Cal looks back at the stories he wrote for Esquire in the words of the actor who played George Costanza’s father in Seinfeld. The way Stiller got the role is perfect example of pivoting that applies to us all during the time of the coronavirus. Rather than go with the role in the way it was intended, Stiller completely reinvented it and it’s one of the many reasons we’re still watching replays more than 25 years later. The actor recently passed away at the age of 92, but his work continues to bring us smiles. and the lesson behind his reinvention on Seinfeld can be used by all of us today.
