Masters of the Commentary Track Domain
I've been waiting for these DVDs to come out. Now it seems they won't be as intersting as they could be.
Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Michael Richards have refused to be interviewed for the DVD home-video release of Seinfeld after being offered only a small recording fee and being denied a percentage of the DVD's sales, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. A representative for one of the performers, who refused to be identified, told the newspaper: "They all said, 'Why should we make other people richer?'" A spokesman for Jerry Seinfeld said that he hoped to talk to the three after the New Year "and persuade them to change their minds."
Castle Rock is planning to release the first season of Seinfeld on DVD next December.
Pay them sum bux. Yeah, they've already made millions. That's what the DVD distributors are trying to do as well. Share the wealth. It's them we want to see/hear, not the distributor.
