"Good-Bye" Uncle Leo

Posted Feb. 17, 2011 by Linda Ghent

I am sad to say that actor Len Lesser who played Jerry's uncle Leo has died at the age of 88. His "Hello!" was his trademark greeting, but I will always remember him as the uncle who tried to save a buck, whether it was fishing a watch out of the garbage or not paying his sister (Jerry's mom) back for a loan made years ago. Lesser did a great job in this role, but he came to Seinfeld with a lot of television credits on his resume, including "Dragnet" and "Gunsmoke." RIP Uncle Leo!
