Carmen Electra going head to head with Larry David? It may not stack up as the next ‘Seinfeld’ reunion, but the ‘Baywatch’ star says she wants to be the next guest star on David’s long-running scripted improv comedy ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’

“It is my favorite show,” Electra tells Fancast of HBO’s ‘Curb,’ of which show she would most like to guest-star on. “I think anytime you love something, you put your heart into it, it would be fun. And I think it’s fun to improvise. Sometimes it’s easier, with such a great cast like that.”

Electra, who became famous in the 1990s as a Playboy model and TV star, has tried mostly physical comedy films in recent years, including ‘Starsky & Hutch,’ ‘Meet the Spartans,’ and ‘Disaster Movie.’ (Some of those films are among some of the worst reviewed in recent years, it should be noted.)

Speaking at last week’s Monster energy Music Saves Lives party in Hollywood, Electra explains of her credentials, “I was actually a guest on [Comedy Central's] ‘Reno 911,’ and we improvised that. [I am] such a huge fan. You put it out there, and sometimes you do these things. It’s really cool.”

Electra guest-starred on one episode of ‘Reno 911′ last year in the show’s sixth season in which the cast switched over their old VHS tapes to DVD format.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ which just finished its run of new episodes on its seventh season last November, had guest stars including Christian Slater, Elisabeth Shue, Ben Affleck, and of course the original ‘Seinfeld’ cast.

The show has yet to announce an eighth season.
