Its the Winter of George!
Chubby Seinfeld star Jason Alexander plans to drop some pounds this year, so hes signed on as a spokesguy for Jenny Craig.
Its like someones clubbing me over the head its so obvious I should be doing this, the funnyguy told People. It was a deadly combination of Im fat and they work, he said of the program and why hes committed to it.
The former KFC spokesperson says he was drawn to the weight loss program after watching footage of his recent appearances in film and television.
I just got to a point where when I would look at the Seinfeld reunion stuff (on Curb Your Enthusiasm) or one of these other projects that I had done, I said, I dont like the way that guy looks. That guy is not attractive in any way, shape or form to me, he said. It made me go, Oh, yuck!
George Costanzas alter ego hopes to lose between 30 and 40 pounds to get back to his Seinfeld weight. Apparently, his wifes two pregnancies netted the papa 15 pounds per birth.
Alexander also isnt intimidated by the fact that hes one of the few men to promote Jenny Craig.
In fact, he was inspired by his predecessor Valerie Bertinelli, who flaunted her hot bikini bod on the cover of People last April.
Its hard for me to think of the Jenny Craig program - or any weight loss program - as a female thing, he said. Im trying not only to do it for myself but Im encouraging other guys to come on board and say we can do this. This will work for us, and we can do this and deal with the problem.
No fattening soup for you!
JERRY: Yeah, you liked him. What happened with him?
ELAINE: Yeah I did. He was very talented. He was, ah just, I don’t know a little too...
JERRY: Oh. (unh - very quiet sigh)
ELAINE: He was a fat, starving artist, y’know. That’s very rare.
His leg muscles have atrophied, but with a little luck, and a lot of hard work, he may be able to one day walk again.
GEORGE: Hey, at least I was a camp waiter.
JERRY: (Scoffing) Camp.
GEORGE: It was a fat camp. Those kids depended on me.
The best of Soup Nazi episode....
I wanna lose weight.
I challenge Jared! Show me the money! I mean weightloss! heh.
the actor who played Newman dropped quite a lot of weight and now looks nothing like his former character.
Actually,we got soup from the “Nazi”in NYC. The episode was
no far from the truth!
George: This Jenny Craig yogurt is *bleeping* good!
He ate too many “liberal cupcakes” drinking from the Kool-Aid trough.
I remember an article on the end of Seinfeld, they talked to the “real soup Nazi” and he said something like this (funniest thing EVER)...
‘I am so glad the show is ending, and I hope everyone associated with it burns in Hell. They ruined by life. My customers are afraid of me now, but they just do not understand... THE LINE MUST MOVE!’
Yea,they ruined his life.That’s why he sells his soup in
malls for 18.00 dollars a quart! I must admit it was quite
an experience being in the line.We did get free bread!
Slippery Pete: Well, I need a battery for this kind of a job. Can I at least steal a battery?
George Costanza: Fine. Steal the battery. Now, all right, here is the Frogger. This is the front door, and this is the outlet.
Slippery Pete: What’s that?
George Costanza: The outlet?
Slippery Pete: Mm-hmm.
George Costanza: That’s where the electricity comes out.
Slippery Pete: Oh, you mean the holes.
I never got into Seinfeld, but saw Alexander in the MONK episode “The Other Detective” and thought he did a great job as a henpecked son. Will have to see some of his other stuff.
He’s still a bit of a fat head when it comes to politics. Maybe if he lays off sex for a while he’ll smarten up....
Aww, thanks for the ping. I missed out on the Seinfeldian fun! Wait...
It was the non-fat yogurt that got him!
Kramer- Hey, chubbs...
Jerry- You call me chubbs once more and you’re walking home.
