Emmy-winning American TV actor Peter Scolari died Friday at the age of 66, after a two-year battle with cancer.
Over the course of his artistic career, Scolari participated in many films and television series, most notably his participation in the American actor, Tom Hanks, starring in the series Bosom Buddies.
Bosom Buddies aired for two seasons, featuring Peter Scolari and Tom Hanks as two friends who decide to disguise themselves as women in order to live in affordable women-only accommodation.
Scolari and Hanks remained good friends in real life, as Scolari said in an interview with the American media, Oprah Winfrey, that Hanks gave him a toast at his wedding.
Scolari won an Emmy in 2016 for his portrayal of Hannah’s father, Tad Horvath, in Girls.
Scolari also co-starred in the Gotham series, and played the character of Peter Madoff in the famous series “Madoff”.
