Is Tim Whatley the most obscure JONJ profile ever? It's gotta by close with Artie Ziff, right? So how is it we end up profiling the dentist from a few random episodes of Seinfeld (this one in particular being an all time great episode, we grant you), while such deserving fellows as Gene Wilder sit on the sidelines?
In the end, it's because there needs to something interesting to write. If we can't think of anything, then we're kinda stuck. I was watching the Whatley episode and I had an idea for a profile. Meanwhile there's nothing to say about Wilder except "he's great, he's Jewish, yadda yadda yadda."
So there ya go.
Whatley was suggested by my own brain. Thanks brain!
