35. Jackie Chiles

Best-known episode: "The Caddy"
Lawyer Jackie Chiles is a parody of Johnnie Cochran (famous for defending O.J. Simpson) who takes on a demented life of his own, representing Kramer when he sues tobacco companies or burns himself with coffee. ("Outrageous, egregious, preposterous!") When Chiles appeared in the finale (unsuccessfully defending the gang at an epic trial, but getting to sleep with Sidra), his scenes took a long time to shoot: actor Phil Morris so amused the cast that they kept breaking into laughter. GAVIN EDWARDS
