In "Everybody Loves Raymond," Romano plays Ray Barone, father of three and a sports writer for a local newspaper. Patricia Heaton plays his wife, Debra, who endures her husband's overbearing parents played brilliantly by Doris Roberts and the late Peter Boyle. As in real life, Ray's brother Robert, played by Brad Garrett, is a policeman who lives with his parents. Guest stars for the series run included hilarious appearances by Kevin James, Fred Willard, Georgia Engel and Chris Elliott.
