DUPLEX

DANNY DEVITO (Director) is an actor, producer and director; he has been called one of the entertainment industry's most versatile players. 

DeVito wrote, directed and produced several short films in his early Hollywood years, before his emergence as a feature-length filmmaker in 1984. In 1992 DeVito added another dimension when he co-founded Jersey Films. Jersey has produced over 20 motion pictures, including the academy award nominated Erin Brockovich, Man on the Moon, Pulp Fiction, Out of Sight, Get Shorty, Hoffa, Matilda and Living Out Loud

Though two films co-starring DeVito won the Academy Award for best picture (One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and Terms of Endearment), it was the part of Louie De Palma that propelled him into national prominence as star of the hit television show Taxi. In a 1999 readers' poll conducted by TV Guide, DeVito's Louie De Palma was voted number one in "TV's Fifty Greatest Character's Ever.” 

DeVito has also starred in many films not produced by Jersey. They include Anything Else, Big Fish, Renaissance Man, The Big Kahuna, and Heist

Following Taxi and before the creation of Jersey Films, DeVito starred in such films as Junior, Batman Returns, Twins, Romancing the Stone, Jewel of the Nile, Ruthless People and Tin Men

Danny studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. His first role was a starring one in one of three one-act plays presented together under the title of The Man With the Flower in His Mouth

Soon other stage performances followed in rapid succession. Among his credits were Down the Morning Line, The Line of Least Existence, The Shrinking Bride and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

In 1975, under a grant from the American Film Institute, Danny and his wife, actress Rhea Perlman, wrote and produced Minestrone, which has been shown twice at the Cannes Film Festival and has been translated into five languages. Later they wrote and produced a 16-millimeter black-and-white short subject, "The Sound Sleeper," which won first prize at the Brooklyn Arts and Cultural Association competition.
