Boyle goes bad in ‘Scooby’

Thesp to play villainous museum curator in 'Doo 2'

The next “Scooby Doo” has found its bad guy: “Everybody Loves Raymond” star Peter Boyle.

Thesp is set to play the role of Old Man Wickles in Warner Bros.’ tentatively titled “Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.” Lensing has begun on the sequel in Vancouver, with Raja Gosnell helming.

The Wickles character is one of the better-known villains of the “Scooby” TV franchise, having appeared in the first episode of the show.

In the episode, Wickles was a museum curator who posed as the mysterious Black Knight in order to avoid being revealed as an art thief. He would have gotten away with his scheme — if it weren’t for those meddling kids in the Scooby gang.

It’s unclear how closely the new “Scooby” pic will echo the episode that featured Wickles.

In addition to playing Ray Romano’s TV dad, Boyle has appeared in features including “Monster’s Ball.” Innovative Artists-repped thesp also was in the Off Broadway production of “The Exonerated.”

“Scooby” stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini, Seth Green and Alicia Silverstone.
