Probably. But that’s not a bad thing. In fact, I think DeVito’s ability to be so repugnant is a testament to his acting prowess.
I mean look at the guy throughout his run on It’s Always Sunny. Gross right? He lives in squalor, eats cat food and when he gets a chance to make a name for himself by creating a professional wrestler persona, decides on The Trashman.
And before anyone starts, yes I know writers hired by the show write the character. Doesn’t change the fact that he acts the shit out of it. I mean look at this scene from Batman and tell me he’s not fantastic at just acting gross. That’s quite the legacy to leave, being gross. I mean in this day and age, who actually remembers Taxi? Not me, shit I never even saw the damn show.
So here’s to you Mr. Devito.
Also here’s a video of him being birthed out of a couch.
