Ms. Louis-Dreyfus had a star unveiled on the Walk of Fame yesterday, but a snafu of epic proportions worked its way into the plans.
Organizers of the event had misspelled the Seinfeld star’s name and had manufactured a star featuring the overt error. The star read “Julia Luis Dreyfus.” However, the issue was caught prior to the unveiling of Louis-Dreyfus’ star and quick Hollywood magic was utilized to create a star with the correct spelling of the thespian’s name. Louis-Dreyfus laughed and chalked the entire ordeal up to standard Hollywood practice:
“The misspelling was so perfectly apt, a great metaphor for showbusiness. Right when you think you’ve made a name for yourself, you get knocked down. It’s an ideal metaphor for how this business works.”
Guess no matter how far you get, you’re always forgettable and insignificant in one way or another, but congratulations on your star anyway, lady — you’re fiercely talented!

Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Michael Richards have begun filming for their multi-episode reunion that will air on Curb Your Enthusiasm when it finally returns to HBO this Fall.
Julia is quoted as saying, “It was really fun to get together with everybody. Frankly, it was as if we never left.”
And there’s more fun to come. “We’re shooting again this month and in May,” she said. “We have a lot more work to do.”
No surprise, everyone has been sworn to secrecy…
Louis-Dreyfus can’t even reveal if they’re riffing on their legendary Seinfeld characters. “I really can’t say,” she said. “I’m sorry. I would if I could, but I’m not allowed.”
As a fan of both Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, I’m pretty excited about this. I also think I speak for most of America when I say that I hope they really take the piss out of Michael Richards. You can’t put him on Curb Your Enthusiasm and just ignore that infamously racist comedy club outburst from a few years ago. That would be a crime against acerbic comedy.
