Charleston Lewis "Chuck" Low (born December 1, 1937, New York City, New York) is an American character actor.

Born to a Polish mother and German-Jewish father, Low achieved his biggest success as Maurice "Morrie" Kessler in the Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas (1990). The character of Morrie is famous for his "Morrie's Wig Shop" commercial which is seen as comical, and that coupled with his penchant for pestering Jimmy Conway about money leads most of the characters to see him as a nuisance. Kessler's character is based on Martin Krugman.

He has had small roles in other Robert De Niro films, such as The Mission, The King of Comedy, and most notably in Sergio Leone's 1984 film Once Upon a Time in America as Deborah and Fat Moe's father. He also guest starred in a first-season episode of The Sopranos, as Shlomo Teittleman. He can also be seen in Alan Taylor's 2006 film, Kill the Poor.

Low once served as Robert De Niro's real estate agent. Low is 5' 10" tall and has been credited as Charles Low, Chuck L. Low, Chuck Lewis Low.
