I was watching the “Pitch” episode last night and I started wondering this question.
David was not only the co-creator and the rough basis for George, he was as much an actor and performer as Seinfeld.
Though he didn’t have Jerry’s level of fame and success, he HAD been a sketch performer on Fridays (along with Michael Richards) as well as a moderate well-known stand up comedian.
I am glad it went to Jason Alexander (who played the part so well, he will have trouble gaining as much work as the talented man deserves), but I wonder was it ever discussed whether David would play it (ironic that both men have first names as last names).
Do you think NBC said we can’t have TWO bad actors on the show?
