Jason Alexander joins Valerie Bertinelli as the newest celebrity spokesperson for Jenny Craig

BY Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News - He may not end up as thin as a Festivus pole, but former "Seinfeld" star Jason Alexander plans to drop a load of pounds as the new spokesman for weight-loss company Jenny Craig.

Alexander, who played the portly George Costanza on the hit 90s sitcom, decided to try the Jenny Craig program after watching himself in a recent "Curb Your Enthusiasm" episode — and hating what he saw.

"I looked at myself playing a character I started playing 20 years ago and yes, he had aged - but what was disturbing is that he was no longer in a body I cared to recognize," Alexander said.
"It's like someone's clubbing me over the head it's so obvious I should be doing this," he told

Alexander, who joins Valerie Bertinelli as a Jenny Craig spokesperson, said he was inspired to get on the program after seeing how she successfully slimmed down.

"I'm trying not only to do it for myself but I'm encouraging other guys to come on board and say we can do this," said Alexander, who blames the extra pounds on the sympathy-weight he gained during his wife's pregnancies — plus the good food served on the "Seinfeld" set.

Alexander said his goal was to shed 30 to 40 pounds — about the same amount of weight he gained since the early days of "Seinfeld."
