Mike Hsu Talks With Henry Winkler About His New Book, "Alien Superstar", His Favorite Teacher At Emerson College, And How His Dyslexia Almost Kept Him From Being "The Fonz"

Tuesday, October 8th

Henry Winkler is probably best known for his role as Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli from "Happy Days" or more recently acting teacher Gene Cousineau on HBO's "Barry"(for which he won an Emmy).  He's also written 35 kid's books with his writing partner Lin Oliver.  His latest, "Alien Superstar" is about a teenage alien named Buddy who lands in Hollywood and gets the starring role in a sit-com.  We talk about that, his love of his time at Emerson College, and how he almost didn't get the part of "The Fonz" due to his dyslexia.
