Daniel Michael DeVito Jr. is an American filmmaker and actor. Born on November 17, 1944, this 74-year-old has had a long and illustrious career and still remains a prominent figure in Hollywood. DeVito began to gain immense popularity for his role as Louie De Palma, the taxi dispatcher, in ‘Taxi’ the television series where he appeared from 1978 to 1983. The role ultimately won him a Golden Globe and an Emmy. DeVito is also a major film star who has notable movies under his belt including ‘Tin Men’, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’, ‘Terms of Endearment’, ‘Man on the Moon’, ‘Batman Returns’, ‘L.A. Confidential’, ‘Look Who’s Talking Now’, ‘Matilda’, ‘Romancing the Stone’. He has also lent his voice to films like ‘The Lorax’, ‘Space Jam’ and ‘Hercules’.
However, DeVito did not limit his expertise to only acting and he founded Jersey Films along with Michael Shamberg. Some of the most famous films they produced include Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction‘, which happened after Stacy Sher joined as an equal partner. Sher was of the opinion that following the buzz around Tarantino’s first yet unreleased film, ‘Reservoir Dogs’, whoever signed him next would be making a smart move. When she made the necessary introductions, DeVito recalls,“I listened to him for about 10 minutes, thinking, I may be meeting someone who talks faster than Martin Scorsese. I said, ”I want to make a deal with you for your next movie, whatever it is.'”
Among other notable movies produced by DeVito’s Jersey Films are ‘Erin Brockovich’, ‘Garden State’ and ‘Freedom Writers’. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Danny DeVito movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Danny DeVito films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Danny DeVito movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
1. The Kominsky Method (2018- Present)
‘The Kominsky Method’ is a Netflix comedy series that aired in 2018. The show follows the life of Sandy Kominsky, played by Michael Douglas. He had a brief fling with success but has now been forced to live a life as a revered Hollywood coach. He is accompanied by his friend and agent Norman Newlander, played by Alan Arkin. As the two figure out how to live out towards the end of their lives, the comedy circles around what goes on in the acting classes Kominsky takes. Danny DeVito appears in the role of Dr. Wexler, a urologist. Considering that Kominsky goes to Wexler often regarding his frequent urination, there is a good chance that DeVito will reprise his role in Season 2 when it airs in 2019. While no release date has been fixed yet, Season 1 aired on November 16, so we expect Season 2 to arrive around the same time.
2. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2005- Present)
