Guess who’s getting paid a whole bunch of money — $20 million — to play rough with all those superheros in the Avengers sequel? That’s more than any actress. EVER!

Admit it. Between this post and this post you probably figured I had squeezed every last drop of Jewce out of last week’s episode, “Far Away Places.” But I actually decided to leave something out — Ginsberg’s pathetically transparent declaration that he loves the clams at Howard Johonson’s. I say pathetically transparent because Don saw right through it,…

Jason Alexander aka George Costanza met in Jerusalem this week with Israeli President Shimon Peres (he also visited with Palestinian officials in Ramalah). Alexander was representing the organization OneVoice, which seeks to help reach a two-state solution by training “Israeli and Palestinian youth in leadership skills, non-violent activism, and democratic principles.”
Here’s the official version from the president’s office:
President Peres turned to Jason Alexander with a smile and said jockingly, please allow me to call you George. He then said: “George, on the show you and Jerry Seinfeld conduct yourselves like two different states – each of you has a differing world view and creative thoughts. What is your advice to advance the peace process in the Middle East?”
Alexander answered the President by saying that it is correct that he and Jerry Seinfeld represent two different worlds and it is extremely difficult to have a relationship like this, but my advice to you is not to give up. Even with the disappointments it is important to continue in the difficult effort of advancing peace which is so important. I too, through comedy and humor, try to contribute my part by advancing the idea of two states for two people.
I smell a poll… (after the jump)

The group OneMillionMoms.com is outraged over Ben & Jerry’s new “Schweddy Balls” flavor. Don’t get the joke? Check out this video from Saturday Night Live: Now Lashon Holly loves Alec Baldwin and really loves a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. But we know better than to mix meat and milk — so, no, we weren’t…

Mazal Tov to Henry Winkler for being made an Honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. If we got this straight, he’ll be Sir Henry Winkler if he ever becomes a British citizen. The distinction has nothing to do with his on-par-with-anything-Olivier-ever-did performance as The Fonz. In fact, as Entertainment Weekly…

In between plugging her upcoming meditation retreat, Roseanne Barr told JTA that she was a fan of the recent protests and tent cities in Israel: “There’s always a tipping point of bullshit,” she said, “and they’ve reached it.” Just as long as they don’t grab their privates during Hatikvah.
