Heyyy! Fonzie To Play Porn Star on Broadway

Hold on to your leather, “Happy Days” fans: The Fonz may be coming to Broadway as a porn star.

That’s right — the onetime teen heartthrob Henry Winkler, now 65, is in negotiations to play an aging adult entertainment great in “Performers,” a new comedy by David West Road about the porn industry.

Winkler’s character is loosely based on Ron Jeremy, a…er…giant in the field. The hunky Cheyenne Jackson is slated to play opposite Winkler as an up-and-coming porn performer (read: hot young thing). Evan Cabret will direct the play, which will open in the fall. Robyn Goodman, no stranger to the lewd (she brought the world “Avenue Q”), has signed on as producer.
