Man the only thing that i can think of him is Dennis Nedry from Jurassic Park. I also saw him in Space Jam and a couple of other movies here and there.

He was also on Seinfeld as Newman, who is Jerry's nemesis.

Happy Birthday Wayne Knight!

He has got to be one of those actors who can play any nasty jerk and make him very entertaining and fun to watch. He was great as Newman on Seinfeld, Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park and Officer Don Orville in 3rd Rock From the Son. Voice wise I really enjoyed him as Al McWhiggin, Emperor Zurg, Tantor, Mr. Blik, Dojo Kanojo Cho, Egghead and Captain Goray.

Wayne's Zurg sound clip in the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command movie, and his Zurg sound clip in the TV series that followed the movie sound kinda different, the clip from the TV series sounds a little more recognizable even though they still added a filter effect to it. Does anyone else notice, or is it just me?

@Jacob M. Keene It may have to do with the production budget, microphone, etc. I actually didn't know Wayne voiced Zurg, I think he did great job for the movie and the show. Sadly the show didn't last very long.

Most people know him as Newman from Seinfield; Personally, I'll always know him as Don Orville from 3rd Rock From The Sun. :)

Also... ... HE WAS MR. BLIK!?!?

Mind = Blown XD
