Larry David håller på med en TV-film för HBO, som ju också producerade den provocerande roliga Curb Your Enthusiasm. L.A. Times har avslöjat vad filmen kommer att handla om. Och jo, upplägget ser ut som ett hederligt avsnitt av serien “Larry”. Och karaktären ser ut att vara rätt lik hans egen i samma serie. Fast inte riktigt. Läs handlingen efter “hoppet”, eller låt bli om du tycker att ovissheten är bättre: 


The plot concerns a marketing executive named Lenny (David) who is helping to market a new electric car.  Because he objects to the name (it’s “the Howard,” after “The Fountainhead’s” Howard Roark), Lenny gets into a fight with the creator, a colleague named Haney, and in a fit of Davidian pique gives Haney back his stake in the project.

This being a David story line, the car of course goes on to become a huge success, making Haney absurdly wealthy and leaving Larry out of the money (shades of George in “Curb’s” faux-”Seinfeld”reunion, forfeiting all the cash he had made on a public-toilet app to a Bernard Madoff scheme).

Having lost his wife, house and everything else, including his hair (it wouldn’t be a Larry David project without a baldness joke), Lenny moves to Martha’s Vineyard. Years later we find him as a lowly paid assistant to an elderly woman, living incognito with a different look under the assumed name Rolly.

But his life is soon shaken up when Haney, fabulously successful and not recognizing his former co-worker, shows up, prompting Lenny/Rolly to hatch a plan to exact revenge.

Så vad säger du? Ser du fram emot ett “Larry”-liknande avsnitt fast i spelfilmsformat?
