Can you believe we were living in a world where Danny DeVito was devoid of concrete and marble devotion? Luckily, the powers-that-be have rectified this unfortunate hiccup and have given the actor what he deserves: a beautiful star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
It’s hard to believe DeVito has been making movies since 1970. He may only be five feet tall, but his the impact he has left on Hollywood is larger than most actors can ever hope to achieve.
In 1975, he was approached by director Milos Forman and Michael Douglas about appearing in the film version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), which would star Jack Nicholson in the leading role. With box office success almost guaranteed and a chance for national exposure, Danny agreed to the role.
America was exposed to DeVito. The rest, is history.
