Eeeeeeeeey! Henry Winkler is heading to Broadway as a porn star.

The one-time The Fonz on Happy Days will star in David West Read's comedy The Performers alongside Cheyenne Jackson, who also plays an adult film actor.

Henry will portray Chuck Wood, a legend in the porn industry, who gets entangled in the romantic problems of two young couples.

The play is scheduled to open on 14 November at the Longacre Theatre. It will be directed by Evan Cabnet, who also directed Read's play The Dream Of The Burning Boy.

Henry was last on Broadway in 2000 in Neil Simon's The Dinner Party. Cheyenne's Broadway credits include the recent revival of Finian's Rainbow, All Shook Up and Xanadu.
