Actor Shalhoub up for Emmy

Nominees for the 61st annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning. Among them was Green Bay native and one-time campus stage actor Tony Shalhoub, nominated for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series as the title character on USA Network’s “Monk.” It’s his seventh nomination; he has won three Emmys. Shalhoub, of course, didn’t actually enroll at UW-Green Bay but did star in the new university’s 1973 production of “Captain Jack’s Revenge” when he was a high school senior.
