Everybody Loves Peter Boyle

I am one of those people who feel like characters in my favorite tv shows are my friends. You share in the ups and downs that they go through, and even though the situations are scripted, they tend to hit close to home sometimes.

Of course this actor was great in Everybody Loves Raymond, but my favorite role he played was in While You Were Sleeping alongside Sandra Bullock and other great actors. That's one of my favorite movies, and he was perfectly cast for it.

Unfortunately, the comedic world has suffered a loss with the death of Peter Boyle. See full story here. And since he was my 'friend' I feel I've suffered a loss as well.

I was going to blog about the same. I am so sad to hear of his passing! He was an incredible actor. We love Everybody Loves Raymond and loved his role as Frank.

He did a great job...I can't really imagine anyone else in that role.

Do you think they will bury him with his pants unfastened?

He was great on Raymond. Also great in Young Frankenstein. We'll miss you, Frank.

Also, I like the new Beta look. Welcome!
