Henry Winkler: It Took 9 Years To Get Another Job After Being The Fonz

Emmy award-winning actor, writer, director, and producer Henry Winkler said that it took him almost 9 years to get another acting job after being "The Fonz" while on the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel In The Morning" show.

"When the Fonz ended part of my compensation was a deal with ABC that if I brought them a show that they liked I could get it on the air and the first show I brought them was MacGyver. I then started to produce during my downtime as an actor and 9 years later I was able to get acting jobs like Arrested Development, the movies with Adam Sandler, and now I do this incredible show called Barry," said Winkler.

Len asked Henry his thoughts on how he looks back on being The Fonz.

"I loved played the Fonz and he is very much apart of me," said Winkler.
