Michael Richards

 

  1. Ed O’Neill, Married With Children, TV, 1987-1997.  Before his iconic triumph as Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld, TV, 1900-1998, the Vietnam veteran  auditioned for poor Al Bundy... with a  lazy  wife, dysfunctional son and   promiscuous daughter. Richards won a callback and believed he was “head-to-head, probably” with O’Neill. “But God! Look how he played it - he was so perfect for the role.”
  2. Buddy Hackett, The Little Mermaid, 1989.   Two TV stars,  the trenchant comic-cum-social critic and Seinfeld’s Kramer neighbour, Richards - were up for voicing Scuttle the Seagull.
  3. Daniel Stern,  Home Alone, 1990.   John Hughes wrote Marv for Stern. Director Chris Columbus also considered Seinfeld’s Kramer for the one of two doltish burglars being thwarted by brainy kid Macauley Culkin. When Stern’agent wanted too much moiey, Columbus started shooting with Daniel Roebuck - was soon dropped him, for Stern. 
  4. Randy Quaid, Kingpin, 1996. The Farrelly brothers called himr about tenpin bowing... He even started growing a beard for it.
  5. Tony Shalhoub, Monk, TV, 2002-2009.  His Michael Richards Show broke like a mirror in 2000 and, like all Seinfelders, Richards was seeking a new show - and new, non-Kramer career.  He was way too extrovert for this cop suffering obsessive compulsive disorder. In more than 100 episodes, the more subtle Shalhoub was nominated six times for an Emmy award - and won three - while Richards’ racist tirade in 2006 stand-up ruined his career.
