8 shows that would be improved if the lead actor was replaced with Danny DeVito

I’d fancy his chances in the Upside Down.

1. Pokémon

Ash or Pikachu could easily be swapped here.


This actually almost happened in one of the games, but because the world is cruel and unjust, the collaboration never came to fruition.


2. Stranger Things

Peace out Eleven.

3. Sex And The City


“Look, if life pushes you down you gotta push back! If you’ve been dealt a bunch of lemons, you’ve got to take those lemons and push them down someones throat until they see yellow! And if some punk ass kid humiliates you, you’ve got to do the only thing thats left to do!”

That’s a column I’d read TBH.

4. Teletubbies

In which Danny DeVito would play the Sun Baby.


5. Doctor Who

We’ll give Jodie Whittaker a chance, obvs. But we also wouldn’t mind seeing him take a spin in the Tardis.

6. Gilmore Girls

… With DeVito playing either Lorelai or Rory.

Or perhaps both at the same time?


Look, if him and Arnold Schwarzenegger can play twins, anything is possible.

7. The Good Place

Much more believable that Danny DeVito would accidentally be sent to The Good Place. Makes sense.

Or perhaps he could slot in to Ted Danson’s role as the hapless architect?


8. House Of Cards

Nothing but respect for MY president.
