The Actors Fund, an organization which provides health and social services to actors, has selected Seinfeld star Jason Alexander as this year’s recipient of the Julie Harris Award for Lifetime Achievement award.

Alexander will receive the award on June 10 at an awards dinner at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.  Julie Harris, who the award is named after, is a five-time Tony Award winner.  Previous recipients of the award include Hal Holbrook, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Chita Rivera.

Alexander is no stranger to awards, having previously been awarded a Drama Desk and a Tony Award for Jerome Robbins’ Broadway and three Screen Actors Guild Awards for Seinfeld (two as a member of the ensemble).  He is currently the artistic director of the Reprise Theatre Company, although the company recently canceled its productions these year because of financial difficulties, including slow advance ticket sales.
