Essentially, Scolari's biggest public portrait was of his comic work paired up alongside critical darling Tom Hanks in the fondly remembered cross-dressing comedy Bosom Buddies from the 1980's. His career took off from there, and an incredible assortment of television work followed.
The actor did build a resume light on Science Fiction and Fantasy credentials, and there are a few roadstops he took along the way worthy of mentioning. He enjoyed a role in an episode of the late 80's incarnation of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone. In 1993, he turned up working in the Horror/SciFi release Ticks for Republic Pictures. 1994 saw him as a guest star aboard an episode of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman. In 1995, he turned his voice in for good work aboard the popular animated property of its day, Gargoyles. But it wasn't until 1997 when TV put the actor back to good use as a lead aboard the small screen incarnation of Honey, I Shrunk The Kids (1997-2000). The problem likely brought the star increased attention from a younger group of viewers, and I'd imagine he was thankful for the opportunity to play inventor 'Wayne Szalinski' for Walt Disney Television.
Alas, an end awaits every one of us, and word reached the Information Superhighway that he passed after a two-year struggle with cancer. We'll always have his work to remember him by. Prayers go out to Scolari's friends and family.
As always, thanks for reading.
