HBO has renewed “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” starring Larry David, for season 12. “Playing the role of Larry David has been the greatest honor of my life,” said David. “In researching this multi-faceted, multi-talented man, I discovered that there’s more to him than I ever could have imagined: He speaks six languages, brines his own pickles, and spearheads a national movement to install a bidet in every home. I’ve also been told from numerous sources that he is the most generous of lovers. I am so excited to once again transform into this force of nature. I only pray that I can do him justice.”
