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

Richard Herd is also big in the science fiction world. He had roles in "V," "V: The Final Battle," "Star Trek: Voyager" and "seaQuest DSV." He has also done a ton of guest appearances on other TV shows, like "M*A*S*H," "Golden Girls," "Starsky and Hutch," "NYPD Blue" and "JAG." 

Currently, Herd is spending a lot of his time focusing on his painting.
