* NiceGuy: [[http://www.newsfromme.com/2013/05/01/the-power-of-fame This story]] as told by Creator/MarkEvanier describes Jason visiting an amateur musical and going out of his way to personally compliment everyone in the cast -- making sure to do it while their friends and family were around.

* TheCastShowoff: Inverted. If you'd only watched ''Seinfeld'', You'd never guess he was a trained singer from George's flat, monotone vocals. He would later play it straight when he guest-starred in the MusicalEpisode of ''Series/{{Community}}''.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Compared to [[{{Jerkass}} George]] [[ButtMonkey Costanza]], the man is quite considerate. They really couldn't be more different except in similar appearance.



* StarMakingRole: Again, while he was more than a respectable actor beforehand, ''Seinfeld'' offered him his greatest exposure. He's grateful for it too, because he's remarked that, otherwise, "he'd be remembered as that guy [[Film/PrettyWoman who tried to rape]] Creator/JuliaRoberts".

In actuality, the man is an accomplished performer on the stage, having won a Tony Award for his singing contributions. However, it would be his role as George Costanza, Jerkass and [[HeterosexualLifePartners best]] [[NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat friend]] to main character Jerry Seinfeld that would make Alexander a true household name. Being named "the greatest sitcom character of all time" by none other than Creator/RickyGervais, Alexander's accolades for the role included Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, as well as a win at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. One could say that, along with Michael Richards as Kramer, he became a BreakoutCharacter on the show.
