Character Actor Len Lesser, Uncle Leo in Seinfeld, Dies at 88

Len Lesser, who was most recently known for his scene-stealing role as Uncle Leo in Seinfeld has passed away at 88 from cancer-related pneumonia. Before Seinfeld, Lesser had a long resume including Clint Eastwood classics like Outlaw Josey Wales and Kelly's Heroes and television appearances on everything from The Monkees to Everybody Loves Raymond. In remembrance of Lesser, here is 23 seconds of comic genius with Lesser as Uncle Leo, followed by his one of his most memorable scenes in Kelly's Heros. Rest in peace, Mr. Lesser.



  • Lassie says:

    That wasn't the best clip of Uncle Leo, you should have used the Cape Fear Parody! "Hello...Jerry...Hello...Jerry..answer the phone!"
    Or Everybody Loves Raymond: "Ray's here! A-hahahaha!" (raises fists in pure joy, as if, NOW the party can start!"
