Q Was the actor who plays Uncle Leo on the TV series Seinfeld also in the movies The Outlaw Josie Wales and Kelly's Heroes?
—Tony Falo, Lady Lake, Fla.

Yes, indeed. Len Lesser, 84, has been acting for 50 years and has appeared in more than 100 movies and television shows, often cast as an outlaw, hit man or other villain. But his greatest fame came late in his career, as Jerry Seinfeld's eccentric uncle. You also may have seen him in his recurring role as Garvin on TV's Everybody Loves Raymond.
