Just recently I discovered some interesting facts about George Costanza that I never knew before. You may or may not have known these facts yourself but in any case they are interesting.

This one is the one that most surprised me. Did you know that Jason Alexander was not the first choice to play the role of George? The role was first offered Danny DeVito, Paul Shaffer and Chris Rock of all people who ultimately turned down the role. Can you picture anyone playing that role other than Jason Alexander?
