Henry Winkler, entertainment since he was Good days In the year In the 1970s, Mann maintained his relevance in projects like that over the decades. noiseAdam Sandler’s catalog, Arrested development And HBO’s Barry, this time, just periodically and appear on another show – or not. Checks will continue.
But that wouldn’t be his style. The 77-year-old was forced to speak out about his personal views, including on controversial issues such as the need for more gun control and book bans, as he fired two members of the Tennessee House after protesting and having fun. Thoughts on soup.
“I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you exactly,” Winkler told Yahoo Entertainment about why he’s doing it. “We’re on this planet together. And it’s our responsibility.” Silence is as bad as inaction, allowing all that disagrees to exist. It’s our way as individuals, I think. Helping each other. This is my point of view. What is your point of view? I think this country should listen to each other. Going to your eye doctor.”
Winkler is currently sharing his family’s experience with the eye disease geographic atrophy, advanced macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness. It partnered with drug brand Apellis, which this year received FDA approval for a drug intended to slow the progression of the disease.
“One of the gifts I got from the marriage when I married Stacey was my mother-in-law,” said Winkler, who married Stacey Whitman in 1978, with whom they share two grown children and a daughter. “I had a very difficult father. [But] Here was a man, very tall, very tweedy and a great dentist, with a wonderful sense of humor. And we got along incredibly well. He became a dentist. You are a dentist, you work in very small spaces. And suddenly changes began to appear in his vision. AMD got it… it couldn’t work in a small space. If he wanted the practice, he had to close it first. He could not see his grandchildren. Unable to see the boy’s face, he asked if the boy still had a beard. And I thought, ‘Wow, this is a wake-up call. My favorite person is here. I can see him withdrawing into himself.’ And I thought, you know what, now I tell people, ‘Go get your eyes checked. Go to your doctor and get your eyes checked.”
From the Fonz to Gene Cocino
Winkler shares more in his new memoir, Being Henry … The Fonz and Beyond, set for release this fall. The author of several early books, including some that can be found in the children’s section of the library, we expect more from him, unfiltered.
“I tried to really talk about who I was and who I am now, how disconnected I am from the parts of my life that aren’t in the work world, and how fun it is to connect with who you are,” Winkler says. “I honestly believe you know yourself, you know everybody, no matter who we are, where we come from, all human beings on this earth share a common will, a common sense of existence, for the most part. Connecting with that. It’s so exciting. I feel terrible for wasting so much time. That means That’s as true as I can get.
Winkler’s acting will be the primary focus, however, as Barry He started his fourth and final season on Sunday. Before he, of course, learns of the nefarious work he does when the student doesn’t run the line, the somewhat greedy and depressed acting teacher Gene Cousino returns. But Jin himself is far from perfect.
He asked what it was Good days Character Fonzie thinks about Gene, Winkler had some opinion.
“I think the Fonz was more honest than Gene,” Winkler says. “I think the Fonz was upset with Gene. At first, he didn’t care about what he was doing. The Fonz was a great mechanic. He prided himself on being able to fix anything that moved. Gene prided himself on making everybody pay. Up front and in cash.”
dead end Barry
In the first two parts of the last batch Barry episodes, we see Gene watching a news conference about Barry’s arrest for the murder of Gene’s girlfriend. When Barry calls Gene from jail and tells him that despite what happened, he still loves Gene, Winkler’s demeanor is unaffected. “I found you,” he said to Barry. Gene then went to a reporter with the story and presented an impressive copy of the download. He also confronts Sally (Sarah Goldberg) about why he didn’t warn her that her roommate is a murderer. These scenes, plus Janice’s father’s determination to find out what happened to his son and Noho’s conclusion that Hank must kill Barry, promise that the show won’t end quietly.
Winkler, who won Best Supporting Actor in 2018, hates to see it end as much as fans of the Emmy-winning dark comedy. But he gets it.
“I’m so sorry. I believe it too.” [creators and executive producers] Bill [Hader] And Alec [Berg] You have taken it to its logical conclusion. How long can Barry keep going? He’s a deeply flawed and likable person,” says Winkler. “I miss people not only in front of the camera, but also behind the camera. You know, when you love your employees, they love you back. I mean they take care of you like you wouldn’t believe. And so I’m sorry.”
Of course, he’s been through this before, especially with Good daysIt aired for 11 seasons from 1974 to 1984 and with Arrested development. He appeared as fearless attorney Barry Zuckerkorn on the smart sitcom for 33 episodes from 2003 to 2005 during the show’s original run and a decade later in its revival.
“You work 16 hours a day with these guys,” says the 77-year-old. “You’re with them for years and years and years Good days I was with them all for 10 years! However, today they are all part of my family. Arrested development It was six. Barry It’s four. You depend on these people, because you do scenes with them. You have to listen to them. They should listen to you. It’s a big loss. It’s a big loss. I had to learn that everyone moves on. You’ll be friendly, you’ll be warm, but you won’t always stay connected.
of Good days The cast of the Garry Marshall-created sitcom has been reunited over the years in a world that looks very different from the TV it was when it first aired.
“The difference,” says Winkler, “is sometimes how the technology is built, the sheer number of sites you can have, but making the show, making it entertaining? It takes a great idea. It takes great people to bring that great. The idea to life, to translate the script and add their personality to the script.” A great cast of actors bringing them to life, that hasn’t changed.
