The picture you see above, oh, that’s just Jason Alexander, who played one of TV’s all-time greatest characters, Seinfeld‘s George Costanza, working as a barista (who makes latte art!) in a Nickelback music video. *allows a moment for a collective sigh* Since Seinfeld went off the air 14 years ago, the four main cast members have had a varying degree of success, which is to say: Julia Louis-Dreyfus has become a national treasure, while Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Richards, and Jason Alexander have either not wanted to work or have struggled to find roles worthy of their talent. Alexander’s Nickelback appearance (that hurts to type) inspired a trip through the actor’s IMDb pages, to choose their five best and seven worst post-Seinfeld roles. First, the best.
#5. Jerry Seinfeld on The Larry Sanders Show finale, “Flip”
#4-2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Arrested Development, 30 Rock, and Veep
#1. Seinfeld reunion on Curb Your Enthusiasm
#7. Jason Alexander in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle
A movie so bad, Alexander actually publicly apologized for his involvement with it. And yet he remains mum on Bob Patterson.
#6. Jerry Seinfeld in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
To quote Dustin:
Earlier today, I sat down and watched the premiere episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. I can now confirm to the rest of the world that the web series is, in fact, about comedians in cars getting coffee. It’s riveting stuff.
