Paul Shaffer says Jerry Seinfeld wanted him to play George

Paul Shaffer says in the interview (video below), that Jerry Seinfeld wanted him to play the role of George on the hit show Seinfeld. He received a message from Castle Rock Productions (actually Castle Rock Entertainment), Rob Reiner's company, from Jerry Seinfeld asking him to play the part as his sidekick in a new series.

Shaffer didn't recognize Seinfeld's name so never answered the message.

 It's not that Shaffer hasn't done well for himself as David Letterman's musical sidekick, but missing out on Seinfeld is sort of like being the fifth Beatle.
