Seinfeld's Liz Sheridan on Her New Film, James Dean and Jerry Seinfeld

PRESS PLAY TO LISTEN Best known for her role as Jerry Seinfeld's mother in the monster hit series, Seinfeld, Liz Sheridan has been in the business for decades. Many also know her from the hit sitcom, Alf but few know she actually dated screen legend James Dean for years. In fact in her memoir, Dizzy & Jimmy she chronicles her life with Dean when the two were young lovers long before he became a star.

Now, Sheridan is starring in a new romantic comedy film called, Play the Game, also starring Andy Griffith, Doris Roberts, Paul Campbell and Marla Sokoloff. It tells the story of a grandson who guides his grandfather (Griffith) in finding new love. One of the love interests is Sheridan who slips some Viagra in Griffith's drink one evening for a hot romantic evening he'll never forget.

In my interview with Sheridan, she discusses her rise to fame, her new film and what she really thinks of Jerry Seinfeld after working side by side with him for nearly a decade. PRESS PLAY TO LISTEN
