Jerry Seinfeld Set to Star in New Season of ‘Louie’?


We’re glad to see that comedian Jerry Seinfeld has been Talking Funny with Louis CK since their HBO special aired last year, co-starring Ricky Gervais and Chris Rock. is reporting that we may be seeing the neurotic New Yorker on Louie, which returns to the small screen in about a month.

During a press junket for Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Chris Rock reportedly took a call from Seinfeld, who told him he was busy working on the set of Louie. Rock and Gervais have already guest starred on the series, so it would be great to complete the trifecta.

We’re not sure if he’ll be playing a crude and hilarious doctor like Gervais, or himself — like CK — but we welcome him back to the TV universe with open arms. (Laughspin reports it will be a “slightly fictionalized version,” similar to Doug Stanhope’s role.) Artie Lange and Marc Maron will also be appearing in the new season, which premieres June 28 at 10:30PM. Excited?
