Danny DeVito received his first star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today

HollywoodNews.com: Danny DeVito, star of the hit TV show IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, a veteran of numerous television and films and an Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winner, was honored today with his first-ever star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on the occasion of his 40th anniversary in show business and the launch of Season 6 of the popular original FX series on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13.

DeVito is one of the entertainment industry’s most versatile players, excelling as actor, producer and director. He wrote, directed and produced several short films in his early Hollywood years before emerging as a feature-length filmmaker. Dark comedic themes characterize his trademark films, including “The Ratings Game,” “Throw Momma From the Train,” “The War of the Roses,” “Hoffa” and “Matilda.”

DeVito is the principal of Jersey Film’s 2nd Avenue, a predecessor company of Jersey Films which has produced more than 20 motion pictures, including “Man on the Moon,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Get Shorty,” “Hoffa,” and “Erin Brockovich” (which was nominated for an Academy Award).

Two films co-starring DeVito won the Academy Award for Best Picture (“One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Terms of Endearment”), but it was the part of Louie De Palma on the television show “Taxi” that propelled him to national prominence.
