Watch Jerry Seinfeld Reunite With Michael Richards in New 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' Clip
Richards yells at Seinfeld in the season-five promo
In the promo clip, Richards plays Dick Corcoran, the president of Crackle, which is the online distributor of Seinfeld’s digital series. He rants to Seinfeld about his concerns that “Snap” and “Pop” will be Crackle’s ruin.
In an interview with The New York Times, Seinfeld explained why he cast Richards for this fictional role. “We thought: ‘Who would be a good insane, pompous, power-mad president of Crackle? Who’s good at playing someone who has absolutely no power, but thinks they’re the czar of the universe?’ ” said Seinfeld. “And that’s when I thought of Michael.”
The fifth season of the web series will premiere on Nov. 6.
