      Peter Scolari

      Peter Scolari

      Highest Rated: 93% That Thing You Do! (1996)

      Lowest Rated: 17% Camp Nowhere (1994)

      Birthday: Sep 12, 1955

      Birthplace: New Rochelle, New York, USA

      A talented comedic actor who broke through alongside Tom Hanks on the cross-dressing sitcom "Bosom Buddies" (ABC, 1980-82), Peter Scolari went on to enjoy a charismatic, Emmy-nominated run as the ultimate neurotic yuppie Michael Harris on "Newhart" (CBS, 1982-1990). Scolari took many guest appearances and lower-profile roles before resurfacing as Rick Moranis' TV replacement on the adaptation of "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" (syndicated, 1997-2000). Scolari also had small roles in his "That Thing You Do!" (1996), "From the Earth to the Moon" (HBO, 1998) and "The Polar Express" (2004). Peter Scolari was a worthy comic talent who deserved recognition for his own unique gifts.
