I am very saddened by the news I heard tonight. Peter Boyle dies, age 71. Peter Boyle was a wonderful actor and an interesting man. I will never stop laughing at his impecable performance as Frank Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond. And one of my fondest memories is the episode of X Files he starred in. When I saw the footage of the news tonight I shed many tears. I have not cried for the death of a celebrity since Jack Lemon (and before that Phil Hartman). Those have been the only three actors who have moved me enough to see them as favorites. Not just favorites of mine, but of the industry as whole. What a loss. What a sad loss.
