Soup for You

What do you do if you starred on a major sitcom over a decade ago and haven't had work since? Well obviously you capitalize on that branding as much as you can to cling to those fleeting moments-even if that means riding around on a food truck giving out free food. Yep, that's what actor Larry Thomas aka The Soup Nazi from Seinfeld is doing.
From the end of July through next week, he will make his way in the Soup Nazimobile from Albuquerque, to Chicago, Philly, Boston, NYC, and Baltimore giving out free mulligatawny soup, and other foods iconic to Seinfeld including Junior Mints, muffin tops, black and white cookies, Twix and Snapple. As an actor, I find this publicity stunt tragic. His agent and  resume couldn't even land this poor man a job in summer stuck at Lake Winnipesaukee? Dancing with the "Stars?" Commercials for Campbell's? Anything? Yikes. Is it too late for me to go to law school? At least I can get some free food on August 1st when it rolls through Manhattan. Just don't take too long ordering or tell him he looks like Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman. Next!
