Larry David has revealed that he truly enjoyed reuniting the cast of Seinfeld in his own series Curb Your Enthusiasm in 2009.

Curb Your Enthusiasm's seventh season featured David attempting to write a one-off Seinfeld special in order to impress his estranged wife Cheryl (Cheryl David).

The storyline culminated with David angrily quitting Seinfeld just before filming was to commence after discovering that Cheryl was having an affair with Jason Alexander.

David commented that he was very impressed by Alexander, Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards's relative ease in slipping back into their iconic Seinfeld roles for the faux-reunion.

He told The Chicago-Sun Times: "It couldn't have come out better in my mind. I thought it was great. What was surprising was just how easily everybody got right back into it. All of a sudden, they were just picking up scripts like they never left."

David also said that he was very pleased to work with guest stars Ricky Gervais and Michael J. Fox for Curb Your Enthusiasm's current run.

"Michael J. Fox was tremendous," he affirmed. "We had a blast working together. He wasn't shy at all about dealing with his condition [Parkinson's disease]… Ricky's on playing himself, although it's not as much of himself as I'm playing myself."

Curb Your Enthusiasm actor and producer Jeff Garlin recently claimed that he and David developed an almost-instant rapport when they first began working on the series in 1999.

The eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm continues Sunday on HBO.
