Jason Alexander to co-host People’s Awards

Los Angeles:

Jason Alexander has it on good authority that his job as co-host of the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday is unlikely to have a big payoff. “My good friend Jerry Seinfeld had the greatest quote, and it’s so true. He said these things are a no-win situation: If you really screw it up, you’re a complete jerk. If it goes brilliantly, all you get is they ask you to do it again,” Alexander said. He’ll share the adventure of hosting with Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who

stars with Alexander in the new CBS sitcom “Listen Up.”

Scheduled presenters at the ceremony airing 9 p.m. EST Sunday on CBS include Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Ellen DeGeneres, Josh Duhamel, William Shatner and Prince. Alexander (“Seinfeld”) said he and Warner (“The Cosby Show”) have roughed out an approach but know it’s the awards that count, not the hosts. Unexpected reactions from winners are welcome. — AP
