Such a magnificent actor. Last seen in The Town and Inception but an impressive body of work. He became much more prominent in Hollywood films after his Academy Award nod for In The Name of the Father, which is a must-see if you've never.
And he was only 64! He must have been a hard drinking, hard living man considering his most recent roles have had him playing much older than 64. I'll miss him and that delight of seeing him unexpectedly appear in movies.
For me, Pete was Kobayashi, the lawyer for Keyser Soze in The Usual Suspects. I loved him in that role.

Best guess: Boyd worked for a Blackwater-style private security firm overseas and ended up having to help cover up a massacre of innocent civilians similar to what happened with that company in Iraq, and it's weighing on him quite a bit. Nope.
