RIP Peter Boyle

Well after not getting much action on Jack Palance I almost didn't post this. However you guys must have seen " Young Frankenstein " or " Everybody Loves Raymond ".

Peter Boyle was one of my favorite actors. He did some really great stuff over the years.

From a really weird movie of the times called " Joe " to a really exceptional episode of the " Xfiles ". I will miss his talent greatly!



AICN has a nice article on him.

There's also this from CNN with a picture to jog your memory.

    His Young Frankenstein role won me as a fan for life, I never really cared much for him until then.

    Check out Outland, Joe or The Swashbuckler. The last one I rented on a whim (I was into pirate movies for a while ) and it is a genuinely good pirate movie. But Boyle is hilarious as the villain Durant. Tried in vain to find the Boyle/Belushi Dueling Brandos sketch...ah well. Good night Wizard.

    That's sad. I always enjoyed his acting and shows.

    "Holy crap."



    I was really upset; his character Frank was the best on Raymond.

    For being considered one of the nicest men in the business he sure could play a mean old fart, couldn't he?
