How Danny DeVito Almost Died On Set of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Despite being 71-years-old, Danny DeVito has no problems with doing his own stunts on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. However, he may be changing his tune pretty soon, as co-star Charlie Day revealed one scene in Season 11 almost killed him. During an appearance on Conan on Tuesday evening, Day explained:
“We did an underwater sequence, and Danny’s incredibly buoyant, like a buoy. It was hard to get him down, so we really had to weigh him down to get the shot where we’re all holding hands.”
So we've got Danny DeVito underwater and weighted. Ok, already sounding pretty dangerous. Day continued:
“And when the shot was over and we were all trying to get back to the surface for air, we all quickly got through the water but because we weighed him down, he sort of got halfway and was going nowhere. And that look of panic in his eyes of like, ‘This is the end, these guys killed me.'”
As you can imagine, DeVito wasn't too happy with the situation and immediately left the set after returning safely.
“He went straight home. He was like, ‘Goodbye, that’s the end of filming for today.’ I don’t blame him.”
