View Full Version : Same actor, different character?
Did you notice that Seinfeld has had different recurring actors playing different characters. Example, the african american Jerry is talking to after a movie in the "Engagment" episode, the actor who played him reappeared in as a security guard George wanted to give a chair to in "The Mastro" episode, he then reappeared as a guy Jerry gets into a confrontation in "The Preto Rican day Period".
Though none of this actor's character has a name, it could all be the same character.

That is not the same actor playing those roles.

I think the guy talking about the movie is the same as the guy in the maroon golf. Jackie Chiles, the lawyer, is also said to be in the scene where the FBI cable sting guys shoot cable-boy Jerry but I dont know for sure. There is also an Art Vandelay guy played by the same actor who plays George!!

The actor coming out of the movie is the same as the maroon golf guy, but the security guard is someone else. I think it is Sugar Ray Leonard.

:lol: I see the resemblence :)
Carol Leifer, one of the writers (& I believe an inspiration for character "Elaine"), played a receptionist in
The Kiss Hello #103 & a bank employee (uncredited) in The Invitations #134.
Some of my favs, of course Larry David did a bunch of cameo characters (& voices).

The biggest one was probably Kate from Drew Carey Show. One episode, she plays George's girlfriend in the art class with Elaine.
And in another episode, she plays Sid Farkus's boss and costs George a bra salesman gig.

maroon gulf isnt jackie chiles. Jackie Chiles appeared in many episodes prior to the Puert Rican Day (when maroon gulf appeared) so using him as this character would make no sense.

which one was the exterminator?

MillenniumMan831, that is a good and very recognizable one...
The Sniffing Accountant #68
The Doodle #106
Here's another good one:
How 'bout actor Marty Rackman who played the exclamation point hating Jake Jarmel in:
The Sniffing Accountant #68 &
The Opposite #86
The Scofflaw #99,
and in The Trip (2) #42, Marty played the uniformed patrol officer who picked up Jer & George.
That's 4 episodes for Marty Rackman!
& KnightFalls, your sounding like George ;)
Karl (the 'Exteminator') was played by actor Ellis E. Williams in The Doodle #106 & The Diplomat's Club #108.

The older black gentleman that was a newstand operator in The Dinner Party (pack of gum, Clark bar, Penthouse) was the same guy who saw the bird fly right into Elaine's big head.

The Chinese mailman also makes an earlier appearance as a store owner/worker. Ah which way hamburger hotdog?
