Irving "Sully" Boyar (December 14, 1924 March 23, 2001) was an actor of Russian American descent.

Boyar was one of seven children, some of whom grew up to become lawyers and businessmen. He also worked as a lawyer before turning to acting. He had a twin brother named Samuel.

Boyar was in many films including Fort Apache, The Bronx, In the Soup, The Jazz Singer and Car Wash. He worked with Al Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon (1975), as the bank manager Mulvaney. Sully can be seen in many other movie and television projects. He guest-starred on The Sopranos, in 2001, playing Dr. Krakower, a psychiatrist. He was also a theater actor.

On March 23, 2001 (two weeks before the first airing of the Sopranos episode in which he played his last role), while waiting for a city bus in Queens, New York, Boyar died of a heart attack at age 76.
