They're up for Broadway's highest honor tonight, but these Tony nominees, including one well-known in Northeastern Wisconsin, began their careers on TV:

Tony Shalhoub (featured actor, play, "Golden Boy"): A decade before taking on his best-known role as the obsessive-compulsive detective on "Monk" (2002-09), the Green Bay native had a supporting role on the comedy "Wings" (1991-1997) as a romantic cabdriver.

Tom Hanks (actor, play, "Lucky Guy"): Playing a man who had to pretend to be a woman, Hanks co-starred on "Bosom Buddies" (1980-82).

Judith Light (featured actress, play, "The Assembled Parties"): On "Who's the Boss?" (1984-92), she starred as a high-powered divorcee who hires a "manny" to watch her kids.

"The 67th Annual Tony Awards'' airs at 7 p.m. today on CBS. Neil Patrick Harris hosts.
