Huge thank you to the iconic multiple Golden Globes and Emmy Award winning actor Henry Winkler for coming on my show for an interview! We began the interview talking about Henry's political views, the importance of climate change, and the uproar of people not wanting to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. We then got into his time in theater, his role as Butchey in The Lords of Flatbush, and how he was the reason for Sylvester Stallone making Rocky. Henry discussed getting the role of the most iconic TV character of all time Arthur Fonzarelli aka Fonzie or "The Fonz", his first day on the set of Happy Days, and if there will be another Happy Days reunion in the near future. He talked about what it was like working with Pat Morita, who played Arnold on Happy Days and later played Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid films. We then talked about Henry's role as Chuck Lumley in Ron Howard's 1982 Night Shift, working alongside Michael Keaton, and his cousin Richard Belzer. Fun Fact: Henry Winkler did not know that he and Richard Belzer were cousins until they did an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit together. We talked about his role as Principal Himbry in the late great Wes Craven's 1996 classic masterpiece Scream, his death scene taking two hours to film, and his Fonz jacket being in the closet scene. Henry is afraid of watching horror films and told the story of seeing Jaws for the first time when it was in theaters back in 1975. Henry told me about how it felt winning an Emmy for the first time as an actor for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Barry in 2018. We finished the interview talking about his important book series Hank Zipzer that he created with his writing partner Lin Oliver in 2003 to help kids who have dyslexia. He has a new book series called Alien Superstar and the final book of the trilogy is releasing this October. HBO's Season 3 of Barry will start filming on July 30th, 2021 and will be releasing soon. He is also the voice of Fritz in the new Monsters at Work animated series. Stay tuned! Thank you Henry Winkler for all of your timeless work in TV, film, literature, and most importantly being an inspiration to the world.
