Forget filling in for Regis, Jerry Seinfeld might have a new job as a case-cracking gumshoe.

Amid the renewed speculation over Natalie Wood's mysterious death, Slate's Brow Beat Blog thought back to an apt conversation between Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld during season seven of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

Of course, the comic geniuses did not mean to end up speculating on the status of Wood's death. It was -- as it always is -- a tangent within a tangent.

But still, we must admire Seinfeld's ability to sniff out suspicious activity.

Since the case has been re-opened, however, Christopher Walken has taken proactive measures and hired a lawyer.
