For “a show about nothing,” Seinfeld made a huge splash in the entertainment world. Lots of well-loved actors made their start on everybody’s favorite sitcom.
Years before she starred as Susan on Desperate Housewives, Hatcher had a role as Jerry’s girlfriend on Seinfeld, and also guest starred in both “The Pilot” and “The Finale” episodes.
Cranston had to start somewhere—and in his case, it was as Jerry’s dentist Tim Whatley. Fans will remember Kramer and Jerry’s iconic exchange that coined the phrase, “anti-dentite.”
Perhaps we have Seinfeld to thank for Walter White!
Before her famous starring role on Will and Grace, Messing played Beth Lukner, a friend of Jerry and Elaine, in two episodes.
Griffin is best known for her stand-up comedy (and her off-the-wall antics), and she had a cameo on Seinfeld as Sally Weaver, an old roommate of George’s girlfriend, Susan.
Philbin had already achieved fame by the time he got his Seinfeld cameo, but it was still a memorable one—of course, he played the announcer for a Miss America pageant.
