I was watching Seinfeld last night and couldn’t stop thinking about how much I like Jerry Stiller. Between Frank Costanza on Seinfeld and Arthur Spooner on King of Queens, he has brought me an awful lot of joy.
Jeremiah Birkett appeared as Jean Paul on Seinfeld. Jean Paul was a visiting marathon runner who once slept through his alarm to miss the Olympics. Here’s a clip of some of his scenes. I prefer the ones after George teaches him to swear like a Texan.
Michael Richards, famous for his long stint as Kramer on Seinfeld and his extremely racist rant at the Laugh Factory, was part of the “just watchable” Airheads. He sported a nice mustache and spent most of the movie in an air duct.
