Peter Boyle Dead at 71

Actor Peter Boyle, 71, has died in New York City after a battle with heart disease and multiple myeloma.

Though he was best known in recent years for his role as Frank Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, Boyle had a long and distinguished career as an actor and often portrayed counterculture characters.

Before there was Frank Barone, there was Peter Boyle—advising Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, tap dancing in Young Frankenstein and marrying with best man John Lennon at his side.
Boyle, whose early film career as a counterculture figure receded into obscurity during his nine-season run as the "Holy crap"-spouting Barone patriarch on the prime-time hit Everybody Loves Raymond, died Tuesday night in a New York City hospital. He was 71."
