10 Famous People You Didn't Know Played Bit Parts On Seinfeld

Sarahsilverman Seinfeld It's pretty common knowledge that "Seinfeld" is perhaps the greatest sitcom in television history. Over the course of 9 seasons, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer showed us that four seriously self-absorbed friends can be the funniest people we've ever known. A show about nothing and everything all at once, "Seinfeld" is and forever shall be a cultural phenomenon. One thing that's interesting about "Seinfeld" is that no matter how many times you watch it, you always find something new to appreciate. Since the stories of each episode were so ordinary (waiting to be seated at a Chinese restaurant, looking for a car in a labyrinthine parking garage) they always connected with the personal lives of the audience. As you got older, you'd have more experiences, and therefore would be able to relate to yet another episode of the show. Since "Seinfeld" is still shown regularly on multiple channels, you've got plenty of chances to make these connections. Another benefit of "Seinfeld's" syndication is that you can always spot someone famous in a rather small role. Most actors that appear in these supporting parts are just getting their careers off the ground, so you'd never recognize them then. For instance, when Bryan Cranston was on five episodes of "Seinfeld" as the dentist Tim Whatley, nobody knew who he was. But watching a rerun now, people say "Oh my God! That's Walter White from 'Breaking Bad'!" "Seinfeld" played host to dozens of now-famous stars during its tenure. Buzzfeed actually put together a pretty solid list already of 34 recognizable actors from the show. But believe it or not, there are still a good deal of people they left out! These are some of those people.
