See the characters of “Seinfeld” then and now.

“Seinfeld” started on Tv in 1989 and ran for nine seasons, becoming one of America’s most popular sitcoms. It was created by Larry David and starred Jerry Seinfeld as a fictional version of himself. The show was about the stand-up comedian, three of his neurotic friends, and the everyday situations and relationships that drove them crazy. It isn’t easy to believe that the show ended 15 years ago. There are still reruns of “Seinfeld” on many TV networks, where new and old fans can watch classic episodes weekly. To mark the anniversary of the end of one of the best sitcoms of all time, we’re taking a look back at your favourite cast members to see what they’re up to now.

Jerry Seinfeld, Himself

Then, Jerry Seinfeld played a fake version of himself: a moderately famous New York stand-up comedian who is the sanest of his group of friends, even though he is still pretty neurotic and a total neat-freak.

Now, Seinfeld has been on “30 Rock” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” with Larry David, and he still does stand-up. He also made the web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and is its host.

Jason Alexander, George Costanza

Then, Jason Alexander played Jerry’s best friend, George Costanza, who is often very small-minded and dishonest because he is not sure of himself. Alexander was inspired by Woody Allen when he played George, which is why he wore glasses even though he doesn’t need them in real life. Danny DeVito, David Alan Grier, and Nathan Lane were also thought of for the part.

Now, Alexander has been a guest star on “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike and Molly,” and “Community,” in a very memorable musical episode. He has also done voice work for “American Dad” and “China, IL” on Adult Swim.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Elaine Benes

After that, Julia Louis- Dreyfus’s Elaine wasn’t planned to be in the show at first, and she didn’t show up in the first episode. Elaine is Jerry’s ex-girlfriend. The character is based on Seinfeld’s friend Carol Leifer, who dated him in real life. The part was tried out by Rosie O’Donnell, Megan Mullally, Mariska Hargitay, and Patricia Heaton.

Now, Louis-Dreyfus stars as Vice President Selina Meyer on the HBO show “Veep.” She was also in the independent movie “Enough Said,” in which James Gandolfini played one of his last roles.

Michael Richards, Cosmo Kramer

Then, Michael Richards played Jerry’s crazy neighbour across the hall, Cosmo Kramer. Cosmo always comes into Jerry’s apartment without knocking and in a crazy way.

Now, Richards had a voice part in Seinfeld’s 2007 animated film “Bee Movie,” and he also took part in the “Seinfeld” reunion on Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which lasted for several episodes. He is now the star of Kirstie Alley’s new TV Land sitcom, “Kirstie.”

Newman and Wayne Knight

Then, Wayne Knight played Newman, a neighbour and mailman who lived in Jerry and Kramer’s building. Newman was Jerry’s enemy, and Jerry always said “Hello, Newman” to him in a mean way. Knight had already been in “Dirty Dancing” and “Born on the Fourth of July,” and in 1992, he made his first appearance on “Seinfeld.”

You might know Knight from his parts in “Jurassic Park” and “3rd Rock from the Sun.” He is currently on the sitcom “The Exes,” and his voice has been used in animated movies like “Kung Fu Panda” and “Regular Show.”

Jerry Stiller, Frank Costanza

Then, John Randolph was replaced by Jerry Stiller as George Costanza’s eccentric and very excited father, Frank. Ben Stiller, who is also an actor, is his son.

Now: After “Seinfeld,” Stiller starred in the sitcom “The King of Queens.” He has also been in his son’s movies “Zoolander” and “The Heartbreak Kid.”

Estelle Harris, Estelle Costanza

Then, Estelle Harris played Estelle, George’s theatrical mother, who often fights with her husband and son. Harris had been on “Night Court” and “Married with Children” in the past.

Now, Harris voices Mrs Potatohead in the “Toy Story” movies and shorts, and she plays Muriel on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” on the Disney Channel.

Heidi Swedberg, Susan Ross

Then, Heidi Swedberg played Susan, George’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, who dies from licking poisonous wedding invitation envelopes while engaged.

Now, Swedberg’s primary focus is on her music. She has been a guest star on shows like “ER” and “Gilmore Girls” for a long time. But her music is now her main focus. She has been playing the ukulele since she was a child and currently plays with the band Heidi Swedberg and the Sukey Jump Band. Her last acting job was a guest role on the TV show “Hawthorne” in 2010.

John O’Hurley and Jacopo

Then, John O’Hurley played Jacopo Peterman, the founder of the J. Peterman Company and Elaine’s boss, for a while. He fired her when she tested positive for opium after eating poppy seed muffins. The character of Peterman is based on a real-life businessman named John Peterman.

Now, O’Hurley lends his voice to shows like “Phineas and Ferb,” “The Looney Tunes Show,” and “Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.” He has been in charge of the National Dog Show since 2002 and is often in the order of ‘Game Show America.’
