'Curb' Star -- I'm HOPING For a Spin-Off!

7/19/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joanie and Chachi did it ... so did "The Jeffersons" ... so ya think there's a chance Leon from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" can lock down his own spin-off too???

We spoke to JB Smoove in NY yesterday -- who told us he's already come up with a couple of titles ... just in case if the powers that be at HBO ever give his character "Leon" his own show.

Keep your fingers crossed.

A spin-off for that stupid a$$ character???????

Please, God, no. When Smoove is on camera, Curb is barely watchable.

He should have his own spin-off from "Curb Your Enthusiasm". They can call it "We Not Only Curbed Our Enthusiasm But Are Not Even Mildly Interested".

I agree with Dustin. Leon is hilarious! Was great to see him again in the new season.

Give him his own show. That guy is very funny. So glad Curbed is back, with Leon! Go JB, go Jb, go! I will watch anything he is in. Sorry to the people who don't get him. A sense of humor helps.

Leon is a great character and I would watch. Of course,it's also the writers and casting that make Curb so great. Take that away and you have the crap that the traditional networks spew out year after year. Larry proves that intelligent comedy still exists.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" is one of the few genuinely funny sitcoms to EVER be on TV. It is unen***bered by a foolish laugh track and not full of the dull, moronic, and trite teenybopper fare that is obviously tailored for the intellectually challenged (Like most other shows calling themselves comedy). This is just a great show! And, Leon is definitely part of it. PERIOD!

This guy is such a great addition to the show....especially playing off Larry's "character" (is really more of a reality show). I love their interactions! They would really have to structure it well in giving him more screen time. He is great in small increments, just not sure if it might work as the main character

He was a funny guy but not funny enough for a spin-off. Larry David might be the best writer if is happens though

Curb has gone downhill year after year, with season 7 being the one that sunk it to new lows, so i'm shocked that there is season 8 (and surely this must be the last), but Leon is one of the only characters left that I like so would be good to see the creative forces move with a new premise.
