Here’s hoping he plays a guy named “Louie DePalma”

DeVito Makes ‘Friends’ for February Sweeps
LOS ANGELES ( – Danny DeVito will return to his former sitcom stomping ground in February with a guest appearance on “Friends.”
DeVito, who won an Emmy in 1981 for his work on “Taxi” and was nominated two other times, will play a past-his-prime male stripper at Phoebe’s (Lisa Kudrow) bachelorette party. As the show airs at 8 p.m. ET, it’s unlikely DeVito will show much skin.
In a separate story in the episode, Donny Osmond will play himself when Joey (Matt LeBlanc) does a stint as a celebrity guest on the game show “Pyramid,” which Osmond hosts.
An air date hasn’t been set, but the episode is targeted for the February sweeps period.
DeVito, who began his career in the early 1970s, has done little sitcom work since “Taxi” ended its run in 1983. He’s lent his voice to “The Simpsons” a few times and appeared on the pilot of CBS’ ill-fated “Bette” in 2000. More recently, he’s done guest shots on NBC’s “Ed” and ABC’s “Karen Sisco,” where he’s also an executive producer.
He directed the Ben Stiller-Drew Barrymore comedy “Duplex” and is a producer of the upcoming feature “Be Cool,” a sequel to “Get Shorty.”
