danny devitoWay to go Danny-o!  Whoever hasn't heard of Danny DeVito has been living in a plastic bubble all of their lives.  This guy has been in so many classic movies including One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Taxi, Batman Returns, and let's not forget his little cameo on Friends when he plays Phoebe's stripper.  Basically, he's part of that classic "Old Hollywood" category, and he will receive the Critics' Choice Television Icon Award at the Critics' Choice Television Awards, taking place on Monday, June 20th in Beverly Hills.

DeVito's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-star, Rob McElhenney, will be presenting him with the award which will be hosted by Cat Deeley.  The president of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association stated, "We are recognizing Danny for his contributions both in front of and behind the camera, but also off camera.  With Danny, we are able to pay homage to the past as well as celebrate the present, as his career has been remarkable for its continued relevance..."  So true - I mean when is a walking, talking penguin not relevant?

Other presenters for the night include Connie Britton, Elijah Wood, Adam Scott, Kaley Cuoco, Kevin Connolly, and Tyler Posey.
