President Obama earned another notch in his hail-to-Hollywood belt Thursday evening, with a Hanukkah celebration at the White House that included the co-creator of the successful “Seinfeld” television series, Larry David.

Mr. David was captured by Fox News’ Ed Henry making an entrance up the White House drive, The Hill reported.

Mr. Henry tweeted: “Larry David arrives at WH for #Hanukkah reception. ‘I’m going to party,’ he says.”

This isn’t the first time Mr. Obama has hung with the “Seinfeld” brainchild — who also played a crotchety, curmudgeonly version of himself on the HBO series, “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Mr. David also played golf with the president in August, when the first family vacationed at Martha’s Vineyard, The Hill reported.

Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are hosting two events to honor Hanukkah this year, The Hill reported.
