While the country continues to mourn the losses incurred inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater last week, and while new information continues to leak out about shooting James Holmes, a debate has also taken shape around America:

Considering the types of automatic weapons Holmes purchased legally, should the topic of gun control be more firmly addressed in light of the latest massacre?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made his feelings on the topic known, as have a number of celebrities.

  • Ice-T Photograph
  • Jason Alexander on Seinfeld

Let's focus on two because they possess such contrasting opinions.

In an interview over the weekend, rapper/actor Ice-T took expressed his take: “The right to bear arms is because it’s the last form of defense against tyranny... If somebody wants to kill people, they don’t need a gun to do it.”

He later Tweeted: “If you go into the jungle…. Will you NOT get eaten because you’re a vegan??”

Now, let's hear from Jason Alexander of Seinfeld fame, also via Twitter: “I cannot understand support for legality of the kind of weapon in this massacre. It’s a military weapon. Why should it be in non-mil hands?"

Two sides. One contentious issue. Where do YOU stand? Should automatic weapons be made legally available to the public?

Like Michael Richards before him, Jason Alexander has struggled to find show business success following Seinfeld.

Also like Michael Richards before him, the actor now finds himself in a bit of controversy. But Alexander at least avoided any kind of racist rant for the ages.

Appearing on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson Friday, Alexander was asked about his feelings on cricket and responded as follows:

"It's the pitch... It's not like a manly baseball pitch; it's a queer British gay pitch."

If you're running for national office, lovable Seinfeld loser George Costanza may not be a figure you should readily and enthusiastically equate yourself to.

But Mitt Romney did, and now Jason Alexander is commenting on it.

In his opening remarks at the Arizona Republican debate Wednesday, Mitt said, "I want to restore America's promise, and I'm going to do that."

Before he could continue, the crowd began applauding, so the candidate quipped, "As George Costanza would say, 'when they're applauding, stop.'"

Romney and Alexander

Jason Alexander, who played Costanza on the long-running series, used it as an opening to poke some fun at Romney and his penchant for changing positions.

He tweets, "Thrilled that Gov. Romney enjoys my old character. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he'd embrace that again, he'd b a great candidate."

Ohhhh, snap.

Just FYI, the actual quote was spoken from Jerry Seinfeld, speaking to George about how to end a conversation, though Constanza famously followed the advice.

Seinfeld says, "When you hit that high note, you say goodnight and walk off." Still, for the purposes of Romney's use, he was close enough this time.

The Hollywood Gossip is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world that you might never have considered. Because they are pointless, and above all, not real.

Our current match-up features an acclaimed actor we feel like we know personally after his many neurotic, hilarious years on Seinfeld, and some random dude who happens to share the same name, and who we only know because he once got with Britney Spears.

Jason Alexander Mug Shot

That's right, it's the Jason Alexander who was married to Britney Spears for less than three days back in 2004, versus the Jason Alexander best known as George Constanza from 1989-1998. Who will emerge victorious? Let's find out...

1. REAL NAME

Edge: Jason Alexander (Britney)

THE VERDICT: The goofball comic proved too much for his younger, Britney banging namesake, eking out a 5.5-4.5 victory. Michael Richards would be proud - if not a little spiteful and insane. But we have a feeling that among these two Jason Alexanders, we'll be hearing more from the charming hick from Louisiana in the coming months. Because he knows Britney. That's kind of how the celebrity gossip business works - no offense Jason.
