Kramer cast in Giant sitcom
star Michael Richards has been cast in pilot for a prospective new sitcom. The series, Giant Baby, also would feature Cheers alums Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman. Industry website TV Land reports the pilot will be taped next week. Alley plays Broadway star Maddie Banks. Richards plays her limo driver. Perlman plays her assistant. This would be Richards’s first regular series role since his short-lived sitcom aired in 2000 on the US network NBC. Before that, he played Jerry Seinfeld’s kookie neighbour Cosmo Kramer on the wildly popular Seinfeld series. In the meantime, Richards performed as a stand-up comedian. He lost his temper while being heckled at a club in 2006 and was caught on tape shouting the N-word. He later apologised.
Coming in 2013.
