Where's the Watch?! and Other Tales: A Memoir from Seinfeld's Uncle Leo cover"Where's 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 book.

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.

More information:

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 achieved fame as "Uncle Leo" in SEINFELD and open you up to the world behind one of televisionīs most famous series. A quintessential ladies man, Len was a World War II veteran, a factory worker and a dishwasher who eventually became an iconic television celebrity. His career spanned more than six decades during which time he appeared in hundreds of critically acclaimed stage performances, films, and television shows. He worked with Dustin Hoffman, Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Barbra Streisand, Mel Brooks, and Frank Sinatra to name a few.

Len Lesser passed away last February, only a few weeks after completing his memoir. His close friends, Ed Asner, Jerry Stiller, James Cromwell and many other close Hollywood friends are helping to promote Lenīs work.
