What's the Deal of the Day: Jerry Seinfeld Reveals Some Kind of Reunion
- -

Just a few weeks ago, Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Larry David were all spotted hanging around the restaurant made famous by their award winning sitcom. Originally said to be a location for Jerry's web series, he recently (and vaguely) revealed that this secret project will be a Seinfeld reunion of sorts.




After giving an extremely vague interview to WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" show, producer Al Dukes pressed Jerry further which suggested the possibility of this reunion project to air sometime during the Super Bowl.

Apology of the Day

Jason Alexander's appearance on The Late, Late Show With Craig Ferguson last week was met with a lot of grief -- and justifiably so, as he mocked the sport of cricket for being "a bit gay," poked fun at the athletes' uniforms, and even mimicking their moves.

Now, however, he's offered via Twitter perhaps the best apology letter ever written. Here's an excerpt:

It is not that we can't laugh at and with each other. It is not a question of oversensitivity. The problem is that today, as I write this, young men and women whose behaviors, choices or attitudes are not deemed "man enough" or "normal" are being subjected to all kinds of abuse from verbal to physical to societal. They are being demeaned and threatened because they don't fit the group's idea of what a "real man" or a "real woman" are supposed to look like, act like and feel like. For these people, my building a joke upon the premise I did added to the pejorative stereotype that they are forced to deal with everyday. It is at the very heart of this whole ugly world of bullying that has been getting rightful and overdue attention in the media. And with my well-intentioned comedy bit, I played right into those hurtful assumptions and diminishments. And the worst part is -- I should know better.  My daily life is filled with gay men and women, both socially and professionally. I am profoundly aware of the challenges these friends of mine face and I have openly advocated on their behalf.

He concludes:

So, I can only apologize and I do. In comedy, timing is everything. And when a group of people are still fighting so hard for understanding, acceptance, dignity and essential rights – the time for some kinds of laughs has not yet come. I hope my realization brings some comfort.

Classy.

George Is Getting Upset of the Day: Mitt Romney loves to quote George Costanza at debates and rallies. He's done it at least three times in the past, including during last night's CNN debate.

Except he gets it wrong every time.

"As George Costanza would say, when they're applauding, stop," he told last night
