Len Lesser, “Uncle Leo” from Seinfeld, Dies at 88

Len Lesser, the actor who played Uncle Leo on Seinfeld, died yesterday in Burbank, California from cancer-related pneumonia. Lesser’s daughter Michelle:

“Heaven got a great comedian and actor today.

The outpouring of sympathy we’ve already received has been amazing and is so greatly appreciated. Thank you to all the people who helped make my father’s last journey special and surrounded with love.”

Though he’ll most likely be remembered for his gig on Seinfeld, Lesser’s IMDB page displays a long, impressive career, including spots on Get Smart, The MunstersBonanza, All in the Family, and even shows as recent as ‘Til Death and Castle.

Hopefully Len Lesser is finding wallets and watches in that great big trashcan in the sky.
