Michael Richards played Cosmos Kramer, the quirky and unpredictable next-door neighbor who brought both laughter and frustration to Jerry Seinfeld's life in the TV series Seinfeld, which earned the actor three Primetime Emmy Awards for his brilliant performance in the series. However, unlike most of his fellow cast members who found success in their careers after their time on the sitcom, Richards faced a significant career setback that made him withdraw from the spotlight. Recently, the 74-year-old made a rare appearance alongside his family after almost two decades.
