Jerry Seinfeld lands 'dream guest' for new season of 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

Jerry Seinfeld announced his lineup for the 11th season of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which includes his "dream guest," Eddie Murphy.

Seinfeld told reporters at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Wednesday that guests like Murphy are why he does the show, calling him "a nut you want to crack."

The two sat side by side during a small screening and conversation hosted by Netflix in the L.A. venue.

"My favorite thing is when you tell the story of bombing [onstage] and then getting in the car and going to dinner to eat and just laughing and laughing," he told Murphy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I feel like we brought a certain feeling or perspective on Eddie that people really want to see and maybe have been missing," Seinfeld added.

The two comics started their stand-up careers in New York more than 40 years ago in 1976 — at the same comedy club, according to Variety.

Seinfeld “was always the funniest. He had his show down, he was polished, he had it all down before everybody,” Murphy said. “I remember he had got a Saab…and we were all on the side, like ‘He bought this with jokes," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Murphy admitted he's considering a return to stand-up. "You've got to start all over again," he said about the process. "We’re talking about a lot of rust. Actually, I think I would be like a fish to water; it’s who I am."
