Last month, we were excited to report that
Aliens' Mad About You's Paul Reiser is returning to TV with NBC's The Paul Reiser Show!
Now, Reiser has opened up about his return to the small screen. Here's what he had to say about it:
"I felt America needed me…I'm joking. I wasn't at all looking for it."
"There was no plan. This came about when a nice executive from Warner Bros. called me and said, 'We'd like for you to develop something for you.' And I'm nothing, if not susceptible to flattery and nice things, so I just wrote my life and when it was done, I thought, 'This is very fun. I know people would watch this.' It felt like the timing was right."
And here's Reiser on an upcoming appearance by Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David on his show:
"I called Larry and I said, 'I'm sure you're not going to want to do this, but we wrote this part for you and you gotta do it,' And he was so gracious and he said, 'Here' s the thing, I don't like to memorize scripts so we'll improvise it.' And I said, 'Done, let's do that.' And then I got very nervous to be honest because he's brilliant and he's developed that art form."
A Paul Reiser/Larry David combo? Sounds good to us!
Glad to have you back on TV, Paul! It just feels right.
We're thinking/hoping that you'll be in our lives for a very long time to come. Let's be honest…at this point, we've known you long enough that we kind of trust your ability to make us laugh.
Are U looking forward to the return of Paul Reiser?
