Peter Scolari, Newhart and Bosom Buddies actor, dies of cancer at 66
Peter Scolari died Friday morning in New York after fighting cancer for two years,

Peter Scolari, a versatile character actor whose television roles included a yuppie producer on Newhart and a closeted dad on Girls and who was on Broadway with longtime friend Tom Hanks in Lucky Guy, has died. He was 66.

Scolari died Friday morning in New York after fighting cancer for two years, according to Ellen Lubin Sanitsky, his manager.

He first gained attention as the then-unknown Hanks’ co-star in the 1980-82 sitcom “Bosom Buddies,” in which their characters disguised themselves as women to live in affordable, females-only housing.

The two actors went on to work together in projects including Hanks’ 1996 movie directorial debut That Thing You Do! and in 2013s Lucky Guy, Nora Ephron’s play about newspaper columnist Mike McAlary.

Scolari also performed on Broadway in Wicked. Hairspray and 2014s Bronx Bombers, in which he played baseball’s Yogi Berra.

“We were friends and colleagues for over 40 years,” Bob Newhart said in a statement to The Associated Press. He said the contributions of on-screen couple Scolari and Julia Duffy in Newhart were an “essential part” of the show’s success.

“In life, he was a fantastic person, and it was a joy to work together. He will be sorely missed and his passing at 66 is much too early,” said Newhart, who is 92.

Scolari’s recent roles included Bishop Thomas Marx on the supernatural series Evil. Series co-creator Robert King remembered him Tuesday as “just wonderful.”
