Current tension between cast?

I was wondering how the gang currently feels about eachother because i recall that there were some problems in the past and also before the creation of the DVDs.

Also i noticed that commentary on the DVDs is only given by either Jerry and Larry, or Jason Micheal and Julia. Those two groups never get mixed up (wich is too bad because i'm wondering how the chemistry would be if Jason and Jerry did an episode together).

Is this purely because Jerry and Larry are the writers and the others not? Or is there still tension between Jerry and Micheal,Jason or Julia?

(btw my DVD box for season 4 should be coming in today Very Happy )

I don't think so. Because on Oprah they were best friends. And they were laughing back stage. I think it's just coincidence.

It was long before the DVD was out but I heard that they (Micheal,Jason and Julia) didn t want to cooperate in the making of the DVD. Micheal was the first to cooperate. Then the others followed. I think they wanted more money. If they were all chums they would have helped willingly. They need to realize who got them to stardom. Jerry. Larry and he did make the show and picked them to be in it.

I remember once hearing the Julia, Jason and Michael were mad at Jerry because he is making a huge amount of money on reruns and the rest of the cast was getting a whole lot less than he is on reruns.

Jimmy thinks he speaks for most of us here when he says "HOW THE HELL WOULD WE KNOW?"

Yeah there was tension. And Jerry seems to be the greedy one.

I guess I understand why the 3 co-stars wanted to be paid to do the commentaries, but on the other hand they became rich and famous because of this show, claiming that it hurts thier careers now is crazy, the main reason that they get news roles is because we know who they are because of 'Seinfeld'. And by the way, didnt they each make something like $1 Mill per week during the last season? They were all very good in thier parts, but I do believe that this show stands out mainly because of Jerry and Larry, without them and the great writing, it would have been just another average sitcom.

The 3 co-stars were very lucky to have been hired for these parts, and they were paid a fortune to do it.

And one final comment - they all act like they really dont want to be doing the commentaries anyway. They could at least act interested since they are getting paid to do it.

Well i don't know because it's not like hiring them was charity. They deserved it because of their talent. So they received money for their work. When your boss gives you your paycheck it's not a favour he does.

A win-win situation in my opinion. And of course the 4 actors close like a family outside the show would have been better.
