Alan Arkin already has an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award in his trophy collection, and he just added another amazing honor to his long list of accomplishments. The 85-year-old actor finally received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Arkin has been a part of Hollywood elite since the ‘60s when he starred in the movies The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! and The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. He revived his career with Oscar-winning turned in Little Miss Sunshine, and went on to star in movies Marley & Me and Argo before landing one of the lead roles on TV show The Kominsky Method.
Chuck Lorre, who created the Netflix series, joined Arkin and his family during the ceremony. His Little Miss Sunshine co-star Steve Carell also made an appearance and had nothing but words of praise for the veteran actor.
“There’s a danger to meeting your heroes. Rarely do they live up to the expectations you place upon them and Alan turned out to be much more than I could have imagined. I simply idolize him. His depth of talent is unprecedented. He is the actor I want to be,” said Carell during the ceremony.
