  Summary  

Phil Leeds (April 6, 1916 – August 16, 1998) was a Jewish-American Hollywood character actor. Leeds' bulging eyes, rubbery face and wizened features made him a distinctive presence.

  Biography  

He was born on April 6, 1916, in New York City, the son of a post office clerk. He started his career as a standup comedian and then went on to appear in several films and sitcoms, including Rosemary's Baby, Three's Company, Night Court, Wings, Ally McBeal, Everybody Loves Raymond, and The Larry Sanders Show, as well as making guest appearances in The Patty Duke Show, The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Friends, Mad About You, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and The Golden Girls. At age 80, he appeared on an episode of Roseanne (Season 9, Episode 7 – Aired: 29 October 1996) in which Roseanne finds herself drawn into a creepy '90s version of "Rosemary's Baby." Leeds played the role of "Dr. Shand" in the original 1968 film.

Leeds died of pneumonia on August 16, 1998, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 82 years old. The November 9, 1998, episode of Ally McBeal, "Happy Trails," featured footage of his prior appearances on the show, eulogizing his character. He also had a cameo role in the film Ghost.
