Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, who co-created "Seinfeld," are headed off to Broadway together. Possibly.

In a conversation with Showbiz 411, David ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") said that he has written a play, and he hints that Seinfeld--who has been busy as of late on the press circuit, with the second season of his web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," currently underway--will star in it.

According to the Jan. 11 column by the entertainment news site:

Larry [David], whose hilarious HBO movie “Clear History” I just re-watched, told me: “I’ve written a play.” A play? For, like, Broadway? “Yes.” And Jerry would star in it? “Maybe,” he said. “We’re talking about it.”

A play by David would continue his streak of branching out from television writing. His latest effort, "Clear History," was a full-length film that premiered on HBO last year. 

No word on when David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," his most successful project since "Seinfeld" ended, will return for a ninth season.

The Showbiz article follows up on a news-making statement that Seinfeld made during a recent Reddit "Ask Me Anything" intervew. Seinfeld said that he and David "wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can't reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it's big, huge, gigantic."

Is this mysterious project one-and-the-same as David's play? Today, Vulture.com pointed out that the Showbiz piece "doesn't say outright if this [the play] is what Seinfeld was alluding to."

While we eagerly await an answer, enjoy an old "Curb" clip, featuring the two Jewish comics arguing about restaurant napkins:
