Jerry Seinfeld has lost his favorite, loudest uncle. Len Lesser, the actor best known for yelling his way into our hearts as Uncle Leo on “Seinfeld,” has passed away.

A veteran of over 500 non-Uncle Leo stage, film, and television roles, Lesser drew acclaim in recent years for his work with the Los Angeles classical repertory company A Noise Within. He was credited with nearly stealing the production of Awake and Sing! this past spring.

The actor died yesterday from pneumonia related to cancer. However, investigators aren’t ruling out involvement from Fake Kim Kardashian in this case. (THR)

Kim Kardashian Harasses ‘Seinfeld’s’ Uncle Leo Via Facebook http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/kim-kardashian-harasses-seinfelds-uncle-leo-via-facebook/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/kim-kardashian-harasses-seinfelds-uncle-leo-via-facebook/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Len Lesser (Left) | Kim Kardashian (Right) Just when you thought Kim Kardashian couldn't sink any lower, she goes on Facebook and harasses an 87-year-old man. And not just any 87-year old. We're talking about Len Lesser, the guy who played Uncle Leo on "Seinfeld!" Len Lesser called Burbank police last night after receiving a slew of calls from people who kept asking, "Are you Uncle Leo?"  The 87-year-old couldn't take it anymore so cops came to his house. While at Lesser's home, an officer intercepted one of the calls and asked where the caller had found the number. As it turns out, someone posing as Kim Kardashian on Facebook posted the information, not the reality/porn star herself. However, I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to throw Kardashain in jail until the whole thing gets sorted out, just in case. In the meantime, Lesser should start answering his phone with "Vandelay Industries" in order to throw the callers off his trail. (TMZ)
