Afro[edit]

Could someone tak about his afro? It is more than clear that an African element is in this guy along with his Roman face. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.235.94.254 (talk) 21:42, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

There is an African element in all of us, because that is the continent on which we first stood upright and began communicating with words. Before that time, we were whooping in the high branches.Lestrade (talk) 18:39, 6 February 2008 (UTC)Lestrade
well you're dumb, believe it or not, there isn't just Africans and Romans, Black and white in the world. Black people don't own the afro, Arabs can have afros, Jews can have afros - it doesn't make them African. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.174.242.250 (talk) 05:54, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Physical Alteration[edit]

During the third season of Monk, it became evident to discerning viewers that the character changed more than his assistant. Tony Shalhoub appeared after having had cosmetic surgery on his eyelids. He now has the same appearance of heavy-liddedness that many other actors and actresses display.Lestrade 13:44, 16 January 2006 (UTC)Lestrade

The blepharoplasty was ingeniously concealed. Taking a lesson from stage magicians, who distract the audience with one hand while they move the other hand, the producers changed Monk's female partner at the same time that he had his surgery. In this way, the audience was distracted by the change from Sharona to Natalie. They never noticed Monk's circumcised eyelids.Lestrade 20:24, 9 June 2007 (UTC)Lestrade

Nephew[edit]

His nephew goes to Owen J. Roberts School District. He dresses in a pure white suit. --71.224.19.29 15:41, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Name in Arabic + transliteration[edit]

Is there any need to have his name in Arabic and transliterated? It's not like he's commonly known by that Arabic name, as far as I know. Are there any guidelines regarding this? -- Amazins490 (talk) 15:28, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

He is commonly known by his stage name "Tony Shalhoub", which is partially an Arabic name. Per WP:AMOS, the Arabic script and transliteration are suitable additions, because the name Shalhoub is originally Arabic. The transliteration is less necessary and can be removed if you wish.

Thanks for your help! -- Amazins490 (talk) 16:18, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

AmericanEast[edit]

I removed "The 1st Arab-American Film" from next to americaneast, until there are sources for it — Preceding unsigned comment added by Heatsketch (talkcontribs) 5 March 2008

Nice theory, but I heard that they changed his assistant was because the actress who played Sharona was fired for demanding a raise. (anyone care to confirm this?)--66.29.169.1 (talk) 03:11, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
I looked it up, and it's merely rumored that Bitty Schram was fired due to a contract dispute (the other actors involved were kept on the show, miraculously). I have to admit, that doesn't really help my credibility, so your theory is plausible. --66.29.169.1 (talk) 03:19, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Religion[edit]

I heard, only heard, that he is a devout Muslim. The fact that he is Lebonese kind of reanforces this. Does anyone know anything about his religion? Zakariya bin Dana (talk) 19:18, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

shalhoub tends to be a christian-arab last name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.123.4.230 (talk) 16:00, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

I do not find any information that Tony Shalhoub is a Muslim however I did find this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebanese_American stating 90% of Lebanese are ChristianDiapeters (talk) 11:04, 18 May 2011 (UTC)Dia Peters

- It is spelled Lebanese, and no, that is not proof of your concept since 89% of the Lebanese Diaspora is Christian and the name Lebanon itself is in Syriac, the Maronite's chosen language, itself meaning snow. Also, he is a barely religous Maronite from what I understand, though I think he's been somewhat secularized by our country.


He is listed as Maronite : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Maronites But he seems to keep his religion to himself. The chance of him being Muslim is slim to none, and he may even be offended by the notion...Most Christian-lebanese left Lebanon due to increasing Muslim persecution of them, im sure as a descendent of a survivor, he would be flattered... 107.222.205.242 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 06:11, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Final episode of monk.[edit]

I enjoyed the series monk. I looked forward to each episode,when I saw it is the end,I couldn't believe it. so sorry to see the end. Each time it (monk) airs I'll be watching!20:36, 27 July 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.240.150.222 (talk)

Age is 46 or 56?[edit]

I'm looking at the page right now and it says he was born October 9, 1963 (age 46). WHERE IS THE SOURCE that says he was born in 1963 as opposed to 1953 (which was what I saw last time)????? 60.50.136.82 (talk) 06:05, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Gargoyles[edit]

I don't know where else to post this but he was also a voice actor in the cartoon Gargoyles. Guest voice for emir in episode 43 (season 2). He's listed by wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Gargoyles_cast_members but I don't know of any other references. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.127.140.124 (talk) 05:03, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Role selection[edit]

I know roles for Arab Americans are hard to come by unless its for a generic terrorist, but is there any reason he hasn't portrayed an arab/arab american in any films? He was a self-hating arab in "the siege" and he was "Sam the Jew" in AmericanEast. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.123.4.230 (talk) 16:03, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

cars 2 and Men in Black 3[edit]

ummm why is it no mention of these movies are here? I know there is men in black 3, because E.N.I. reported on it.--69.225.198.198 (talk) 06:37, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Twilight?[edit]

Where is the reference that states Shalhoub was in Twilight? The IMDb doesn't mention it. Is it some other show unrelated to the Stephanie Meyers series? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 19:37, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Gypsy[edit]

it isn't mentioned that he appeared with bette midler in gypdy. . .

Look under Television, it was a TV movie--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 15:05, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Any relation to Omar Sharif?[edit]

I have no idea how common the surname Shalhoub is, but in reading about Peter O'Toole and 'Lawrence of Arabia' after O'Toole's recent death, I learned that Omar Sharif's original surname was Shalhoub. Further, there's apparently some evidence of Lebanese heritage in Sharif's background. I would have asked my question on Sharif's talk page -- but there's a lot of contentious argument there -- so I thought I would ask on Tony Shalhoub's talk page instead. I do recognize that Shalhoub could be a common Lebanese surname, and I plead ignorance on the topic. I'm just curious if there might possibly be any blood relation between Messrs. Shalhoub and Sharif. If so, IMO it would be worth a brief mention. Regards, 72.0.15.8 (talk) 18:24, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I did ask that question on Omar Sharif's page a few minutes ago, before I came here. 155.213.224.59 (talk) 18:42, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
