MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS (PIX11) – Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were spotted Monday walking into the famous Manhattan diner featured in “Seinfeld”, Tom’s Restaurant, according to reports.
Alexander, judging from the jacket and lack of hair, looking very much like his old character, George Costanza.
The restaurant, which was actually called Monk’s in the show, was indeed closed down for filming Monday, but it is unclear what they were shooting.
One possibility is an episode of Seinfeld’s latest interview series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but the red jacket, running shoes and lack of hair plugs on Jason Alexander are distinctly George Costanza-esque.
Another possibility could be a project that is currently in the works with Seinfeld creator Larry David. ¬†On a recent appearance on Reddit, Seinfeld said, “We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can’t reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it’s big, huge, gigantic. Even bigger than that Amazon package.”
There is also a mammoth television event that will be taking over the NYC area in less than a month — the Super Bowl — so a commercial could also be in the works.
