When I was visiting Ireland in 2000, I watched the Seinfeld episode "The Handicap Spot". Jerry Stiller however was no where to be seen. Instead, another actor I never saw before played Frank Costanza's role. All the actors where there, and the scenes were exactly the same, except for Jerry Stiller. I always wondered if anyone had answer for this.

The actor you're seeing playing Frank Costanza in "The Handicap Spot" is John Randolph. The U.S. syndicated version of this episode features Jerry Stiller in the role of Frank Costanza because all the sequences with Frank Costanza were re-shot in the spring of 1995. However, the John Randolph version of that episode is still seen overseas.
