"Seinfeld" Actor Ian Abercrombie Dead at 77Submit Comment
Ian Abercrombie, a busy character actor who gained recognition as Elaine's eccentric boss Mr. Pitt on "Seinfeld," died Thursday in Hollywood. He was 77.

The actor had a career spanning 50 years and has appeared in such films as "Army of Darkness," "Young Frankenstein," and "Jurassic Park 2." He also provided voice work on "Star Wars: Clone Wars" and "Green Lantern" animated series, and "Rango."

On television, he was a regular on the WB Network series "Birds of Prey" and also worked on such shows as "Get Smart," "Hunter," "L.A. Law," "Dynasty," "Northern Exposure," "NewsRadio," "Murphy Brown," "Desperate Housewives" and dozens of others.
