 Cigar Aficionado | People Profile | Danny Devito
Danny DeVito was born in 1944 in the shore town of Neptune, New Jersey--hence the name of his production company--and raised in neighboring Asbury Park, the youngest of five children (two of whom died before he was born).
Douglas calls DeVito the "Prince of Darkness;" but perhaps because DeVito is so small, perhaps because his head is a bit large for his body, perhaps because there is almost always at least an undercurrent of humor in his behavior, DeVito seems vaguely cartoonish on the screen, even when he's being nasty and brutish.

 Danny DeVito at Hollywood.com
DeVito had acted in Jack Nicholson's "Goin' South" (1978), and Nicholson returned the favor in DeVito's "Hoffa" (1992) with the actor's portrayal of the Teamsters Union leader dwarfing both the director's and writer David Mamet's work.
DeVito has enjoyed notable box office successes in roles falling outside his traditional modus operandi, such as co-starring opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger with puppyish amiability in the silly comedy "Twins" (1988) and delivering a striking performance as the villainous Penguin in Tim Burton's surefire sequel, "Batman Returns" (1992).
However, ostensibly attempting to revel in the film's mean-spiritedness, DeVito's heavy-handed often cartoonishly violent approach to the material was off-putting and the script seemed about two years too late to throughly mine and anti-"Barney" sentiment.
