He was born on October 18, 1935, in Norristown, Pennsylvania, to Alice (Lewis) and Francis Xavier Boyle. He eventually moved to Philadelphia, where his father was a sought-after local TV personality and children's show host.

Téa Leoni, Peter Boyle, and Corey Parker in Küss mich, Kleiner! (1992)

Got lost while trying to reach his audition for Everybody Loves Raymond (1996) with his wife frequently asking him if he knew where he was going. The frustration of not knowing caused him to become irritated and snappy when he finally arrived and, as a result, was cast as the gruff and grouchy Frank Barone.
