Peter Boyle Dies at 71

Posted by Johnny Mercedes Categories: Celeb News, Obituaries,

Peter BoyleThe actor possibly best known for his role as the grotesque, but comical creation in Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein died Tuesday after a long struggle with multiple myloma and heart disease.  Boyle, who more recently played Frank Barone on the long-running sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, had a notable career in both film and television, for which he received much praise and an Emmy in 1996.  No stranger to health problems – he suffered a stroke in 1990 and a heart attack in 1999 – Boyle always bounced back and returned to work, playing his range of grumpy, charming, and comical men.

We’ll sure miss Boyle here at FilmCrunch.  He was always a familiar, friendly face to see on screen and indicated a performance worth watching.  We’ll always remember his amusingly realistic portrayal of the angry and confused, yet sensitive monster in Young Frankenstein, helping make it one of the greatest comedies of all time.
