For Jason Alexander, nine seasons as hapless schlep George Costanza on NBC's "Seinfeld" have been the crowning glory to a 25-year career on stage, screen and television.
Alexander and his production company, AngelArk Inc., recently signed an exclusive development deal with Twentieth Century Fox Television to develop a television series for Alexander to star in as well as house his production company. AngelArk Inc. has a 30-episode pending deal with the Fox Family Channel for Alexander to co-executive produce a weekly reality-based comedy series called "Liquid Soap."
Alexander has appeared on the big screen in "Brighton Beach Memoirs," "The Mosquito Coast," "Jacob's Ladder," "White Palace," "The Coneheads," "Blankman," "The Last Supper," and the Academy Award-nominated live-action short film "Down on the Waterfront." His most memorable roles include those in Rob Reiner's "North," Ron Howard's "The Paper," and as Richard Gere's villainous lawyer in "Pretty Woman." He also starred in the 1998 independent dark comedy "Denial" that answers the question "Does monogamy really exist?" He currently stars as Boris Badenov in Universal's "Rocky and Bullwinkle," the live-action/CGI special effects combo also starring Rene Russo and Robert De Niro.
As a leading man, he has brought his comedic flair to starring
roles in "I Don't Buy Kisses Anymore" and "Dunston Checks In." In 1997,
he garnered exceptional reviews for his wonderful portrayal of Buzz in the
film version of Terrance McNally's Tony Award-winning play "Love! Valour!
