Ian Abercrombie, R. I. P.

Ian Abercrombie Dead: 'Seinfeld' Actor Dies At 77: After nearly 50 years in the business, "Seinfeld" actor Ian Abercrombie died on Thursday at 77 years old. The TV icon who played Elaine Benes' (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) boss on Jerry Seinfeld's sitcom, passed away in Hollywood. He is survived by three brothers.

Although Abercrombie made a name for himself as Elaine's quirky boss, who cut his candy bars with a knife and fork and was more than a little particular about his socks, his most recent television run was on the Disney channel hit "Wizards of Waverly Place," playing three-thousand-year-old wizard school headmaster, Professor Crumbs.
