Working on Kramer
Michael's portrayal of Kramer always seemed so natural that his comedic genius may not be so apparent. But the role actually required quite a bit of preparation in a short period of time.
Michael: There were so many ways to go [with each scene], and so we didn't really have a lot of time to do a TV show. We had three days of rehearsal, so I just spent as much time as I could to get at the material.
Jerry: He'd find all these little things, you know? I remember watching him working on something. I'd go, "What are you doing?" "Oh, I'm working on a little thing here." I would go, "I don't know, I'd just read it." And now when I watch it and I see all that work he put into it, that it all really made a difference.
