​Danny DeVito Lookalike Needed As It’s Always Sunny Films In Ireland

A Danny DeVito lookalike is needed 'urgently' as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia films in Ireland - and the opportunity it paid, too.

The cult show is now filming its 15th series, having been renewed for another four back in December.

It follows the exploits of 'The Gang', a group of narcissistic friends who run the Paddy's Pub in South Philadelphia.

Alongside Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson, DeVito stars as Frank Reynolds, the legal father of Dennis and Dee who was introduced in the second season.

And for the next instalment, producers are in need of a 'Danny DeVito Double' to help with filming in Dublin, Ireland.

The job offer was placed on MovieExtras.ie, with the opportunity listed as: "Urgent - Danny DeVito Double needed for It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia."

To be considered, you must be a 4ft 5 male, of 'large' build with 41-inch waist.

You must also be available to film in Dublin on Sunday 29 August, when the shoot is taking place, and have proof of your right to work in Ireland if you were born outside of EU/EEA states.

The listing says: "Yes Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia are coming to Ireland! And we need a Danny DeVito Double. Shooting is this Sunday 29th Aug and the location is Dublin. Height: 4ft5, Large, Waist pant 41.

Over the past year or two, fans feared that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia could be drawing to an end, but those concerns were abated by FX CEO John Landgraf, who said there will be many more adventures to come.

He said: "As long as we can come to business terms that fit both our needs and they can continue to make episodes as good as they have been making, there is a good chance it may go past season 14."

In December 2020, the programme was then renewed for a total of four additional seasons, bringing it to a total of 18.

Rob McElhenney, co-creator and star of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, has also said that he wants to carry on making the show 'forever' and that the next two seasons are already being planned.

In a Q&A with NME, McElhenney was asked how long he thought the show, in which he stars alongside his wife Kaitlin Olson, could keep going.

He answered: "How many years do I have on this planet? I'll do it forever. If people keep watching it and we keep having fun, why would we ever stop? It's my dream job. I never understand why people leave shows. I don't. I never understand that.

"The show is what I dreamed of doing my entire life. I don't take it for granted. And if they keep paying me and the audience keeps watching it and I still love it... why would I ever stop?"
