Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jerry Seinfeld on James Gandolfini and "Enough Said"

It almost felt like a "Seinfeld" reunion on the New York red carpet Monday night at a special screening of "Enough Said."

The new comedy stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini as a couple who validate the adage that opposites attract.

While posing for photographers, Louis-Dreyfus was spotted on the red carpet with her old sitcom co-star Jerry Seinfeld. The two have remained good friends since their hit show about nothing went off the air in 1998.

Seinfeld told CBSNews.com that while he was at the screening mostly to support Louis-Dreyfus, he also wanted to pay tribute to the late Gandolfini.

"It's fantastic to see him one more time," Seinfeld said, "It's sad, but I'm excited to see him again."

Gandolfini died in Juneafter suffering a heart attack while vacationing in Rome. He was 51. "Enough Said" was one of his last two film roles, the other being "Animal Rescue," which comes out in 2014.

Louis-Dreyfus said that despite her co-star's sudden death, the release of "Enough Said" was a triumphant occasion.

"The fact that this performance is a part of James Gandolfini's legacy is something to celebrate," she said. "He gave a beautiful performance of a kind, thoughtful, self-effacing generous character, very similar to who he was as a person. And I think his fans are going to be absolutely delighted."

"Enough Said" opens in theaters on Wednesday.
