Danny DeVito will be feted at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival with its Crystal Globe nod for contribution to world cinema.
He will also introduce the fest’s competition screening of director Jake Paltrow’s comedy “The Good Night,” in which DeVito co-stars with Gwyneth Paltrow, Penelope Cruz, Martin Freeman and Simon Pegg.
DeVito, known for his versatility as an actor, director and producer, will be back on the smallscreen later this summer when the offbeat “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” returns for its third season on FX. His recent feature acting credits include this year’s “Reno 911!: Miami,” which he also produced, and “Nobel Son.” Upcoming feature projects include Hart Bochner’s “One Part Sugar.”
The Karlovy Vary Film Festival unspools June 29-July 7 at the resort city in the Czech Republic. Daily Variety editor-in-chief Peter Bart heads this year’s grand jury at the fest, which will present 220 films from around the world.
