Jeff Lester (born May 4, 1955) is an American actor known for his various television appearances.
Lester played the lead role in Once a Hero, as superhero Captain Justice and his alter-ego archologist, Brad Steele. The show was widely promoted and critically acclaimed, but was a ratings failure, and was cancelled after only three episodes were broadcast (seven episodes were developed).
Among his other performances, Lester played Raymond in a Seinfeld episode called "The Note". Lester played a masseuse in the episode who apparently made George Costanza's penis move during a massage he gave him. George becomes frantic that he maybe now gay.
Since the start of the 1990s Lester has worked as an executive producer, writer, and director for several commercials, stage productions, and films. Film work includes the short western The Last Real Cowboys (2000), the thriller Broken (2006), the short drama Mr. President (2007), and the short film Speed of Life (2008).
He has received several awards, including Summit Awards, Addy Awards, and Telly Awards.
