Former “Seinfeld” star Michael Richards has signed up for his first high-profile gig in quite some time – likely because nobody would hire him after his tirade at the comedy club in which he let rip with some offensive racist torts at some audience members – the new TVland sitcom starring Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman.
“Giant Baby”, says Deadline, tells of “Broadway star Madison Banks (Alley), who reconnects with her long-lost son after the death of his adopted mother. Richards will play Maddie’s limo driver, with Gilles Marini (Brothers & Sisters) also booking a guest-star gig as her chef. Perlman will play her assistant and best friend. “
Richards guest- starred on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” recently.
