Cheers to Royal Pains for allowing two beloved TV faves chances to stretch.
USA's hit medical dramedy has cast the Fonz himself, Henry Winkler, as Eddie, the deadbeat dad of Hank (Mark Feuerstein) and Evan (Paulo Costanzo) Lawson. After cleaning out their bank account — a totally uncool move — the old man apparently redeemed himself, returning their money.
