Pretty boy Keith Hernandez was only in three episodes of Seinfeld, Season 3’s two-part “The Boyfriend” and the contentious series finale, but he’s still making enough money from those guest spots to buy only the finest mustache max. While talking to NJ‘s Mike Vorkunov, the current New York Mets announcer said he gets a royalty check “every time they show [the episodes]… I’m going to say I get a check every month. Nothing less than six weeks. They show it all the time. It’s international and everything.” Hernandez also revealed how much they’re for.

What do you make per episode, if you don’t mind me asking?

It used to be almost $1,000. It diminishes as the years go by. So it gives me around $3,000 per year. I’ll take it. For doing nothing. So you can imagine what Jerry gets. The principal actors, what they get. (Via)

“Crazy” Joe Davola, who was in five episodes, must be living high on the hog.
