Len Lesser, 88, a veteran character actor best known for his recurring role in the 1990s as Uncle Leo on the hit NBC-TV comedy "Seinfeld," died Wednesday in Burbank, publicist Laura Stegman said. He had pneumonia and cancer.

He moved to Los Angeles in 1954 and began working in television and commercials. Movie roles followed, including small parts in "Kelly's Heroes," "Papillon" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales."

Besides "Seinfeld," he also had a recurring role in the CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond" as Raymond's father's friend Garvin.
