Veckans podd: Henry Winkler om Barry, Arrested Development & Fonzie

Henry Winkler is an absolute TV icon who shot to fame as Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli on the show Happy Days in 1974. With his motorcycle, a leather jacket and heart of gold – Fonzie became a household name and heartthrob. Winkler has continued to connect with new generations and has been sought out by some of the biggest TV creators. He has starred in Arrested Development and Parks and Recreation, the cult Scream movie series and several Adam Sandler films.

His latest show is the excellent HBO dark comedy Barry. The title character Barry is played by comedian, SNL alumni and show creator Bill Hader. Hader plays a hitman who is sick of his job and finds an artistic awakening while attending a Los Angeles theatre class. The class is lead by Gene Cousineau, a self-aggrandising Master Acting teacher and the author of the book Hit Your Mark and Say Your Lines, played with bravura by Henry Winkler. On this episode Winkler shares these many milestones, how being dyslexic shaped his career, the new season of Arrested Development, and much more. Barry can be seen on HBO and HBO Nordic.
