Danny DeVito received on August 18th the 2,445th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in los Angeles C.A., 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.

Putting a new twist on the tradition of having the honoree be the first person to step on the sidewalk star, DeVito took off a shoe and sock stood on his star with one bare foot.

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.

DeVito’s film credits include “Batman Returns” as the Penguin; “Romancing the Stone,” “The Jewel of the Nile” and “The War of the Roses” with his longtime friend Michael Douglas; “Twins” and “Junior” opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Terms of Endearment”; “Ruthless People”; “Tin Men”; “Hoffa”; and “Matilda.”

He directed “Throw Momma from the Train”; “The War of the Roses”; “Hoffa”; “Matilda”; “Death to Smoochy”; and “Duplex.”

DeVito’s movie producing credits include best picture nominee “Erin Brockovich”; “Pulp Fiction”; “Get Shorty”; “Man on the Moon”; “Gattaca”; and “Garden State.” From 2006-2010, he appeared on 63 episodes of TV series “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” as character “Frank Reynolds.”
