Alexander Reiger (Judd Hirsch) - Alex is the lead actor in the comedy, the sympathetic, prudent heart of the show that everyone else turns to. He is a recovering obsessive player, although he suffers a relapse in one of the episodes. During a particularly unforgettable event, the taxi drivers help him take a test to become one of them.
Latin Gravas (Andy Kaufman) - Latka is an alien who often talks in his own language (actually jargon, often with fictional sentences like "ibi da" or "nik nik"), but when he talks English he has a very strong emphasis. Latin was an adaption of Kaufman's "Foreign Man" figure, which he justified in his performance on stages.
Kaufman, who felt he had relinquished creatively complete command of the characters he had made, finally got exhausted from the knob and led the authors to give the Latka a repeated personal disturbance. Latka becomes Alex in one of the episodes, with deep insight into "his" world. When he wants to show the true Alex the flawless answer to all his troubles, he falls back on Latka.

Alex and Joe hadn't talked in 30 years. He had no concerns about his father's infarction because when he was a child, Joe gave Charlotte more attentiveness than Alex.
She' s got a little side slip with Alex, which leads to frictions with Latka. I dated Louie once to annoy Alex. During the first part of the show, Alex learns that Cathy, who was a babe when he and Phyllis were separated, wants to go to Portuguese colleges, and he travels a long way to see her for the first meeting since then.
At a later stage, he participates in Cathy's marriage. After appearing in split eps, George Wendt and Ted Danson starred in the next Jim Burrows, Cheers game.
