"It’s a full Gleason."
Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Seinfeld: “I remember thinking, ‘This show is so unusual. I can’t imagine people are going to be with it. Because it didn’t resemble anything that was on television at the time. It really didn’t.”
“Then,” Steinbrenner demanded, “what are all of these references to ‘George’ in the script?”
Sussman [Yankees’ general counsel] was stunned but tried to explain: “ ‘George’ is George Costanza. He is a character on the show. He is a friend of Seinfeld’s, and he plays the role of one of your employees.”
Steinbrenner acted incredulous, intoning: “I thought you were smarter than that. Don’t you see? This is how they are trying to get at me. They have named their character after me.””
