    Ok, I've done this on the Office forum and on the Friends forum, it's never been a major hit...but it's an interesting topic, so if you had...keyword being had (this is totally for fun so no loyalty to any actor is necessary) to recast Seinfeld who would you cast to play the roles of

    Jerry

    George

    Elaine

    Kramer

    Newman

    ...feel free to recast as many characters as you want...I just listen the 4 leads and Newman...

    I dont want to be the guy who says, I would keep tha cast just like it is, but I would. There is something about the actors, and it seems like they are the only one's who can play there roles

    Yeah. I agree. Seinfeld wouldn't be what it was without those four exact actors. Well, maybe Elaine could be played by any dull-looking (by TV standards) female.

    The idea of Larry David as George will always make me wonder...

    Eh! Have you seen Curb Your Enthusiasm? He hasn't the enthusiasm to be a good George.

    To replace Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine...how about Tina Fey?  Same angst-ridden, eye-rolling type of New Yorker...

    do you know what might be interesting? Jim Carey as Kramer. Although he may even be too out there for that.
