Danny DeVito Gets Star On Walk of Fame
DN -- Danny DeVito received the 2,445th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, honoring a career that started slow but ultimately turned him into a success both in front of and behind the camera.
The ceremony was held in connection with the Sept. 13 release of the DVD of the sixth season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the FX comedy in which DeVito co-stars as the ne'er-do-well co-owner of a Philadelphia bar.
DeVito's first high-profile role was as the caustic dispatcher Louie De Palma on "Taxi," which ran on ABC from 1978-82 and NBC in the 1982-83 season. DeVito received four Emmy nominations as outstanding supporting actor in a comedy or variety series, winning the award in 1981.
