Tony Shalhoub will be in town on Thursday night.

"Monk" star helps open new studio in Milwaukee

"Monk" star and Emmy and Golden Golden winner Tony Shalhoub joins local dignitaries on Thursday, Jan. 8 to help open RDI Stages, a new Milwaukee-area entertainment studio complex at 2525 E. Crawford Ave, in St. Francis.

Shalhoub, a Green Bay native, will cut the ribbon for the new $6 million RDI Studio complex. The investment is a result of the growing film, television and video gaming presence in Wisconsin as a result of the Film Wisconsin tax incentive legislation that took effect Jan. 1, 2008.

In addition, Shalhoub, will return to his home state in February to begin shooting a new feature film, "Feed the Fish." About three weeks of principal photography is scheduled in Door County. The film is directed by Michael Matzdorff and produced by Alison Abrohams and Nick Langholff.

Thursday's event is open to the general public. It begins at 4 p.m. with tours of the facility running until 8 p.m.
