Just earlier today we reported the recent development that readers had chosen ‘Seinfeld‘ as the greatest sitcom in televised history, reminding us all of the show’s golden NBC days. And while the infamous “Seinfeld Curse” has long since been broken by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, ‘Seinfeld’s’ most controversial star Michael Richards is heading back to TV for his first regular role in a decade. The sometime-troubled star will join TVLand’s ‘Giant Baby,’ but will you tune in?

‘Seinfeld’ star Michael Richards may have been the center of some bad attention in the last few years, but that spell may finally have been broken. Deadline reports that the former Cosmo Kramer has taken his first regular series role in a decade, joining the pilot of TVLand’s forthcoming sitcom ‘Giant Baby.’

‘Giant Baby’ stars fellow sitcom greats and ‘Cheers’ vets Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman as Broadway star Madison “Maddie” Banks and her long-suffering assistant, respectively. Banks’ life is thrown into turmoil when her long-lost son comes looking to re-connect, following his adoptive mothers death. Richards will take the regular role of Banks (Alley)’s limo driver.

As most remember, Richards’ post-‘Seinfeld’ vehicle ‘The Michael Richards Show’ flopped, and the only major TV appearances the actor has made between then and his 2006 Laugh Factory racial rant were his public apologies and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ turn taking part in the pseudo-‘Seinfeld’ reunion arc.

What say you? Would you tune in to see Michael Richards’ TV return in ‘Giant Baby’? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
