If you, like me, are weirdly obsessed with the iconic ’90s comedy that is Seinfeld, you may often find yourself awake at 3 am deep-diving into bizarre rabbit holes of trivia about the legendary sitcom.
More likely, though, you don’t do that because you’re a normal, functioning human being – so that’s where I come in!
The hugely popular series created by comedy legend Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld has been credited for kick-starting the careers of several up-and-coming stars who would later go on to be successful in their own right, including Bryan Cranston, Courtney Cox and Denise Richards.
While the now-famous faces are pretty easy to spot, another bit of trivia for you Seinhards out there is that across the nine seasons, Seinfeld actually used a few of their guest stars more than once in various roles, and you may be surprised to find out exactly which ones…
This one truly surprised us! Actor Marty Rackham first played one of the LA cops who pick up Jerry and George in season four episode The Trip (Part 2) and later was known as Jake Jarmel – laine’s on and off boyfriend who dumps her for stopping to get Jujyfruits (and popcorn) on her way to the hospital.
