True, Nathan doesn't have to be played by a Jewish actor. However, Matthau was Jewish, as were so many actors who played Nathan.

Also, "So, nu?" isn't the only (funny) example of Jewish syntax in G&D. One of Nathan's great lines when challenged by Big Jule and has to pick up a nickel is, "For this, I have to bend over!"

Stay safe and well. x
