Podcast of the week: “Henry Winkler” from Work in Progress. He sounds like such a lovely human being. He’s more than his iconic TV character. 😎
Met him about 10 years ago in Reno. Such a nice, generous, friendly & charismatic guy. Mrs Squid got a photo w him....she loves him too.
I’m so glad to hear that!!! You guys are lucky!
I have always thought Henry Winkler had to be the best actor ever.
Seeing Henry's off air persona against his Fonzi character one can only conclude that he must be the most amazing talent ever.
He is!!! Have you checked him out in Barry? He’s amazing.
I’ve heard it before. I was heartened by it.
Do you subscribe to the podcast? It’s so good!
No. Perhaps I should check it again?
Oh, it’s no biggie. I give a link out. 💩
I loved him in Water Boy!
He talked about Adam Sandler’s dress in the interview lol
It was funny
He’s so soft spoken
He really is, but the words always seem so thoughtful and kind.
So different from “The Fonz!”
Very much so!
He sure does hate Tom Hanks though. Makes me wonder about both of them.
Wait, why does he hate Tom Hanks?
I’ve never heard that before. I’m team Henry 💩
Something about a dog movie. Winkler was the original director. Hanks had him fired. They seem to have a feud thing going.
I read about it. I love Tom Hanks. Realized Winkler was a guy from a show about 4 actors traveling the world (William Shatner, Winkler, a bóxer and an American football player...all older guys). Don’t know about the dog movie. So, because I’m a Hanks fan, I remembered it.
Turner and Hooch?
I’m not sure. I just know it was a Tom Hanks dog movie. Winkler said he loved working with the dog. He was called in one day to the studio and said “you can take your stuff and go”. So, he was fired as director. He said “I loved that dog. Working with the dog was easy” (implying Hanks was not).
I thought “boy there are a lot of old hard feelings about a dog movie”
He really is a very nice man. I saw him on Inside the Actors’ Studio.
You are so lucky!! He seems wonderful.
