  1. The headline makes it sounds like something that would be perfect for HBO or Showtime…a despondent actor trying to make it, ala Ricky Gervais’ “Extras”. The real description seems comic, and how could it not be with Alexander. Even if it wanted to be dramatic, it will be hard to change audience perception. It actually sounds more like something which might work on USA which seems to be able to do light action series so well. But to see Jason Alexander somewhere again on a regular basis would be a welcome development!

  2. I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up :)
