    R.I.P. actor Peter Scolari.

    Peter Scolari, 'Bosom Buddies' and 'Newhart' star, has died
    By Marianne Garvey
    Updated 3:27 PM ET, Fri October 22, 2021


    (CNN) — Peter Scolari, a veteran actor who rose to fame alongside Tom Hanks on "Bosom Buddies," died Friday morning.
    Scolari had cancer and had been ill for two years, his manager Ellen Lubin Sanitsky told CNN. He was 66.
    Scolari appeared in numerous films and television series over the years, including "Newhart," "Murphy Brown," and "The Good Fight." He won an Emmy in 2016 for his portrayal of Hannah's father Tad Horvath on "Girls."
    "Bosom Buddies" was on the air for two seasons at ABC. On the show, Scolari and Hanks dressed as women in order to move into an affordable women-only residence. The two actors remained good friends in real life, with Scolari saying in an interview for Oprah Winfrey that Hanks toasted him at his wedding.
    "I cannot get my mind around what I've done in my life to deserve this kind of affection," Scolari said of his toast.
    He also appeared in a TV adaptation of "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," "Gotham," and played Peter Madoff in HBO's "Madoff."
    On stage, Scolari starred in Broadway productions of "Hairspray," "Sly Fox," "Wicked," "Magic/Bird" and "Lucky Guy," alongside Hanks.
    He is survived by his wife, Tracy Shayne, and children Nicholas, Joseph, Keaton, and Cali.

    Aw, sad news, I liked Peter Scolari. He was funny. He was only 66. Too young.

    He was my favorite on Bosom Buddies (actually Donna Dixon was, but for different reasons ) Tom Hanks kind of annoyed me at first, but I grew to like him later on. That the latter became one of the top-ten greatest movie stars of all time (not to mention one of my own personal favorites) still puzzles me some times.

    At any rate, Scolari was always good and likable. Not bad of a career, I must say.

    RIP

    I really liked that show Bosom Buddies but lost track of Peter Scolari's career after than, unlike that other guy R.I.P.

    One thing about that medal; you're pretty much guaranteed that if you are awarded it you are a grade A badass.

    James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther in Friends, has died aged 59

    James Michael Tyler, most famous for playing Gunther, the manager of Central Perk in the hit sitcom Friends, has died aged 59.

    In an interview with NBC in June 2021, Tyler announced that he had stage 4 prostate cancer, which was diagnosed in 2018.

    “The world knew him as Gunther … but Michael’s loved ones knew him as an actor, musician, cancer-awareness advocate, and loving husband,” his family said in a statement.

    “Michael loved live music, cheering on his Clemson Tigers, and would often find himself in fun and unplanned adventures. If you met him once you made a friend for life.”

    In May, he had appeared on Friends: The Reunion but was unable to attend in person due to his health issues. Appearing instead via Zoom, Tyler said: “It was the most memorable 10 years of my life, honestly.

    No thinking about it. She was unquestionably hot. Between her, Lynda Carter (the queen of them all), Lindsay Wagner, and Diedre Hall, the mid-'70s for a developing adolescent was pretty great.

    I was only four or five years old when I watched ISIS on TV and even at that young age, I felt...something.

    I can recall liking Marilyn Munster (Pat Priest) at that same age, so it is possible.
