When I was a cultural studies major, a prof once told me that art imitates life. Being the bull-headed, know-it-all academic that I was, I refused to believe her — until now.
Fans of Seinfeld, (a.k.a. everyone on planet Earth) will remember that professional schlub George Costanza's dream job was that of an architect. It was a lie he resorted to whenever confronted by a potential lover, an old rival, or anyone else who threatened his imaginary throne. In what can only be described as a cruel twist of fate, Jason Alexander — the actor who portrayed George — now finds himself embroiled in a meta-universe where, guess what? Art has imitated life.
Since the show's ending, the rest of us have lived each and every day with the iconic sitcom's fabric embedded in our very souls. Now it's Alexander's turn. Don't worry Jason, the Junior Mints are on us. (Uproxx)
