Peter aspired to be a professional baseball player, but an elbow injury stopped those plans. Peter got his debut television role when he became a part of the sitcom “Goodtime Girls” as the juggling neighbor, which was short lived, but would then co-star in the sitcom “Bosom Buddies” alongside Tom Hanks who was relatively unknown at the time. The show was about two characters who disguised themselves as women to get an affordable apartment. After the end of “Bosom Buddies” in 1982, Peter went on to become a part of “Newhart” in which he played the local TV producer Michael Harris, which proved to be successful and helped elevate his net worth to a high amount. The show finished in 1990, and Peter was then cast in “Family Album”, but that was unsuccessful, and he moved to the television adaptation of “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”, staying there for three seasons. Other shows he was a part of include “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch”, “Family Ties”, and “ER”. One of his latest shows is a recurring role in “Girls” which won him an Emmy award, and all supported his net worth.

Aside from his television work, Scolari is a well-known stage actor, mostly performing in various Broadway productions, including “Hairspray”, “Wicked”, “Lucky Guy” – reunited with Tom Hanks – and “Sly Fox”. His numerous projects continued to build up his net worth. Other productions he has been a part of include the off-Broadway plays “The Exonerated” and “White Lies”. In 2014, he starred in “Bronx Bombers” as Yogi Berra; his wife was also part of the production. One of Peter’s latest projects is “Wicked” in which he plays The Wizard.

Peter has also been a part of several films, notably lending his voice in the animated film “The Polar Express”.

For his personal life, Peter was married to Lisa Kretzschmar. (1981–1983), and then to Debra Steagal (1986-96). He later married Cathy Trien(1998-2004) and they would have two children. After the marriage ended, he dated Tracy Shayne for several years before they married in 2013. Scolari was in an episode of “Oprah; Where Are They Now?”, in which he talked about his bipolar disorder and substance abuse problems.

Looks like we don't have Peter Scolari salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 After guest-starring in 2 episodes of Newhart (1982), in 1984, Scolari was brought in to replace Steven Kampmann, the following year.
2 Credits Bob Newhart as his favorite acting mentor/best friend.
3 Frequently plays golf with his good buddy Bob Newhart.
4 Was originally not on the Emmy nominations list for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2016 (a category, which he ultimately won). He only became a nominee, when original nominee Peter MacNicol was disqualified, because he appeared in too many episodes of Veep (2012)'s fifth season and could no longer be categorized as "guest performer". Scolari, who won the next-highest number of votes without actually being nominated, was then moved up to be one of the six nominees.
5 He is of Italian descent.
6 Currently starring in the new off-Broadway comedy by Kenny Solms, "It Must Be Him". [September 2010]
7 Starring in Boeing, Boeing Playing Sept 20th - Nov 23rd, 2008 at Stage West Mississauga, Ontario. [October 2008]
8 Best known by the public for his role as Michael Harris on Newhart (1982) and for his starring role as Wayne Szalinski on Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show (1997).
9 His acting mentor was Bob Newhart.
10 Good friends with his Bosom Buddies (1980) co-star Tom Hanks and his Newhart (1982) co-star Julia Duffy.
11 Met future wife Cathy Trien in Boston, 1996, while performing in a production of "Grease".
12 Dreamed of being a professional baseball player but an elbow injury ended that dream.
13 Discovered acting at the age of 16 while performing in a high school production of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
14 Peter is an accomplished juggler and is skilled in circus arts.

#Quote
1 [As to how many Emmies both he and Bob Newhart had lost on Newhart (1982), before the two had finally won, decades later]: I don't know the exact #, but I think we lost, 20 Emmies over the years and Bob won, in this category [Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series], a couple years ago and you probably know, he told me earlier tonight, 'You can win one; if you're up to it.' He said, 'I've got one at home.' It was great to be in this category. It was some calming effect because somebody at it had been so meaningful in my life, such a mentor to me. If he were to win another one, tonight, I would've been fine with that.
2 [When asked if there was any dirt about Bob Newhart, who played Dick Loudin]: No, there was no dirt on Bob Newhart, let's be very clear on that point. There's no dirt, he said, 'What?,' he said, 'What he did, what?' No, but there some things.
3 [Of Bob Newhart]: Bob, this is a male story. It's like that male bonding kind of story, we play golf together, many, too many times, a terrible, terrible game. And he went to hit the three went off the muddy fairway, and beautiful golfer, beautiful swing, just electrifying thing in this rainstorm, and looked out for it, and didn't see him, he didn't see it anywhere because he had driven the ball directly into the button, hadn't left his. It's the point of disembarkation.
4 [Of Bob Newhart, who played Dick Loudin]: He mastered the craft of secrecy on the last episode of Newhart, where he hid Suzanne Pleshette from even the production staff.
5 [About Bob Newhart wanting him for a co-starring role Newhart (1982)]: So, Barry Kemp [I think] introduces me, and we have an actor who's in 'Bosom Buddies,' and Bob leans in, so that everyone can hear in a mock whisper, stage whisper, and he says, 'I told you to get the other guy!'
6 Unquestionably. I know no actors of my generation who haven't experienced it. We're coming up against our own resident pride and the frailty of ego. And sure, maybe that has something to do with why Kenny Solms and our director, Dan Kutner, sought me out to do this role. I think to some extent they just wanted me to bring life to the role, if not my life experience, but I have both. About a year after Bosom Buddies, I was suddenly a regular on Newhart, and I was there almost seven years. And then, somewhere in the mid-1990s, I ended up doing a TV series version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. I thought at that time: 'Wow, what's going on here, this isn't a prime-time series, I'm not going to get Emmy-nominated for a show that airs at 5 in the afternoon.' It's all the hobgoblin of your mind telling you that you should have more, or that you'll never have what you had before. If I've gotten nowhere else, at least I've gotten over that hump of believing in my own hype. Now I believe in the importance of where it is that I'm sitting in my career.
7 [About "It Must Be Him" is more on the absurd side]: He's visited by his dead parents and occasionally breaks into song.
8 [Who worked with other comedy mates all the while received training]: People I work with there saw a comedian in me. I'm still most at home with them.
9 If Tom Hanks were willing to do it with me. I mean, I couldn't do it with anybody else!
