Actor John O'Hurley's impressive stint on ABC TV's "Dancing with the Stars" has sparked a new career life for the former "Seinfeld" co-star.

Previously best known as Elaine's boss J. Peterman on the long-running NBC comedy, O'Hurley recently impressed TV viewers and entertainment industry execs alike with his good humor, dignity and smooth dance moves on "Dancing with the Stars."

The avid canine lover has a book coming out next year, "It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump," which examines the relationship between people and dogs, the New York Post said Friday.

He's in talks to join the Broadway production of "Chicago" and negotiating an unscripted sitcom-reality show with Fox.

On top of all that, the Post said O'Hurley is being considered to host a TV talk show.
