Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld and the creator and star of the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, recently joined Superbad director Greg Mottola for an improvisational comedy. According to Showbiz 411, David signed on to co-write the comedy with Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel, the three writers behind the current Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Dictator, as well as play a lead character who’s basically a version of himself. David also signed on to co-produce the Fox Searchlight comedy with his co-writers as well as Bradley Thomas.
Mad Men star Jon Hamm, who recently showcased his comic talents as a guest host on Saturday Night Live, joined the movie as the nemesis to David’s character.
David was last seen in drag as Sister Mary-Mengele in the Farrelly brothers' feature-length reboot of The Three Stooges. His last major movie role was the 2009 Woody Allen comedy Whatever Works.
Hamm, who just wrapped season five of Mad Men on AMC, recently appeared in the comedy Friends with Kids.
No details yet on the plot of the Larry David/Greg Mottola comedy. Still, the idea of David and Hamm squaring off each other looks funny.
