Winkler has enjoyed over four decades of success in Hollywood and continues to be in demand as an actor, producer, and director.
A 1973 audition in Los Angeles forever changed the life of the Yale School of Drama graduate when producer Garry Marshall and Tom Miller cast Winkler in the iconic role of Arthur Fonzarelli, aka “The Fonz,” in the TV series Happy Days. During his 10 years on the popular sitcom, he won two Golden Globe Awards, was nominated three times for an Emmy Award, and was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Both Fonzie’s famous leather jacket and his lunch box have resided in the Smithsonian Institute since 1980. Learn more about Henry Winkler.
