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)
