Trivia: In JFK Wayne Knight plays Numa Bertel. In Seinfeld Wayne Knight plays Newman. In JFK he was used in Jim Garrison's demonstration of the single bullet theory. In Seinfeld he and Kramer told Jerry a story exactly the same as the single bullet theory only that it was spit that hit them not a bullet. Jerry then does the same demonstration that Jim Garrison did in JFK to explain the story. The layout is also the same in both the film and Seinfeld.
