Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has More Elaine in Her
The actress would love to reprise her Seinfeld role for a feature film
More soup for her!
Following in the footsteps of the successful Sex and the City movie, Julia Louise-Dreyfus says she’d love to reprise her role as Seinfeld‘s Elaine and do a film version of the hit 90’s sitcom.
“You get the financing together and I’ll work on the script,” Louis-Dreyfus told reporters at the 7th Annual TV Land awards on Sunday, set to air April 26.
Until then, Louis-Dreyfus, 48, is happy to reunite with her Seinfeld cast mates for several episodes in the upcoming season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall.
“It was wonderful,” she says, of working with Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards again. “It was like we never left to be honest with you – so that part of it was quite surreal.”
But when it comes to plot details, don’t ask. She’ll only yada-yada-yada you: “If I say anything, I will be killed!”
The Curb reunion marks the first time the gang has worked with Richards since he was in hot water for making off-color remarks during a stand-up performance in 2006.
“Michael is a dear friend of mine,” she said. “I love him very much and I’m really sorry that happened, and I know he is too.”
As for the character of Elaine, the actress guesses that by now she must have stirred up her own trouble, too.
“I would say she’d just be getting out of prison.”
