Jason Alexander recently Tweeted about the new hair "system" he's been sporting to diversify his casting opportunities. The $3,000 state-of-the-art toupee makes its TV debut on Harry's Law October 19 when Jason plays Richard Cross, a fired high school biology teacher who hires Harry (Kathy Bates) to get his job back.
In retrospect, Jason says the character "would have made more sense bald. He's a dork." While completely open about his new 'do (he's already ordered a second toupee), Jason hopes his fans will be none the wiser. "The biggest image people have of me is from the reruns of Seinfeld, and I'm just trying to put my hair back to the way it was then," he says.
Nonetheless, "I'm waiting for Jerry [Seinfeld] to rag on me. When he sees me with this, I'm sure I'll get an email saying, 'What the hell are you doing?'"
