For Jason Alexander, itís all about shrinkage
Boston Herald ^ | January 7, 2010

It’s the Winter of George!

Chubby “Seinfeld” star Jason Alexander plans to drop some pounds this year, so he’s signed on as a spokesguy for Jenny Craig.

“It’s like someone’s clubbing me over the head it’s so obvious I should be doing this,” the funnyguy told People. “It was a deadly combination of ‘I’m fat’ and they work,” he said of the program and why he’s 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 don’t 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 Costanza’s alter ego hopes to lose between 30 and 40 pounds to get back to his “Seinfeld” weight. Apparently, his wife’s two pregnancies netted the papa 15 pounds per birth.

Alexander also isn’t intimidated by the fact that he’s 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.

“It’s hard for me to think of the Jenny Craig program - or any weight loss program - as a female thing,” he said. “I’m trying not only to do it for myself but I’m 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: Artsy?

ELAINE: Fat.

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.

He ate too many “liberal cupcakes” drinking from the Kool-Aid trough.

LOL!

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!’

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....

Another Festivus miracle!


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.
