Even though it’s not exactly breaking news and it happened a couple months ago, it was still a funny sensation to see Erik Seidel on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
It was the Officer Krupke episode [Season 7, Episode 8] for those who follow the show.
During this final season (which includes a pseudo Seinfeld reunion show embedded within the premise of the Curb Your Enthusiasm series) we are passengers on a rollercoaster ride that is Larry David’s life.
He is trying to get his wife back and has promised her a role on the Seinfeld reunion show so as to meander his way back into her good books.
In this particular scene the two of them are having lunch. The conversation is basically an M-rated dialogue of an X-rated topic. Long story short, while watching this with my brother I hear, “Hey, isn’t that the Fulltilt guy? What’s his name? Seidel?”
He was right.
Watch closely during the parts of the scene where Larry and his ex-wife Cheryl are facing each other. In the background by the window, drinking an enormous ice-water, is Erik Seidel doing his best faux-conversation acting. Quite impressive really.
Apparently this position, as a mid-frame extra, was available for a price with the proceeds going towards a charity. Yet another example of what high rollers can do with their hefty bankrolls.
