Batman Returns as Penguin (1992)
While you can agree Batman returns Not the best one in the series, Danny’s character Penguin was as wicked as he could get. Once you saw DeVito in this evil avatar, it was very difficult for a person to get it out of his mind. Penguin had some surprising physical similarities to an actual penguin and Danny seemed fit to play the role.

Matilda (1996) as Harold “Harry” Wormwood
Matilda One of the best works was by Danny DeVito. The actor co-starred with the film’s direction and turned the Ronald Dahl classic book to its full potential on the big screen. He wrote an essay on the role of Harold “Harry” Wormwood, one of Matilda’s formidable parents. She was paired with actress Rhea Perlman, DeVito’s real-life wife, and the two were able to really convince the audience from their acting about the house how horrible they were to the sweet and sympathetic Matilda.

Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) as Mini Me
It may be one of the shortest roles played by DeVito, but it is definitely one of the favorites among the audience. The third installment in the Austin Powers franchise – Austin Powers in Goldmember – featured a film revolving around Austin’s life. Danny DeVito essayed the role of Mini-Me, which was a big hit even though it was a cameo. DeVito is depicted in a bald avatar, screams smuts and firing from a machine gun and we will never be able to change that picture.
