Peter Boyle dead at 71
Puttin' on the Riiiiiiitttttzzzzz. He will be missed.
I created a digital sample of this clip a long time ago. One of the funniest moments in movie history.
I always thought one of his best roles was as Sheppard, the corrupt administrator of the Con-Am 27 mining facility on Io in Outland. There was just something about him in that movie that creeped me out.
Although the movie wasn't that great I thought he was superb as Hunter S. Thompson's attorney "Lazlo" in Where the Buffalo Roam. So many good roles - he could play funny, creepy, radical, conservative, etc., etc., etc.
He was also memorable in a totally obscure comedy from the early '70s called Slither. Does anybody else remember this film? Very funny stuff. Probably about six people saw it.
I recently saw an interview with him and I suspected he wasn't well. He was a classic comedian, comedy now day is so rehearsed.
Sed-a-give?! That was a great movie.
He also starred as a right-wing superpatriot in a movie called "Joe". As much as Boyle was known for "Young Frankenstein", it was "Joe" that really made the critics sit up and take notice.
"Joe" is never shown on TV and you can't find it in video stores, but I'd love to see it. From the descriptions, it sounds frightening and, frankly, still pretty relevant.
He was smart and funny, the kind of actor who doesn't show up on t.v. or the big screen too often here.
I didn't realize he was the created in Young Frankenstein. I knew there was something familiar about him!
I guess I always thought of him as Jocko Dundee from Johnny Dangerously.
That latest picture (article) shows just how far down his health had gone. He will be missed. I'm going to post a more robust Boyle. Or, as Frank would have said it, "hope you Nancys don't have a problem with 'dat."
A little triva for you. Who was Peter Boyle's Best Man at his wedding? Answer... John Lennon. Boyle's wife worked at Rolling Stone and the couple grew to be close friends with John & Yoko.
Puttin' on the Riiiiitttttzzzz
Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose...
The single best episode of The X-Files in my opinion. Boyle played the "reluctant psychic" insurance salesman who could see into the future -- but only to see how people died. Ironically, even himself.
I was shocked to hear of his death. Didn't know he wasn't in the best of health. I will definitely miss him.
R.I.P. Peter (Frank)
I really enjoyed his work in NYPD Blue.
I never really noticed him as such a varied actor until seeing him on 'Raymond'. After that I noticed him popping up in all sorts of movies/tv shows.
He was a very talented actor, and I feel for his family at this time. Always hard to have news like this around Christmas.
He seemed like he lost a step during the final years of Everybody Loves Raymond. It almost seemed like he was slow and old, or maybe he had a stroke or something. At that point, I thought he was in poor health.
Peter Boyle will be missed.
I'm super bummed.
He didn't seem to be doing to well on Mind of Mencia. Moving kinda slow, talking funny. They just showed a rerun of it, so I guess it was filmed awhile ago. I was just thinking about that, and though I didn't watch Raymond that much, he seemed perfect for that role.
Young Frankenstein was one of my favorites as a kid, sad to see so many of those who were in that now not doing so good or have passed on already.
Truly a great entertainer. He will be missed.
Good Actor we lost.....RIP
It's on DVD - found it on Amazon: Joe DVD
