"I do not want to live in that 1-percent. I don't believe in it," he continued. "I don't think our country, or any country, runs well when the 1-percent is thriving and the rest are suffering and struggling."

It's interesting that the Hollywood millionaires/billionaires seem to share this view (with exceptions of course). You can't even say it's because none of them were born with a silver spoon in their mouth because Angelina Jolie runs around the world adopting kids and rebuilding shiat and her father Jon Voight is a right wing dick.

/if Jason Alexander had decent representation at all during the Seinfeld years, he's probably worth a lot more than Romney

Now is when we say that Hollywood elites should not be allowed to talk about political things, right?

Was that wrong? Should he not have done that? I gotta tell ya, he pleads ignorance on this thing.

Why is that interesting? You mean to tell me an industry made up of successful people who are generally very liberal socially and fiscally don't mind being taxed more to help those with much less? I am shocked I tell you.

It's especially when you consider people in the same industry who should have just as much, if not more, wealth pending some bad career choices act like they're the most oppressed little people in the world unless they get what they want, like a Repub pres. Case in point:

Since this is in the Entertainment tab, will people freak if someone says something political? Not sure this isn't a trap. Will stand off in the sidelines and remain cautious for now.

I do not want to live in that 1-percent. I don't believe in it,

I notice that you cashed the checks.

I also saw you on the DVDs, and I really doubt you donated your time.

No, they didn't get screwed on residuals. They are all multimillionaires.

"Screwed" is a strong word, but, Seinfeld and Larry David got the bulk of the money, especially from syndication. The other 3 got pennies on the dollar of what Jerry & Larry got. At least, that is my understanding of how the whole syndication thing went down (which is where the real money is in TV).

Another dispute nearly scuttled the last season of the nine-year-long "Seinfeld." The three co-stars got tough during negotiations and managed to raise their fee for the final season in 1997 to the same level as Seinfeld himself -- about $1 million per episode -- but Alexander said it was done with a heavy heart.

Alexander said the three co-stars would have greatly preferred "back-end participation" -- a share in royalties from future profits, rather than taking such huge salaries up front.

"We make very little, standard Screen Actors Guild residuals for the reruns," Alexander said. "I'm not ashamed to talk numbers. I would say in the years that we've been in syndication, Julia, Michael and I have probably individually seen about a quarter of a million dollars out of residuals ... whereas our brethren have seen hundreds of millions of dollars. Seinfeld has a profit of over a billion dollars."

In the end, the three major cast members got royalties from the DVDs for their participation in new material for the DVDs. The three of them got a great deal considering the quality of their added material.

Yeah...what business do public figures have stating opinions. It's not like they're citizens or anything.

Isn't this a microcosm of how the economy works now though? The "creators" are supposed to make all of the money because they "created" it.... everyone else should be happy enough with whatever is graciously given on their paychecks.

Fine. Give all your money to a charity, except for a couple hundred bucks to live on til your next paycheck from a minmum wage job, ya fat, bald-headed f*ck.

As opposed to the overwhelming majority of left-wing dicks who make up the entertainment industry, like poor starving Barbra Streisand or Rosie O'Donnell.

Agreed. Plus I guess he lost a lot of his wealth during the dot.com meltdown. He evidently was pretty heavily "invested" in start ups.

Jerry might have been their meal ticket but once the show started he was the least important part of the show.
