My Secret Life as a Ping-Pong Wizard Hank Zipzer Book 9 Henry Winkler and Lin OliverPenguin Canada ISBN 9780448437491What do you do when you discover you love something but most people do not understand it, or they think it is lame? Henry Winkler knows a thing or two about Hollywood, having spent nearly three decades enjoying success in the business. In 2003, he began writing a series of 10 children's novels with his partner Lin Oliver for Penguin Putnam entitled, Hank Zipzer: The World's Most Amazing Under-Achiever. In 2004, Winkler has been busy producing and acting along with continuing work on the Hank Zipzer series. In 1999, he received an Emmy nomination for outstanding actor for his appearance on ABC's The Practice and in 2000 starred in Down To You with Freddie Prinze, Jr.
In 1996 Winkler co-starred opposite Sandler in Disney's The Water Boy, which grossed over 70 million dollars in its first two weeks of release and earned him a Blockbuster Award nomination as Favorite Supporting Actor. Winkler served as Executive Producer for television's Dead Man's Gun (TNN), Sightings (Sci-Fi Channel) and the Disney series So Weird, starring Mackenzie Phillips, which was named one of the Top 10 New Children's Programs by TV Guide two years in a row. Fair Dinkum's first made-for-television movie, Scandal Sheet, starring Burt Lancaster, aired in January 1985 on ABC-TV.
Consistent with his long-standing concern for quality children's programming on television, Henry formed JZM Productions (1983) to create worthwhile projects geared for a young audience.
JZM's initial project was the animated one-hour special Happily Ever After for PBS' Wonderworks series.
JZM also produced the 1983 ABC After School Special, Run, Don't Walk; and the 1984 CBS Schoolbreak Special, All the Kids Do It, the latter of which was directed by Henry. Henry is most active, yet ironically least recognized, in the area of theatrical film production. The Sure Thing was followed by Young Sherlock Holmes.The Paramount Pictures film was developed by Monument Pictures and produced in association with Steven Spielberg's Amblin' Productions.
In spite of his already demanding schedule, Henry continues to add television feature film projects to his workload. With the Yale Repertory Company, he appeared in East Hampton, Long Island, in a summer of story theatre and received critical acclaim as the original Grosbard in Philip Roth's Defender of the Faith. Returning to New York, he worked in radio and did some 30 television commercials before starring in The Great American Dream Machine and Masquerade for National Educational Television. After signing to do his second feature film Crazy Joe, he moved to California in September, 1973. Henry's portrayal of "The Fonz" for 10 seasons (1974-84) made him one of the most recognized actors in the world. During the 1976-77 season, in addition to Happy Days, he also starred in the TV movie Katherine for ABC and the stage production of Room Service for the Kenely theatre circuit in the Midwest.
In 1977-78, Henry starred in the feature films Heroes and The One and Only, and in two specials: Richard Rodgers, in which he co-starred with Gene Kelly and Henry Winkler Meets William Shakespeare.
In 1986, Henry directed his first made-for-television movie, A Smokey Mountain Christmas, starring Dolly Parton.
In September 1988, Henry made his feature film directorial bow with the release of MGM's Memories of Me, starring Billy Crystal, Alan King and JoBeth Williams. In 1991, Henry stepped in front of the cameras again, for the first time in eight years, starring in Absolute Strangers, a MOW for CBS directed by Emmy award-winner Gil Cates.
As Henry became increasingly visible, he found that he could use his position to help others. While Henry's personal commitment to helping others is reward enough, his efforts have been recognized by a variety of prestigious organizations including B'nai B'rith ("Champion of Youth"), United Nations ("Peace Prize") and in 1988, Henry and his wife, Stacey (they were married May 5, 1978), were presented with Women in Film's Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award for their tireless efforts and devotion to the "improvement of the human condition." In May of 1995 they received the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Support Group Service's Helping Hand Award in recognition for all they have done for the children of Los Angeles and on June 29, 1996, Henry received the Chevallier de l'Ordre des Artes et Lettres, the French Government's highest honor.

