TV Guide reports that Michael J. Fox and Michael Gross will guest star in the upcoming eighth season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, starring Larry David:
“Larry moves to New York and takes the apartment below ours,” teases Fox, who pops up as himself in Episode 10. The story’s gimmick is similar to his recurring role on The Good Wife, in which he plays an attorney who gains sympathy in the courtroom by exploiting a neurological disorder. (In real life, Fox has battled Parkinson’s disease since 1991). The Curb subplot finds Larry believing that “I’m being symptomatic just to annoy him — a whole passive-aggressive thing,” Fox says. “He’s complaining because I’m shuffling and making noise upstairs. It’s very funny.”
Earlier in the season, Fox’s Family Ties dad, Gross, appears alongside Richard Lewis in a funny funeral scene. “I play Larry’s dermatologist,” Gross says, hinting at a possibly troubling diagnosis for Larry.
The eighth season premiere July 10.
