Get Shorty: Hollywood's 15 Shortest Actors

April 24th, 2014 4:03pm EDT
Verne Troyer
Stars come in all shapes and sizes, and these actors prove your height doesn't decide your talent. Here are 15 of Hollywood's shortest actors.

Verne Troyer, 2'8". Verne got his start as a stuntman (he did stunts for an infant in Baby's Day Out), but is widely known as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers series.

Peter Dinklage, 4'5". Dinklage is now well known for his work on the series Game of Thrones as Tyrion Lannister. When asked if he should be the "spokesman for little people," he said, "I don't know what I would say. Everyone's different. Every person my size has a different life, a di...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: The Gang Gets Quarantined

October 17th, 2013 2:18pm EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
If "The Gang Tries Desperately to Win an Award" was the Sunny creators' way of putting the Television Academy on notice, "The Gang Gets Quarantined" is an exercise in providing some excellent material for Glenn Howerton's Emmy nomination reel. As a whole, it's not one of the best episodes in recent memory, but thanks to Howerton's performance and some really funny moments, it manages to stay just above average.

One of those funny moments is the cold open, which finds the original gang doin' a little East Coast swing. It's been a while since we've seen them harmonizing their hearts out (my...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: Mac Day

October 3rd, 2013 3:14pm EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Yesterday was no ordinary day in Philadelphia — it was Mac Day. Mac Day, as we discovered, was just one of the five days that the gang created for each member to make everyone else do whatever the days' honoree wants. At first blush, it seems like a strangely generous setup for such a selfish group of people. But as Mac Day rolls along, it becomes apparent that each member of the gang is simply going through the motions until it's their day, all while filing away the events of their friends' days to use as fuel for future mockery.   

Being the religious one of the group, Mac patterns the s...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap -- Gun Fever Too: Still Hot

September 12th, 2013 10:42am EDT
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Last night on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the gang addressed the hot-button issue of gun control in the same fashion that the rest of the world does: they formed two opposing sides who yelled at each other about how stupid and wrong they are.

Frank set everything in motion with his appearance on "Good Morning Philadelphia" (hoagie in hand), where he described his recent experience being held up by gun-toting thugs. Crediting his survival to his two pieces that are on him at all times, he urged everyone to get down to Gunther's Guns to arm themselves. This whipped the rest of the g...

Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman
After separating last year, Hollywood couple Danny DeVito and his wife Rhea Perlman are reportedly back together again. The couple wed in 1982 and have three kids all in their 20s.
 
In October, the pair decided to end their 30-year marriage. However, over the last five months they've spent a lot of time working on their issues with the aim of reconciling, according to several reports.
 
In December, the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star, 68, talked to "Extra" about his relationship with Rhea, and when he was asked if there was any chance of a reconciliation, he said, "We're actually...

It isn't officially over between Danny DeVito and his wife Rhea Perlman. The couple separated in October, but the actor insists he and Rhea are "working on" their problems and remain close.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'Frank's Back in Business'

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
OK, I'm just gonna say it, and you people can stone me (or think I'm stoned) if you want: Frank is my least favorite "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" character. Don't get me wrong; I have mad love for Danny DeVito. And it's not that I dislike Frank. Saying he's my least favorite character out of a cast of amazing characters is kind of like saying that Sunday is my least favorite day of the weekend. I mean, it's still a pretty damn good day off work. But in my opinion, Frank is to "Sunny" what Newman is to "Seinfeld": a character so completely deranged and sub-human that he always brings ...

Danny DeVito Says 'Everything's Good' Since Split With Rhea Perlman

Danny DeVito seems to be taking his split from Rhea Perlman just fine. The actor stepped out in public on Monday for the first time since the couple parted ways.

DeVito and the "Cheers" actress have stayed out of the spotlight since the news broke, but the actor stepped out in Malibu, California yesterday.

Reporters from TMZ.com asked him how he was doing, and DeVito smiled and replied, "Everything's good", before giving a thumbs up gesture.

The couple stunned fans after announcing they had separated after 30 years of marriage earlier this month. Neither party has filed divorce papers ye...

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Recap: 'The Gang Recycles Their Trash'

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
After a Hopper incident that caused me to miss the premiere of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (insert a Liam McPoyle slow-mo “Noooooooo!” here), the DVR gods were merciful and finally allowed me to get in on some Season 8 action. Although, while watching the cold open of this season’s second episode, I was a little concerned that, through some sort of weird, wormhole-y, space-time mix-up, I’d actually recorded an episode from Season 3, specifically “The Gang Finds a Dumpster Baby.” As Dennis, Mac and Dee waded through the trash piled up behind Paddy’s, Dennis’s remarks about their “thr...

Source: Danny DeVito Romanced Extra, Promised To Make Her A Star

Danny DeVito
More bombshells are dropping after Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman ending their marriage after 30 years. Soon after, rumors swirled that Perlman was tired of DeVito's womanizing ways. Now, a source claims they witnessed Danny wooing a female extra with promises of fame.

The source told RadarOnline that Danny approached an extra working on the movie Hoffa in the 90s and told her he could use his fame to further her career. "It was kind of pathetic because she was very young and beautiful and obviously just having sex with him in hopes that he'd make her a star."

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
It came as a surprise when long-time couple Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito announced their divorce yesterday, but reportedly it was a long time coming.

RadarOnline reports that the two have been "unhappy for years," and that Rhea was getting angrier and angrier over Danny's womanizing ways. "He may not appear to be a ladies’ man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention," a source said.

"Despite his reputation as a lovable, funny guy in movies and on TV, Danny’s actually quite the womanizer. And, like a lot of red-blooded males, if he sees an attractive girl in a coffee shop or w...

Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman & 5 Other Longtime Famous Couples Who Split Up

October 8th, 2012 6:00pm EDT
Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman
The news that Danny DeVito, 67, and Rhea Perlman, 64, split after a staggering 30 years together shocked fans around the world this morning. The couple, who have three children together, met after Rhea saw the actor in a play in 1971. They got married in 1982.

No reason was given for the split, but according to AARP, extramarital affairs for people 45 and older are relatively rare. So the odds that Danny or Rhea met someone else is likely not the cause of their break up.

Some relationships just fizzle out over time. Sometimes a couple's personal issues intensify. Most typically, a husband...

Danny DeVito Deems Arnold Schwarzenegger's Governorship 'A Disaster!'

Danny DeVito
Danny DeVito was devastated when Arnold Schwarzenegger launched a career in politics as it cost him millions of dollars by stalling a sequel to their hit comedy Twins.

The pair teamed up for the 1988 movie, about two long-lost siblings, and DeVito was eager to work on a follow-up 15 years later - but Schwarzenegger torpedoed the proposal as he was running in the election for Governor of California.

DeVito admits the snub sent him into a spiral of despair and he became convinced his pal's political ambitions were "the stupidest thing in the world."

He tells U.K. talk show host Graham No...

The big screen adaptation of the beloved children's book, featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms and Danny DeVito, now holds the biggest debut of the year so far, beating the $41.2 million romantic drama The Vow garnered last month.

You’ve already heard Dr. Seuss’s legendary creature The Lorax speak in commercials for the new movie and even TV promos for Mazda. It is the distinct voice of legendary actor Danny DeVito. Other countries will get to enjoy the unique voice of DeVito speaking their native tongues too, as the filmmakers decided to have DeVito voice the Spanish, Italian, German and Russian editions of The Lorax too.

"This is the thing,” DeVito said. “I don't speak any of those languages. I speak a tiny bit of Italian, but I did it all with coaches and phonetically and it was a lot of work. We did the whole th...

Zac Efron knows he’s a hit with the high school contingent, and after three High School Musicals, they’re growing up with him. Efron’s done some more grown-up comedies like 17 Again and New Years Eve, and some drama in Charlie St. Cloud and Me and Orson Welles. Now he’s going for an even younger audience.

The Lorax is Efron’s first animated movie. He provides the voice of Ted, a young boy with a crush on Audrey (Taylor Swift). When Ted goes looking for the one last tree outside of town, he learns the story of the Lorax (Danny DeVito) and how an entrepreneur, The Once-ler (Ed Helms) talked ...

Danny DeVito got up close and personal with a giant Lorax mascot at "The Lorax" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday. We don't know who's more huggable!

In the Dr. Seuss tale, a boy encounters a cantankerous forest creature after leaving his artificial city in search of a tree. Ted (voice of Zac Efron) lives in a town where everything is plastic, including the plants. He boldly leaves the city determined to find a "real, living tree" for his crush Audrey (Taylor Swift).

Along the way, Ted crosses paths with the Lorax (DeVito), a diminutive, mustached defender of nature who doesn't take k...

“My heart was in my throat,” DeVito said. “I was like oh my God. Can you believe that? The guy sits down in the end zone, gets a touchdown but we still had downs to go. We could’ve taken that clock for a walk, and that last minute. Ohhhhh.”

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: 'The High School Reunion Part 2: The Gang's Revenge'

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” closed out its seventh season last night with the conclusion of last week’s high school reunion tale, and thankfully the second half was better than the first. Still, it didn’t come close to the high expectations I had for it. I may eventually come around on this (as I did with “The Nightman Cometh,” an episode I inexplicably didn’t like upon first viewing), but for now I’m calling it the series’ weakest season ender yet. (Oh, there will be rankings. Just wait.)

Picking up from where we left off last week, the gang is collectively humiliated. Dennis a...

In the first half of the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Season 7 finale, the gang heads to their high school reunion. Although there were plenty of familiar names and faces and some good moments, the episode wasn’t up to the level that I expect from “Sunny” – especially for a season-ender. Hopefully, the second half will wrap up this season in the proper demented and darkly funny fashion.

It’s always been apparent that high school was a pivotal time for the gang, and none of them seem to have changed very much since those days. Dee may have physically changed – from the Aluminum M...

Sorry for the delay with today's recap, folks. I was having some Internet problems. I blame Obama.

This week, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” tries a theme episode – the action-movie-within-an-action-movie, “Thunder Gun Express” – with mixed results. Although there are some funny moments, it never reaches the level of the brilliant “Community” theme episodes, against which all theme episodes must now be measured. Compared to its own attempts at themes or gimmicks, this installment of “Sunny” is certainly better than “Frank’s Brother” or “The Gang Cracks the Liberty Bell,” but not near...

While last week’s episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” started in the middle and never looked back, this week’s installment is told mostly in flashback. Via the classic church confessional setup, Mac finally acknowledges the elephant in the room: that he is the elephant in the room. (Oh, snap!)

Although Mac now realizes that the extra mass around his waist isn’t muscle, he isn’t about to take responsibility for being fat. As that poor priest quickly discovers, “How Mac Got Fat” is a convoluted story, told from Mac’s POV, that explains why the Paddy’s gang of “sinners and pricks...

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” shook up its formula this week with "The Gang Gets Trapped," a creative yet odd episode that caught up with the gang in media res. For a story that was pretty much all "middle"—with no flashback to its beginning and an awkward ending—it was easy to follow, wildly entertaining and jam-packed with laugh-out-loud moments.

The episode takes place entirely in an unknown person's home, and begins with Dennis and Dee trapped in the closet with R. Kelly nowhere to be found and Frank hiding under a bed. With a clever bit of exposition, Dennis quickly ge...
