Boris Leskin dead: Men In Black actor who played alien-controlled cook in 1997 hit movie dies at 97

MEN In Black actor Boris Leskin has died at the age of 97, reports in Russia said on Friday night.

No cause of death was immediately given for the Romanian-born actor – who made his name in Soviet-era flicks in Communist Russia, reported.

He played the role of a cook in the 1997 box office smash starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.

Leskin also had a role in the 1989 Jene Hackman movie The Package as a Soviet Foreign Minister – and played parts in the TV series New York Undercover and Dellaventura.

Daria Jurrasic, a member of the Moscow Art Theater, hailed Leskin for his “amazing” and “incredible” life.

“Farewell. Thank you,” Jurassic wrote.
