Raymond" Star Dead at 71…
This is an article from World Entertainment News.
Emmy Award-winning actor Peter Boyle died at New York Presbyterian Hospital
Tuesday night. He was 71.
Boyle, best known in recent years for playing Frank Barone
in Everybody Loves Raymond, had been suffering from multiple myeloma - a
form of cancer - and heart disease.
Boyle was a versatile and talented actor, excelling in both
comedy and dramatic roles. He famously played it straight as Robert Redford's
campaign manager in the 1972 film 'The Candidate' before switching to a monster
in Mel Brooks' horror spoof 'Young Frankenstein' two years later.
Boyle's TV career earned him 10 nominations - seven for Everyone
Loves Raymond - and one win in 1996, as Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama
Series for a role in The X Files.
He leaves behind his wife of 29 years, Lorraine, a former Rolling Stone magazine
reporter, and two daughters Lucy and Amy.
Former Beatle John Lennon was best man when the pair married
in 1977, after becoming close friends with Boyle.
Peter Boyle Biography
For the bulk of his film career, versatile actor Peter Boyle has specialized in
playing eccentric leads as well as supporting and character roles.
Before becoming an actor in the early '60s, Boyle was a member of the Christian

Up until he appeared in the caper comedy Slither (1973), Boyle had been cast in
largely dramatic roles, but his most famous comedy role was that of the monster
in Mel Brook's sublime parody Young Frankenstein (1974). In this film, he
showed a real knack for broad and subtle comedy; he even managed to imbue his
hulking, zipper-necked creature with genuine pathos. Other memorable roles
include a supporting performance as a philosophical cabbie in Taxi Driver
He continued to work regularly in feature films, many of uneven quality. In
addition, Boyle has frequently worked in television, appearing in miniseries
such as Echoes in the Darkness and made-for-TV films such as The Rise and Fall
of Oliver North. Boyle played Tea Leone's father in the short-lived but
critically acclaimed Fox sitcom Flying Blind (1992-1993).
In 1996, Boyle landed a regular spot on the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.
