Jason Alexander has had some hits and misses in his career. Some people would say that Jason Alexander happens to suffer from the Seinfeld curse. It is hard to diagnose exactly why the Seinfeld curse is happening, it is probably just because fans want Jason Alexander to be George Costanza for the rest of his life. It is as if the viewing public wants Jason Alexander to remain stuck in mind. This is part of the reason why so many people were clamoring for the Seinfeld reunion.
Jason Alexander has had a couple of failed sitcoms in his post Seinfeld career. The Bob Patterson show on ABC just lacked good writing in my view, but what can you do? ABC hasn’t had many hits when it comes to their sitcoms for the last decade if not longer.
The show Shut Up and Listen! Which centered around the career of columnist and sports commentator may have sounded exciting at one point because Jason Alexander was working on the show with the great Malcolm Jamal Warner, but the truth is that Tony Kornheiser’s life is admittedly fairly boring, this is the impression that Kornheiser at least gives off during his main show Pardon The Interruption on ESPN.
Jason Alexander probably wasn’t too surprised that Shut Up and Listen! ran its course fairly quickly. He probably takes the whole thing in stride at this point. The very fact that the best ratings that Alexander can typically get now are when he happens to appear on a poker show has to be a bit depressing for the former Seinfeld star. It also has to be a bit frustrating for the former Seinfeld star that the only way he can stir up controversy now is to get in a fight with PETA as noted by Tree Hugger. The KFC ads that Jason Alexander ran are something that he probably know would be a lighting rod with the animal rights movement.
Voiceover work is likely going to be in Jason Alexander’s future because he is slated to join the cast of Nickeloden’s Fairly Oddparents as noted by the TV Guide Channel. He should be able to entertain a younger audience on the Fairly Oddparents. This way a younger group of viewers can learn about who Jason Alexander is.
