“Curb 9 wraps with two of the funniest comedians I’ve ever known,” Lewis said about David and his “odd couple” co-star, J.B. Smoove.
So far, we know the funnymen will be joined by recurring guest stars Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Gilmore Girls’ Lauren Graham, and longtime series favorites Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, and straight-shooting Cheryl Hines.
Production on Season 9 kicked off last November with a goofy HBO video of Smoove trying and failing to get Larry out of his trailer. Smoove recently told Complex that, for better or worse, his dynamic with Larry won’t have changed in today’s political climate. “Larry is an old white man … You know how hard it is to tell somebody to be woke and they ain’t woke? He’s not woke,” Smoove says, but he promises, “I’m going to get that man woke before the season is over, I’ll tell you that much.”
Curb Your Enthusiasm launched all the way back in 2000, but has issued “only” eight seasons, because, let’s be real: When you’re Larry David and you have “Seinfeld creator” money, you’re not about to be on anyone else’s schedule.
