Peter Scolari Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 12, 1956
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

C.C.N.Y. graduate Peter Scolari was endowed with an instantly likeable personality and a gift for the fast quip. As such, he was ideally cast on the 1980 TV sitcom Bosom Buddies as Henry Desmond, one of two male "roomies" forced by circumstance to disguise themselves as women (we'll get to Scolari's co-star in a moment). On either side of Bosom Buddies' two-season run, Scolari was featured on the short-lived sitcoms Goodtime Girls (1984) and Baby Makes Five (1983). He enjoyed a longer run in the role of trendy TV producer Michael Harris on Newhart, and was engaging and convincing as a prejudice-busting high school choral director in the Disney TV movie Perfect Harmony (1991). It is one of the inequities of show business that so ingratiating a performer as Peter Scolari was starring in such direct-to-video pond scum as Ticks (1994) and co-starring in such Hall-of-Obscurity theatrical films as Camp Nowhere (1994), while his old Bosom Buddies co-star, Tom Hanks, was collecting all manner of industry awards for such films as Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, among others. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
