David Letterman’s right-hand man, Paul Shaffer, was nearly the sidekick of another funnyman: Jerry Seinfeld.
In his new book, “We’ll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives” (out in October), the “Late Night” bandleader reveals he was offered the role of George Costanza before it went to Jason Alexander. Seinfeld handpicked Shaffer for the role and told him, “There’s no audition … You’ve got the part. Just call us back!”
Shaffer never responded — the music man says he was too busy to accept the role.
I don't know if you guys know much about alternate universes, but basically, the theory goes that for every decision one makes in life, there exists an alternate universe where one makes a different decision. If this theory is true, that means there is some crazy alternate universe where Paul Schaffer played George Constanza.
Most people believe there is no way of proving the theory of a multiverse, but if one were somehow able to peek into the alternate universe and see the different outcomes, would it be wise? Would it somehow alter our paths? Is there such a thing as fate?
I'm just a blogger! I don't know! But what I do know is I just invented a machine that allows me to peer into such an alternate universe. I was able to take pictures of this parallel world, and I have to say, the pictures are not for the squeamish.
See the pictures after the jump, if you dare!
I should quickly state, Comedy Central is not responsible for any mental anguish this betrayal of time and space may cause. Definitely NSFU (Not Safe for Universe!)
Quantum physics is a weird and groovy trip, man.
