You may remember him as the curmudgeonly character of George Costanza on the cult comedy hit, Seinfeld. But there's so much more to Jason Alexander than his sitcom stardom. Not only is he a magician, poker champ, and a Broadway triple-threat, but he's also the Artistic Director of Reprise! Broadway's Best in Los Angeles and an outspoken supporter of One Voice, an organization which works to promote peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Alexander recently told us about which famous figures he would love to speak with over drinks and, not surprisingly, his answers were as varied as his talents. Here's who he chose:
1. Harry S. Truman. A remarkable President with limited formal education. I'd want to pick his brain to learn how he mastered the various disciplines of politics he needed to make some of the hardest decisions in American history. 2. Woody Allen. To get his reading list; pick his brain about comedy and cinema; get a finer understanding of his moral compass; and ask why he's never cast me in any of his films. 3. Paddy Chayefsky. One of the most brilliant dramatists who goes largely unsung in so many circles, but wrote the single greatest screenplay: Network. 4. Mother Teresa. To try to understand the true value and struggles of faith, and the depths of true compassion and selflessness (though I doubt she drinks). 5. Jennifer Aniston. I know I'm no Brad Pitt, but I think if I could get a couple of drinks in her, she'd go for me.
