Tony Shalhoub is an American actor, who has been in the spotlight of television stage and film consistently since 1986. Shalhoub is best know for his television series acting as Antonio Scarapacci in Wings and the role that defined his career, playing Adrian Monk. The TV series Monk earned Tony Shalhoub a Golden Globe and 3 Emmy Awards, as an actor. During early 2013, Tony Shalhoub was in the public eye via his motion picture work.
Many fans were surprised to see him play a cameo in the raunchy anti-establishment film Movie 43. Soon afterwards came the film release of Pain & Gain, in which Shalhoub played a starring role as character Victor Kershaw. In May 2013, Tony Shalhoub had returned to television again, with the CBS sitcom We Are Men. The show received good ratings from critics and fans, so it appeared that Shalhoub was back on top again, but it wasn't meant to be. The show was cut from the CBS lineup in October and canceled permanently.
Tony Shalhoub's career has been the delight of both mainstream television fans, but also an unusually strong cult following. As demonstrated by a current ironic twist of media fame and fate. Just as We Are Men is being canceled, a Philadelphia trip-hop group called AMMT with Codeine Teen has released a single on November 27,2013 entitled Joe Pesci Tony Shalhoub.
In addition to his accomplished acting, Tony Shalhoub has been married to Brooke Adams since 1992. They have 2 children and a rather public personal life. The couple has appeared in films and television together, including several episodes of the Monk series. Being an actor is Tony Shalhoub's main ambition, unlike so many celebrity personalities today. Over time, Tony Shalhoub has become a quiet superstar by due diligence. So there is little doubt that he will be working soon again.
