"Jerry brings different things to the table," he told Entertainment Weekly. "He's a brilliant comic, and he'd written a great script. He and his team are able to massage the scene and the whole time and come up with new jokes left, right and center. He was lovely and very supportive of me."

Jerry Seinfeld called Hugh Grant a "pain" to work with.

While Seinfeld admitted that he did not initially think of Grant to play the part, he ultimately hopped on board.

"The character is Thurl Ravenscroft, which is the real name of the guy who did the voice of Tony the Tiger. And so I imagined a frustrated Shakespearean actor who has to play this embarrassing character to make his car payments, and Hugh Grant is perfect for that," he told "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon. "I did not think of Hugh Grant for the part … and I love Hugh Grant so much."

"Then he called us," he added. "He said, ‘I want to be in the Pop-Tart movie. So I got the script, and he did an audition on his phone, with a glass of wine in the other hand, by the way."
