Danny DeVito is known as an American actor. He is most famous for his role as Frank on the TV show 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.'

Parents and Education

Danny DeVito was born Daniel Michael DeVito Jr. on November 17, 1944, in Neptune, New Jersey. DeVito was raised by his mom, Julia, and his father, Danny Sr., an entrepreneur whose different endeavors included a laundry, restaurant, dairy store, and pool lobby. Danny Jr. went to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Grammar School and Oratory Prep High School in Summit, New Jersey, where he took a stab at acting, featuring in school productions of St. Francis of Assisi and the Billion Dollar Saint.

Wife and Kids

While acting in a 1970 off-Broadway production of The Shrinking Bride, DeVito met actress Rhea Perlman, best known for her long-running role on the TV sitcom Cheers. DeVito and Perlman moved in together two weeks after meeting and got married in 1982. They had three children, Lucy Gracie, and Jake. They declared that they were splitting up in October 2012, after over three decades together. In 2013, after a long stretch of being away from each other, the couple reunited.

Many of their fans remember that they played the parents of a little with special abilities in the movie, 'Matilda'. They were the exact opposite of how they are in real life as they were mean parents to Matilda in the film.

Acting Career and Net Worth

In 1971 DeVito handled the role of Martini in an off-Broadway production of Ken Kesey's exemplary novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. That role prompted DeVito's enormous break four years after the fact when Michael Douglas produced a film version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and asked DeVito to restore his stage role. Broadly commended by pundits, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest cleared wone five noteworthy Academy Awards (Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay) in 1976, catapulting DeVito into the national spotlight.

After a long break from TV, DeVito came back to TV in 2005, featuring in the hit FX series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. With It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, DeVito and his castmates, including Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton, have pushed the envelope as far as its substance. For a long time, it was the only project that Danny worked on because of the material he loved so much. In July 2019, Always Sunny fans were delighted to catch Danny in the new trailer for Jumanji.
