Such a great talent that was, in my eyes, the glue of "Raymond" ... may he rest peacefully.

Never watched "Raymond", but he was great in that 1 episode of "The X-Files" ("Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" I think was the episode name).

Raymond was a good show. Young Frankenstein was great. He will be missed.

To me, he'll always be Wizard from "Taxi Driver". But in everything he did, it was just a treat to watch him work.

His bits in "Young Frakenstein" were priceless, especially with the old blind man and when he and Gene Wilder did Puttin' on th Ritz. RIP

I just watched Young Frankenstein for the first time in a very long time last night.

I never watched Raymond, but he had been on a couple episodes of Mind of Mencia recently as well.

RIP

My favorite role of his was when he played Ox in WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING. He was awesome there.

Rest in peace, Peter.

This is a bummer. I loved him in "Young Frankenstein", and was fantastic in "Yellowbeard" (Mr. Moon) as well. He was a fine actor and a funny man. He will be missed.

"Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" was my favorite comedy episode of "The x-Files." Boyle's morbidly depressed delivery and moments of feigned enthusiasm were great. The capper was his vision of himself lying in bed with Scully with tears of gratitude running down his cheeks, which she thought was a missed prediction when he made it. The payoff made for a great finale!

I just saw it, and have to say that the best part of the movie, to me, was that I had no idea what to expect from scene to scene. There were so many twists and turns, but it wasn't overdone, and it worked.
