  • 'Happy Days' Star: Elmo Creator Has Talent, Ignore Sex Abuse Allegations

    11/21/2012 1:51:27 PM PST · by servo1969 · 46 replies ^ | November 21, 2012 | Christian Toto
    Henry Winkler of "Happy Days" fame is considered one of the nicest people in Hollywood. You don't hear any horror stories about his on-set behavior, and he's managed to leave the iconic Fonzie character behind to play supporting roles in projects like "Arrested Development" and "Here Comes the Boom." Winkler's reaction to puppeteer Kevin Clash resigning from "Sesame Street" amid allegations the puppeteer engaged in sexual acts with minors hardly seemed in character. In fact, Winkler's comment is downright ugly. No one is disputing Clash's talents. Just watch last year's documentary "Being Elmo" to marvel at his many gifts. But...

    The actor and director, who played the Fonz in the classic US sitcom, said it was "humbling" to receive the honour, awarded at the British embassy in Washington DC. Having been diagnosed with dyslexia as an adult, Winkler has toured schools in Britain over the last two years to talk about the learning difficulty. He has also written books for children about Hank Zipzer, a boy with dyslexia, whose experiences are based on the actor's own childhood struggles. In a statement on the embassy's website, Winkler said: "Receiving this honour is a very humbling experience. "My goal when I started...

    In a video posted Thursday on, the actor-turned-director reprises his role on "The Andy Griffith Show" as a way to rally support for Barack Obama. While speaking into the camera, Howard has his beard shaved, dons a youthful red wig and puts on the kind of outfit he would have only worn as Opie Taylor in the `60s.

    (Funds found to build statue of TV icon downtown) Pop culture fans, rejoice. Art lovers, shudder. It's official: The bronze statue of the Fonz will be added to downtown Milwaukee later this year.

Henry Winkler, who played Fonzie in the show, was in town to mark the occasion. He spoke with reporters in front of the Culver's restaurant in the Shops of Grand Avenue. "I can only say that I'm proud...

    Henry Winkler won fame on the old "Happy Days" comedy. He played Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli, also know as Fonzie or the Fonz. In real life, Winkler certainly isn't the tough guy he portrayed. He is an ardent liberal who over the years has made campaign contributions to Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry and many of the usual suspects. Wednesday night on CNN Headline News' Glenn Beck show he made an appearance to plug his new movie. He was asked by the host: "So now if you saw -- I mean, if you had, you know, a remote control, like...
