Charles Levin was an American actor.

He was best known for the role of Elliot Novak on Alice, having become a regular in the show's ninth season, and the recurring role of Eddie Gregg on Hill Street Blues from 1982 to 1986.

One of Levin’s most memorable single-episode television roles was that of the stressed-out mohel on "The Bris" episode of Seinfeld.
