Seinfeld's Jason Alexander To Reunite With Michael Richards On TV Land's Kirstie

The last we saw of Jason Alexander on the small screen, he was frolicking with puppet versions of the Community characters in a guest appearance as "Mountain Man" for the NBC comedy. The actor has lined up another guest starring role, this time for TV Land's new sitcom Kirstie, formerly titled Giant Baby. While his Community guest-spot had Alexander reuniting with the network that hosted the hugely popular 90s sitcom Seinfeld, his Kirstie appearance will have him reuniting with Michael Richards, who played Kramer in the NBC comedy.

Kirstie stars Kirstie Alley as Madison Banks, a Broadway star who's surprised by the sudden appearance of Arlo (Eric Peterson), the son she gave up for adoption. His adoptive parents have died and he's looking to reconnect with the mother he never knew. Rhea Perlman (Cheers) plays Maddie's best friend and assistant, while Michael Richards plays Maddie's outlandish driver.

TV Land says Alexander will guest star as Maddie Banks' agent in the series, which is set to shoot later this month. Given the network's appreciation for bringing together stars from classic TV shows, with Richards already among the cast, Kirstie seems like as good a place as any to stage a mini-Seinfeld reunion.

It's a good day for Seinfeld-related news. Earlier today, we posted the first episode of the second season of Jerry Seinfeld's webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which stars the comedian as he cruises around in classic cars with other comedians and celebrities and then chats them up over coffee. Watch the Michael Richards episode from Season 1 here.
