Winkler gets animated for Adult Swim

The 64 year old actor has inked a deal with bosses at the Cartoon Network to play an overly nice hospital administrator on the late-night medical comedy.

Network bosses will launch 12 original episodes of the show on Sunday (22Aug10) – and series creator Rob Corddry, the star of Hot Tub Time Machine, is already heaping praise on his Happy Days idol.

He says, “At the very least it is one of the greatest honours of my life (to work with) Henry Winkler, and he does not disappoint.”
