Diminutive star Danny DeVito was awarded the 2,445th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday as he celebrated his 40th anniversary in show business. DeVito, 66, won an Emmy and a Golden Globe award for his role as sarcastic cab dispatcher Louie De Palma on the 1978 to 1982 ABC-TV sitcom Taxi, which also starred his wife of 28 years, Rhea Perlman. More recently, he starred on the FX Network sitcom It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. DeVito has also directed six feature films, including Hoffa, in which he co-starred opposite Jack Nicholson. He’ll next voice the title role in the animated feature The Lorax, based on the book by Dr. Seuss.
