The actor was well known for his role as Uncle Leo from the hit series Seinfeld. Both Seinfeld and Jason Alexander, who played George Costanza on the show, expressed their condolences using their Twitter accounts this morning saying.

"Len was a tremendous guy. He was a smart actor/comedian who knew exactly what he was doing in the creation of Uncle Leo. I enjoyed many wonderful conversations with Len who was so openly grateful to be part of our show and so humble about his stunning contribution to it. I am so happy to have known him and my sympathies go to his family. But his was a fun life and he leaves many fans behind and many who will be enjoying his work for years to come."

Good night Uncle Leo.
