David Fitzgerald Doyle (December 1, 1929 – February 26, 1997) was an American actor.
Doyle was born in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Mary Ruth (née Fitzgerald) and Lewis Raymond Doyle, an attorney. His maternal grandfather, John Fitzgerald, was a prominent railroad builder and banker in Nebraska. He graduated from Campion High School in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin in 1947.
He is perhaps best remembered for his role as detective John Bosley on the television series Charlie's Angels. He also lent his distinctive raspy voice to the character Grandpa Lou Pickles on the Nickelodeon animated television series Rugrats until his death. Doyle made a number of appearances as a guest on the game show Match Game in the late '70s and early '80s, more often than not giving bizarre answers that seldom matched the contestants. He usually sat in the top row next to Brett Somers and Charles Nelson Reilly. He appeared on one week of Password Plus in 1980, three weeks of Super Password, and appeared on Tattletales with his wife Anne in 1982.
Doyle was married twice, first to Rachel, then Anne Nathan Doyle. Doyle had a sister who was also an actor (mostly on the stage), Mary Doyle, who died from lung
