He calls his new ABC sitcom, "The Goldbergs," "soulful," saying, "I'm not going to do anything other than 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' that's s—, to be a sellout"
At the ABC Television Critics Association panel on Sunday for new sitcom "The Goldbergs," star Jeff Garlin said that there is a "decent chance" for more of his other show, "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
"I'm not trying to figure out Larry David, I'm just appreciating what we've [done]," Garlin said in response to a query about the future. He added, "I think there's a decent chance we'll do more."
Garlin continued by making light of recent reports on David's famous waffling on the future of the HBO comedy: "By the way, his reaction that made the news, where he's unsure — do you ever think he's ever not been unsure?" Garlin quipped.
ABC's "The Goldbergs" is a 1980s-set sitcom based on the childhood of executive producer Adam F. Goldberg. The show also stars Wendi McLendon-Covey and George Segal.
Segal plays "Pops," the grandfather of the family who is a kid at heart, even if he is no longer youthful in body and mind. In the pilot, as in Goldberg's real life, Pops gets confused behind the wheel and takes out a fast food drive-thru sign.
When Segal was asked by a reporter during the Q&A about the possibility of the "Pops" character just being a stereotypical crazy old man, Garlin interjected.
"I have to tell you something, my friend," he said. "Just so you know, I'm not going to do anything other than 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' that's shit to be a sellout," Garlin said.
Garlin eased back into lively crowd-work, even calling out a TheWrap reporter for having his headphones on during the panel.
“Headphones!” Garlin yelled. “Transcribing, my ass! I saw you looking at your iPod."
(He was transcribing, we swear.)
