If Jerry and George were still meeting at the diner, would social media mess with their marble rye?
CNN host Piers Morgan sat down with actor Jason Alexander, the man who brought the character George Constanza to life, and before long the Twitter account @SeinfeldToday found its way into the conversation.
Dedicated to bringing the characters of television’s most successful American comedy series into the twenty-first century, "Modern Seinfeld" looks to stay true to the show, while using current pop culture references and scenarios.
Sharing some favorites with his guest, Morgan sought Alexander's response.
"One reads: ‘George promises not to watch 'House of Cards' without his girlfriend, but can't help himself. She dumps him when he badly pretends to be surprised.’ Another reads: ‘George's ex changes her HBO Go password, George tries to reconcile with her just long enough to get the new one.’"
Alexanders enjoys the reference, but questions the originality of the author.
“That's Bosco,” Alexander told Morgan. “That's the big - it's a rehash of the Bosco...”
In addition to suggesting themes, "Modern Seinfeld" also often tweets nuances of the show’s characters. FULL POST
It's not every day a former President of the United States stops by the "Piers Morgan Live" studio.
But that is precisely what happened in March, as Jimmy Carter joined Piers Morgan to discuss the seemingly unaddressed human rights abuses that he hopes his new book will help reverse.
“It's very similar to the racial discrimination I knew when I was a boy, uh, living on the farm when the same thing happened just to black people in particularly the South and some other parts of the world,” said Carter, speaking of gender inequalities impacting women. “The white people deplored it, but they didn't do anything about it, most of them, because it really was beneficial to them to be given the best jobs and the best education and all the advantages over our black neighbors.”
The 39th President of the United States, whose time in office was marked by global humanitarian efforts, is the author of over 30 books ranging from global policy and presidential power to personal journeys in his faith and family. He is a man with an endless list of accomplishments, however the collection of goals he's yet to tackle may be more lengthy. At the top of his list today is helping to promote and create the fair and equal treatment of women.
“In our American universities, there is horrible sexual violence, very seldom reported,” said the author of "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power", his newest work. “The same thing happens in the U.S. military, as you know.” FULL POST
Note: After this interview taped, Monday, David Cassidy was ordered to spend five years on probation after pleading no contest to a drunken driving charge in Los Angeles.
Singer and songwriter David Cassidy may be best known for his role in the famed 1970's sitcom "The Partridge Family", but during his most recent adult years, the former teen pop-star has become equally infamous for his struggles with alcohol.
Despite immense professional success, during a "Piers Morgan Live" web exclusive Cassidy revealed that drinking may have ultimately destroyed his personal life: FULL POST
"Survivor", "Celebrity Apprentice", and most recently "The Voice". If it's a top show, with audiences glued to their flat screens singing universal praise, it's likely that Mark Burnett has had a hand it. And it's equally likely that there was a time when doubters far outnumbered dollars.
Burnett was never phased:
“I just do things I like to do and that I have a feeling that I'm committed to. I mean ‘Survivor’, I love. I mean off of my days in the parachute regiment in the army, I loved being in jungles and those kind of environments, so I made ‘Survivor’.” FULL POST

Coming up this evening at 9, Piers Morgan welcomes Matthew McConaughey for a primetime, face to face interview that comes amidst a bevy of buzz surrounding his Oscar-nominated performance in "Dallas Buyers Club." But despite the fact that the 44-year-old is a front-runner to capture the gold trophy as "Best Actor," his current success is not an indication of anything conclusive:
“I think it's a wonderful moment in my career that is in the middle of its approach. It doesn't feel like a destination," he tells the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "I'm extremely honored, this is the gold standard in the industry I'm fortunate enough to work in. But I - it doesn't feel like it's a resolution."
Known earlier in his career for playing the pretty-boy crush opposite a love struck leading lady, he's deepened his range with recent roles, including his physically and mentally transformative depiction of Ron Woodruff in "Dallas Buyers Club,” a drama based on the true story of an AIDS-stricken rodeo cowboy given 30 days to live.
