Show Up Drunk on The View, Get Your Own Booze Brand: DeVito's Limoncello

Danny DeVito showed up last November of The View still under the influence of multiple limoncellos enjoyed during a night out with fellow actor George Clooney. It made for a funny clip on a number of the entertainment television shows. Pushing any embarrassment aside, it apparently also spawned a desire by DeVito to get into the drinks business.

Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello is being marketed by Harbrew Imports. The lemon liqueur is scheduled to be on store shelves by August.

The announcement of the new brand came as final preparation were being made for the opening of DeVito South Beach, a new Italian restaurant in Miami. DeVito is opening the place with restaurateur David Manero. Others could soon follow in New York, West Hollywood, Las Vegas and Orlando, Fla.

I can honestly say I'd forgotten he existed. I last heard of him in my teens.

That's the amazing thing about Hollywood. Danny DeVito has been in more than 50 films and was listed in a staring part in 29 of them. Overall, his movies have grossed more than $1.8 billion.

Still, some believe his best part was in the TV comedy Taxi.
