'Seinfeld' revisited: Phil Morris reflects on playing Jackie Chiles (Kramer's lawyer)


'Seinfeld' revisited: Phil Morris reflects on playing Jackie Chiles (Kramer's lawyer)

WATCH | Phil Morris looks back at his time on Seinfeld

Acting in one of the most popular shows in television history leaves a mark on one's career. For the cast of "Seinfeld," their roles in the show were career-defining. If you saw Jason Alexander walking down the street, would you first think of him as Jason, or would you think of him as George Costanza? We all know that Julia Louis-Dreyfus ended up starring on the hit HBO show "Veep."

But what are the minor characters from "Seinfeld" up to these days, and how did their involvement in the show shape their career?

Jackie Chiles, Kramer's bombastic lawyer, is based on Johnnie Cochran (who was most famous for defending O.J. Simpson). Phil Morris actually knew Cochran since when Phil was a child -- their fathers went to the same barbershop in Los Angeles. 

Morris mostly does voice work in superhero movies now. Earlier in his career, he also acted in "The Young and the Restless," "Smallville," "Star Trek," "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and other television shows.
