Bye, George! Jason Alexander pulls a reverse Matt Damon and sports some new hair

One can only begin to imagine how Elaine would react to this. A photo of Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander has hit the web today, and people everywhere are screaming, “Get out!” in response. Alexander, who was arguably the biggest bald icon in the ’90s besides George’s idol Dennis Franz, is now sporting a (still-not-quite-full) head of hair. (Don’t worry guys, despite this loss, you’ve still got Matt Damon… for now.)

The 52-year-old star debuted his new look, something he’s been considering for some time now, at the 27th Annual C.S.A. Artios Awards in Beverly Hills this week. Alexander again used his Twitter to explain his new image:

What you see on my head is a really good, semi-permanent hairpiece. By semi-permanent I mean that I can wear it constantly for weeks at a time, if I so choose. I can swim, shower, work out — whatever. It stays on. Or I can take it off any time of any day I choose. The reason it looks thin is that I challenged my designer to make me a piece that would look very similar to the way I did 10 years ago. So, it looks like a guy who is losing his hair and isn’t an artificial mop of hair that I never had….

You will likely see me wearing my hair more often than not in public but I have no shame in being seen as little old me, either. What I don’t want to do is draw a ton of attention to it by wearing it one day and not the next. If you see it often enough, your eye just adjusts to it and you really don’t notice. So yes, I’m still bald and yes, just like others in my profession who have to either wear make-up or dye their hair or undergo surgery, I now do a little something. It’s honestly no big deal for me and hope it’s not for you either.

Hey, to each his own, right PopWatchers? And let’s just all be grateful he didn’t go with his Colonel Sanders-inspired Criminal Minds look.

What do you think of Jason Alexander’s new look, PopWatchers? Is it weird to see him with hair or is that how you’ve always remembered him? Does it make you want to watch Dunston Checks In? (Although, to be fair, what doesn’t?) Share in the comments section below.

    Aww more power to him! If woman can go out and get b00b jobs to feel better, then he should be able to wear a rug if he so chooses. I think if I didn’t know him, I wouldnt suspect he was wearing something. Looks pretty decent.

    • lisa g.

      Geez what a thorough explanation!

      • lisa g. makes ignorant comments

        You didn’t read the artice did you?

  • deedee

    he’s adorable, with or without hair

  • Summer

    I think it looks nice. More men should try this out instead of getting those that look horrible. Looks natural.

    • PrincessBride

      It sure beats the old combover. Do men really think women aren’t on to that trick?

    • tvfan

      I saw the picture and not the headline and thought he got a face lift. I forgot about the hair. It looks really natural.

      • jmm

        It definitly makes him look younger!

      • Agreed

        1) More natural, 2) Younger.

  • peggy

    He looks good.

  • MiaS

    If that makes him happy-more power to him.
    Hope it gets him more jobs-I love watching him act.

  • t.t

    reminds me of that ep where george orders hair growin cream from china lol

  • Kel Varnsen

    Is this really news? I thought it was pretty common for him to wear a hair piece in his real life and when he was playing non-Costanza parts?

  • Sue1

    He looks fine, nice that he’s being honest about it.

  • David

    He’s not just a client,he bought the company.

  • amy

    Looks natural! But, I can’t help wondering what Jerry, Elaine, and Kramer would say? Jerry would ask if he got it on sale. lol Seinfeld was one of the funniest shows on tv!

  • heej

    The 1940s – bald paradise!

  • bunny

    You look great Jason. I like you no matter what. Hope your gonna do some more singing. your the best.

  • angela

    Good on you, Jason. Why not?

  • tomm

    It’s certainly way better than some of the rugs seen at Convention centers! Even though people say ‘loosk don’t matter’, they still will vote for the guy with ‘nice hair’ in elections. So, there

  • azjeff

    He looks good and it’s realistic.
