Primetime TV Book Reviews
the Watch?! and Other Tales: A Memoir from Seinfeld's Uncle Leo"
by Len Lesser and Tama Ryder
This was a very interesting book to read, and not just
because I loved "Seinfeld". Len Lesser was a great character actor who
was around for a long time and was in many TV shows and movies over the
years, so he has some great stories to tell, which he shares in this
For instance, he tells some very nice and funny stories about Steve
McQueen, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, and others, as well as
sharing some tidbits about people he did not care for, and some of the
pitfalls of Hollywood.
I just wish that he had said a little more about Seinfeld and his time
working on the show. Also, it's a real shame that he died just before
the book came out.
The book is a fun read. His style is very straight-forward and
personable. You will breeze through it in no time.
The iconic SEINFELD character, Uncle Leo, has written a memoir. Len
Lesserīs memoir, WHEREīS THE WATCH (Staff
Picks Press, November 2011) will introduce you to the actor who
fame as "Uncle Leo" in SEINFELD and open you up to the world behind
televisionīs most famous series. A quintessential ladies man, Len was
World War II veteran, a factory worker and a dishwasher who
became an iconic television celebrity. His career spanned more than
decades during which time he appeared in hundreds of critically
stage performances, films, and television shows. He worked with
Hoffman, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Barbra Streisand, Mel Brooks,
Frank Sinatra to name a few.
Len Lesser passed away last February, only a few weeks after
his memoir. His close friends, Ed Asner, Jerry Stiller, James
many other close Hollywood friends are helping to promote Lenīs work.
