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. Leeds 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 Monkees, The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Friends, Mad About You, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Wings (NBC TV series) and The Golden Girls. At age 80, he appeared on an episode of Roseanne 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 also memorably appeared as a fellow ghost in the 1990 film Ghost. Leeds died of pneumonia on August 16, 1998, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at age 82.
