Looks like we may have to wait for another season of Curb. http://news.bostonherald.com/track/insi ... ition=alsoWill Larry David be hamming it up in Boston?
“Curb Your Enthusiasm” crank Larry David has been cutting quite a swath through metro Boston this week, and wethinks we know why!
The part-time Vineyarder is getting ready to make a new flick with “Mad Men” hottie Jon Hamm and it appears he is thinking of shooting some of it in Mass. Yipppeeeee!
The “Seinfeld” Svengali, “Superbad” director Greg Mottola and a couple of assistants wandered into Woodman’s, the famous fried clam shack in Essex, the other day and looked to be scoping it out for possible film scenes.
“They walked to the back room where Adam Sandler shot the dinner scene in ‘Grown Ups’ and took some pictures,” said Someone Who Was There. “Larry walked back and forth a few times then walked out the side door. They then took some more pictures. Larry walked back in with the two women, one had a book that looked like location log or something, in a blue binder.”
Now in case you haven’t heard, Larry has put “Curb” on hiatus for a stretch to make an improv comedy flick that Mottola will direct. It is set to shoot this fall. David will star as a Larry David-like character, according to showbiz411.com, and Hamm will play his nemesis. Don Draper’s alter-ego has done some impressive comedy in “30 Rock” and on “Saturday Night Live,” and in “Bridesmaids,” too — and BTW, has made a movie here before, Ben Affleck’s “The Town.”
Needless to say, we would welcome Jon back with open arms!
But back to Woodman’s: “The kids working behind the counter knew something was up,” said our spywitness. “One of the girls asked (Mottola), who was bald in his early 30s, if he was Larry David. The two women and Larry laughed, and (Mottola) said, ‘No but I get asked that a lot.’ Larry then said, “He isn’t Larry but he knows him very well.’”
Woodman’s must have given David a hankering for seafood, because apres scouting he hit the Island Creek Oyster Bar in Kenmore Square for dinner.
“He looked exactly like his persona on TV and acted similar to his character on the show,” said another table tipster. “My friends actually thought he was a jerk when we talked to him. Then I said, ‘No, not a jerk, that is just how he is on the show! He handles everything awkward and leaves everyone feeling mad at him!!!’ ”
That night Larry hooked up with “Three Stooges” writer/director Bobby Farrelly and Seth MacFarlane’s manager John Jacobs and took in a screening of Seth’s new made-in-Boston comedy, “Ted.” (Which, we heard, was “pee your pants funny.”) Then the boys all repaired to Sonsie for cocktails.
All of which is pretty, pretty good ...
