Uncle Leo Dies At The Age of 88

Len Lesser the actor who played Uncle Leo on the classic show Seinfeld died recently at the age of 88.

Uncle Leo was portrayed as that overly friendly uncle that none of the kids wanted to hang out with. He was always a good guy, but you could only take his presence in small infrequent doses. Yeah that was Uncle Leo for you.

The one thing Uncle Leo taught me when I was watching this as a kid was that you should always look in the trash, you never know what you're gonna get.

So in honor of Uncle Leo, I'll be looking in your trash cans. Don't mind me.

Here's a clip of Jerry trying to convince Uncle Leo to hook back up with an anti-Semite woman.
