LOS ANGELES (AP) - Peter Boyle, the tall, prematurely bald actor who was the tap-dancing monster in "Young Frankenstein" and the curmudgeonly father in the long-running sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," has died. He was 71.
Boyle died Tuesday evening at New York Presbyterian Hospital. He had been suffering from multiple myeloma and heart disease, said his publicist, Jennifer Plante. A Christian Brothers monk who turned to acting, Boyle gained notice playing an angry workingman in the Vietnam-era hit "Joe." But he overcome typecasting when he took on the role of the hulking, lab-created monster in Mel Brooks' 1974 send-up of horror films.

The "Puttin' On The Ritz" scene in Young Frankenstein remains one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and his part in Johnny Dangerously was hilarious also.

Great comedic actor... R.I.P. Peter....

Was just watching Raymond last night. The show was always great, but Peter Boyle made it go up a notch. He played that role so well...he'll be missed.

Not a lot of people mention it, but his guest appearance on the X-Files was awesome. The scene from Young Frankenstein when Gene Hackman smashed the wine mug and Boyle rolled his eyes is classic. :sidelol:

It is weird I didn't expect him to die so soon after doing Raymond and he was just in the Santa Clause 3 this is unexpected for everybody except for his family who knew about his condition.
One last time RIP Peter Boyle.:(
