When Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres its eighth season next month, there’s one stellar actor who’ll be on tap for some laughs in Episode 10. It’s none other than Michael J. Fox! And he won’t exactly hide his Parkinsons symptoms — they’ll be part of the joke!
According to TV Guide, Michael will play himself as Larry David’s upstairs neighbor in his NYC apartment. Although Michael has bravely battled Parkinsons Disease since 1991, his visible symptoms won’t be hidden on the show. They’ll become part of the jokes themselves!
“Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours,” he tells TV Guide. “I’m being symptomatic just to annoy him — a whole passive-aggressive thing. He’s complaining because I’m shuffling and making noise upstairs. It’s very funny.”
