Of the main four, who do you feel was the most important character, the one that completed the show?
I'm guessing many will say Jerry since he was the central character, but to me Kramer is the one who elevated the show to true greatness.

ALL. It was an ensemble cast with all parts integral. I suppose the show COULD have survived without one or the other, but it wouldn't have been the same.

No, nobody is more important than anyone else. They ALL needed each other. It's the cast as a whole that makes it the greatest show ever, not any one character. Without the other 3, Kramer would just be a goof. George would just be a loud, insecure bald guy, etc...

I think Jerry was the glue holding everyone else together but as was mentioned, each of them is integral to the show itself.

If you remember, the pilot didn't do too well with the first Elaine actor. It didn't take off until the real Elaine actor joined their circus.

But, you need all of them to make the machine work.

But, if you're talking about other characters other than the original four, then I'd say George's parents would be top on the list!!! Boy do I miss their high-pitched demands!

Definatley ensemble cast, like others have said. But Jerry held the show together, I couldn't picture Kramer coming into anyone elses apartment, or anyone else delivering Jerry's quick little jokes that are so underappreciated.


Mr. Tony T:

There is no official "sign up", you just post, and hope nobody else has your name.

I didn't make up the other Elaine actress. I saw the story about this twice on TV.

Someone out there has to know about this first Elaine actor.

Anybody? Confused

there was never "another" elaine. elaine wasn't introduced until the second episode. there was, however, another female character in the pilot episode named lee garlington who played a waitress called claire. garlington is introduced in the opening credits, so presumably, if the pilot had taken off, she might have become a regular co-star, and there may never have been an elaine.

Yes, that's probably what I'm thinking about. The feature mentioned that Julia L-D really completed the "Fantastic Four" set nicely.

Smile Thanks for the info. I was searching forever online last night trying to find details.

From the little time I've been here, I've noticed alot of George hate. What's up with that? George is my favorite character, he's just hilarious.

But, every character is really needed for the show to work. Each one compliments the others perfectly. Together they make your average group of friends. The goofy one, the cheap angry one, the woman, and the leader. It just wouldn't be the same together.
