Only found out a few years ago he was Ben Stiller's da! He'll always be Frank Costanza to me. RIP

Legendary performance. Especially as he only entered the scene in season 5 of 9.

Was watching an interview with him where he said he was initially told to play Frank as mild and meek to Estelle Harris' lunactic mother character, and after a few days he thought he was going to lose the role because he wasn't making any kind of mark with it in rehearsels. He said he decided to, off the cuff, just yell back at her once they started to film the scene, Larry David loved it, and that was that.
