Earlier this season on Saturday Night Live, Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David made a few surprise appearances, portraying Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in episodes hosted by Tracy Morgan and Donald Trump. Last night, Larry David hosted SNL, and, as expected, the actor/writer once again portrayed Bernie Sanders, but in a way most hadn't expected. One of last night's most popular sketches was a spoof on Larry David's own show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, entitled Bern Your Enthusiasm.
The sketch features Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail in Iowa, where the caucus was recently held, where the Presidential candidate is shaking hands with his supporters after a rally. The plot thickens when an avid fan (Leslie Jones) wants to shake his hand, but she coughs into her hand first, which creates quite a stir when the candidate refuses to shake her "germ-infested hand." The sketch also features different takes on some of Curb Your Enthusiasm's supporting players, with Bobby Moynihan playing Jeff Garlin, Vanessa Bayer playing Cheryl Hines and Jay Pharoah playing J.B. Smoove.Read More
After the enormous backlash that followed Ben Affleck landing the Batman role in Batman Vs. Superman, one has to wonder how the fans will react to this latest rumor. Sources claim that Ben Affleck wants his Brentwood, CA neighbor, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David, to play Mr. Mxyzptlk in this highly-anticipated sequel.
This is the first we've heard of Mr. Mxyzptlk being mentioned as a villain in the sequel. The character, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, made his first appearance in Superman #30 in September 1944. He hails from a mysterious "fifth dimension" and often torments Superman with various pranks and tricks. In the comic books, he can only be "stopped" by a dose of his own medicine, so to speak. If he is tricked into saying or spelling his own name backwards, the villain is involuntarily sent back to his home dimension for at least 90 days. Larry David most recently starred in The Three Stooges and the HBO TV movie Clear History.Read More
