. Ten years ago everyone would say that to me. Then, in the last year, I was at a newsstand in Studio City, and I saw George Wendt. He said he had just gone on an audition, and they said they were looking for a Jeff Garlin type." So says once-portly actor-writer Jeff Garlin, best known for his role as Larry David's enabler on Curb Your Enthisiasm
