  • Catherine Keener is an artist girlfriend of Jerry's who paints the famous "Kramer" portrait.

    This is totally amazing and I just now realized it. Catherine Keener (an amazing actress, twice nominated for Oscars and of 40 Year Old Virgin fame) plays an artist girl-friend of Jerry. If you haven't heard, there is a giant plagiaring scandal concerning Jerry Seinfeld's wife in real life, Jessica. This woman changed her name from Nina to Jessica, married Eric Nederlander and dumped him for Seinfeld only weeks after their marraige. In this particular episode, NINA plagerized "the Letter" by stealing dialogue from Neil Simon's "Chapter Two". This is absolutely incredible because Jessica/Nina Seinfeld is being accused of plagiarizing her cookbook "Deceptively Delicious" after 'tricking' Oprah to endorse it on her show. This has been written up in the New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and other respected publications. Incredible as it seems, this is exactly what this episode concerns including the name 'Nina'.
