Best Seinfeld Characters #5 – Newman
The mailman who lives down the hall is also Jerry’s sworn enemy. Newman has a knack for always causing Jerry trouble, whether knocking on his door or coming up with a diabolical plan to thwart someone, Newman is always up to something.

He’s pure evil.”

Best Seinfeld Characters #3 – Jerry Seinfeld
An ordinary guy working night clubs as a standup comic, Jerry definitely has a lot of material to work with. With his wacky group of friends, all the people he meets on a daily basis and the endless number of girlfriends that he has, Jerry is one busy man. His apartment is never to himself because people are always in there and when his parents visit him, everything must be put on hold. Just don’t let Uncle Leo get near him! Oh, and don’t forget what he did while watching Schindler’s List!
#2 – Cosmo Kramer
He surely has the goofiest hairstyle and possibly the dirtiest apartment, Kramer is your man when you need him most. Kramer has a knack for getting into trouble and getting into bad scenarios but he’s always makes the best of it. He has some truly outlandish ideas and has the best entrance when entering Jerry’s apartment, oh I forgot they live across the hall from each other. No matter what you need, where you need to go just need some advice, Kramer is your man!
#1 – George Costanza
If there’s one person where everything that could possibly go wrong it’s going to happen to George. No luck with women or even the job market, George has even a worse time when he visits his parents. He may be Jerry’s best friend, but everywhere else he a loser to most people. Nevertheless, George will push on and if it makes any problem worse, George will deliver in spades. He worked for the Yankees, had an amazing voicemail message and even went opposite one day. There’s no one quite like our little friend George. Just remember one of his best lines, “George is getting upset!”
