||played Jerry Seinfeld in Seinfeld
Jerry Seinfeld, although portraying himself on the show, creates more of a caricature of himself throughout its run. He is stand-up comic living in New York. He is neurotic and constantly likes to question things in everyday life. He's friends with George Costanza, Elaine Benes and neighbor Cosmo Kramer. Although throughout the series he didn't have much success as a Comedian early on, he then gets a development deal from NBC to produce a sitcom.
His arch rivalry with Newman led to the globally popular quote "Hello Newman".
