    Thanks. I completely forgot about the film "While You Were Sleeping". I loved his performance in that as well.

    This really saddens me as he was just such a hilarious part of the show. He will be missed.

    What a shame. Such an incredible actor and personality.
    RIP, Mr. Boyle. Thanks for the work.

    maybe I'll do a double feature of YF and Taxi Driver....

    He was in a few episodes of NYPD Blue, and I really appreciated his character in that short time. Of course, Young Frankenstein as well. RIP.

    Ironically, I had just gotten to his 1976 guest host appearance in my SNL Season 1 set last night... :-(

    Godspeed, Peter.

    First time I noticed Peter was in Joe (1970), and it was a harrowing experience. I was 24 and living the life of some of the movies characters. Also I had just moved to upstate New York, where the movies horrible climax occurred.
    I have not seen the film since and Peter was so freaked about being cheered for his portrayal that he refused violent roles from then on.
    But, we'll alway have Young Frankenstein.

    If you're blue and you don't know
    where to go to why don't you go
    where fashion sits
    Puttin' on the Ritz
    Different types who wear a day
    coat pants with stripes and cutaway
    coat perfect fits
    Puttin' on the Ritz
    Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper
    Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
    Come let's mix where Rockefellers
    walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas
    in their mitts
    Puttin' on the Ritz


    I recently saw Young Frankenstein again on the big screen, and watching a film like that with an audience really drives home how brilliantly funny it was. And the Puttin' on The Ritz dance number is one of my favourite movie scenes, full stop. And Peter Boyle was such a big part of it.

    While I was not a fan of Raymond, every now and then I would see a random scene with Peter Boyle, and enjoy his performances with Doris Roberts.

    And there was his X-Files performance (probably the first time I ever saw him) and Taxi Driver. He was just such a talented actor and comedian, and he will be missed.

    Rest in peace.

    Very sad to hear this. Peter Boyle was terrific. From his comedy roles to his dramatic parts, he was an extremely versitile actor. Its unlikely we will see his like again.
