

    Private detectives must be the new vampires. Bored to Death, Terriers, now this.

  • Kimmy

    Maura Tierney would be perfect! She’s shown that she can do comedy (NewsRadio), and drama (E.R.). I loved The Whole Truth but since that’s been cancelled, she needs a job!

    Sorry, I can’t sign off on Jason Alexander as anything but George Costanza.
