(AP Photo/Wally Fong, File)LOS ANGELES Ken Osmond, who on TVs Leave It to Beaver, played two-faced teenage scoundrel Eddie Haskell, a role so memorable it left him typecast and led to a second career as a police officer, died Monday. Osmond died in Los Angeles at age 76, his family said. Osmond returned to making guest appearances on TV shows including The Munsters in the late 1960s, but found he was so identified with Eddie Haskell that it was hard to land roles. He would soon give up acting and become a Los Angeles police officer for more than a decade.
