Apparently it was Richard Herd who played Mr. Wilhelm on Seinfeld, not Karl Malden. They are practically twins, it would seem. But not in real life.

Re: Oscar-winning actor Karl Malden dies 97

** Karl Malden was married to the same woman for 70 years. Loved him on all B&W movies. Loved him on AmEx commercials. I used to think Karl Malden was on Seinfeld Episodes. (Thank you, visitor, for correcting me) I enjoyed him at Dead Ringer (with Bette Davis) and many other Black and White movies. He's always a good guy. Then I saw him at Seinfeld episodes. He was pretty funny. It was like a breath of fresh air. I was thinking "Wow, he must be like 80 years old" I am happy for Karl Malden. He had a long life. He gave us a lot of good memories. I miss him, but I cannot complaint. All good. God bless Karl Malden. 97... I wish I can live to 77
