He didn't win a Tony Award for his role in "Golden Boy'' during Sunday night's ceremonies, but Tony Shalhoub has earned an honor nevertheless.
The Green Bay-born actor will be the grand marshal of the Olde Ellison Bay Days Parade at 11 a.m. June 29 in Door County. So take that, Broadway!
Shalhoub, best known for his TV roles on "Monk'' and "Wings,'' will roll through town with his nephew, Michael Matzdorf, who is co-marshal.
If you're smelling something fishy in this year's choices, well, it's because the theme of the 47th annual Olde Ellison Bay Days is "Feed the Fish,'' the 2009 movie of the same name filmed in and around Ellison Bay. Shalhoub plays the local sheriff in the film, and Matzdorf produced and directed it.
The two-day free festival kicks off June 28 and includes a pie-baking contest, art demonstrations, children's games, arts and crafts fair, music by Replica and Rocky Waters, food and "I Fed the Fish in Ellison Bay'' T-shirts.
For those who don't catch Shalhoub along the parade route, look for him on Monday nights on CBS this fall in a new comedy called "We Are Men.'' He stars opposite Jerry O'Connell, Chris Smith and Kal Penn as four divorced guys looking for love in a housing complex. He'll play Frank Russo, a four-time divorcee who still fancies himself a ladies man. It'll be Shalhoub's first TV series since "Monk'' ended in 2009.
