Claim to fame: Scolari is probably best known as one half of the dynamic comedy duo that starred in the cult favorite sitcom Bosom Buddies in the early 80s. The other half, of course, being Tom Hanks. After the untimely cancellation of that show, while Hanks went on to become a movie star, Scolari held his own with comedic heavyweight Bob Newhartin Newhart, scoring Emmy nominations for his role as Michael Harris three years in a row. After Newhart pulled the covers up over that show Scolari disappeared from the scene for a while.
