Uncle Rico & Seinfeld

Post by snoscythe » Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:15 pm

Anyone ever notice that Uncle Rico from Napolean Dynamite is also Rusty the Rickshaw Driver/Thief from Seinfeld?

I just noticed tonight when I was watching Seinfeld reruns.

Good eye. Good find. I've alway wondered if he ever got any work doing anything else. I thought he was hilarious in Napoleon Dynamite.

I gotta give credit to Sno and Schmoe - excellent info. Funny stuff.

Yeah, he's been working pretty much non-stop as an actor since '76.

I just found it interesting that he, as a bit actor, has played two fairly significant roles in pop culture.