Happy Days is history and the black leather jacket worn by "The Fonz" has hung in the Smithsonian since February 13th, 1980 and recently has been joined by "Fonzie's" lunch box. The books are inspired by Henry's struggle throughout his education due to his learning challenges. He was Executive Producer for Hollywood Squares with his partner Michael Levitt and Executive Producer on Wintuition for the Game Show Network. Previous to that, he made his return to the big screen in Wes Craven's Scream followed by three independent films: Punks, Dill Scallion and Ground Control with Kiefer Sutherland and Kelly McGillis. And, in 1984, Henry recalled his "Fonz" character when he hosted Strong Kids, Save Kids, an educational video cassette dealing with child abuse.
The JZM tag was derived from the initial of the first names of his three children: Jed, Zoe and Max.
The program, about a young girl coming to terms with her parents' divorce, was written by Bill Scott with Bill Melendez supervising the animation. All the Kids Do It, which dealt with teenage drunk driving, won the daytime Emmy for Best Children's Program that year. The critical and box office success of The Sure Thing, which was directed by Rob Reiner and starred newcomers John Cusack and Daphne Zuniga, changed that perception. His network television credits include The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, The Paul Sand Show and Rhoda.
He won two consecutive Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Comedy Series (1976 and 1977), and three Emmy nominations in the same category. In December 1979, he starred in ABC-TV's An American Christmas Carol, an adaptation of the Dickens classic, and in 1983 he starred in his fifth feature film, Nightshift, directed by ex- Happy Days star Ron Howard.
It was followed by Universal's Cop and a Half, starring Burt Reynolds, which was released in April 1993.
He says that had he not succeeded as an actor, he would have become a child psychologist because of his deep interest in working with children. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Stacey and their three children, Jed, Zoe and Max.

It's the beginning of the 5th grade and Hank has joined the soccer team, but he's not very good, and does not really enjoy it.
This certainly confirms the status of the long-running television series' lovable central character, portrayed by Henry, as an American pop-culture icon. Along with this, Henry appeared on FOX's highly acclaimed new series Arrested Development, on which he has a recurring role and had a successful appearance on a three-arc episode of NBC's Third Watch.


In 2001, the cast of The Dinner Party won the Outer Critics Circle Special Achievement Award for Best Ensemble. Henry served as on-camera host and executive producer of the ABC presentation, which went on to win the prestigious Humanitas Prize.
A network rerun in September 1988 proved equally successful when Scandal Sheet again trounced its competition. The 40-minute program, designed to teach parents and children basic skills for the prevention of child abuse and abduction, was distributed by Paramount Home Video. The one-hour special, originally scheduled as an ABC After School Special, was moved to prime time when the network saw the finished product -- only the second time that ABC has done so. Henry made his acting debut as Billy Budd in the eighth grade and played Wintergreen in Of Thee I Sing in the eleventh grade at McBurney School for Boys in New York City. He continued his education in advanced drama and was awarded a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale School of Drama. With friends, he put together Off the Wall, an evening of improvisations which played off-Broadway. Undaunted, the very next week he flew to Cincinnati's Playhouse in the Park, where he starred in Arthur Miller's, Incident at Vichy. He was also honored with a "star" on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located directly in front of the forecourt of Hollywood's Pantages Theatre.
In 1993, Henry co-starred with his good friend John Ritter in ABC's MOW The Only Way Out, and then in 1994 in the Fox series Monty. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.

They have appeared on several Best Seller lists including The Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review and Barnes and Noble.
Henry did voice-over work for an upcoming episode of King of the Hill, in which he will be playing himself. During his high school and college years, he studied in Lausanne, Switzerland and worked in a lumber mill in a small German town. That same year, Winkler launched Sightings, a one-hour series on the paranormal which was syndicated by Paramount. But when he tries to feel out his friends on the subject of Ping-Pong they leave the impression it is lame, and the school bully McKelty mocks it the most.
He was the voice of Norville the Bird on the Award Winning animated children's series Clifford: The Puppy Years, and appeared along side Jon Voight and Sigourney Weaver in the highly acclaimed film adaptation of the Newbery Award-winning book, Holes, released by Disney.
A Child is Missing, in which he starred, aired on CBS in 1995 and in 1996 he starred in National Lampoon's Dad's Week Off for Showtime. Land while Henry lives very much in the present as an actor, director, producer and now a best-selling author.
Then, in 1997, he co-starred with Rick Schroeder in ABC's Detention: Siege at Johnson High.
His father lets him know he does not think Ping-pong is a real sport and he is disappointed in Hank for letting his soccer team down by not following through on his commitment.The story comes to a head when at PS 87's Parade of Athletes, McKelty mocks a kindergarten kid about Ping-Pong and makes him cry. Little Sam Chin will try again if Hank will play with him, but to do so will be to admit his love for the sport.
