Danny DeVito takes cardboard cut-out of fan to ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ set

The actor, who plays Frank Reynolds on the show, was repaying the favour after Allison Closs took a cut-out of DeVito to her prom

Danny DeVito has surprised one of his fans by taking a cardboard cut-out of her to the set of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

DeVito is currently filming the upcoming thirteenth season of the cult sitcom, which he stars in as Frank Reynolds.

DeVito’s decision to take a cardboard version of Allison Closs to the Always Sunny set was inspired by the headlines which greeted Closs after she took a cardboard cut-out of DeVito to her high school prom in Pennsylvania last month.

Speaking about her choice to ‘take’ DeVito to her prom, Closs jokingly said: “I couldn’t find myself a date in real life or with an actual human, so I bought one on Amazon.

“I have always loved Danny. I loved him on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I loved him in Hercules and Matilda. I just love him in every form he takes. Danny was there for me when I really needed him. He treats me the way a woman should be treated.”

Always Sunny star Rob McElhenney – who plays Mac on the show – posted a picture of DeVito posing with the cardboard Closs on Instagram yesterday (June 4), writing: “I heard you took cardboard Danny to Prom. What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy’s…”

Closs responded to DeVito repaying the favour with the following tweet:

Last month, Always Sunny star Charlie Day declared that he and his castmates are aiming to break the record for the longest-running live-action comedy series with the show.
