Paul Shaffer Was Asked To Play George Constanza On Seinfeld

That’s his contention anyway, as expressed here.

It doesn’t feel quite right to me. Maybe they had a part for him, but not George surely? Jerry Seinfeld said on Howard Stern’s show though that it was “wrong … I don’t know how that got started, not true.”

On the same radio show, Jerry revealed that they considered Megan Mullally and Rosie O’Donnell for Elaine, but as soon as Julia Louis-Dreyfus auditioned, they knew she was the one.

All of this reminds me of this scene for some reason.

I want to know what was cut after the ‘sleep with him’ line, Elaine is clearly about to retort, then it cuts away awkwardly.
