Danny DeVito To Star In 'Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle' Sequel

Because every film is at least 40 percent better when Danny DeVito is involved -- the actor will be joining the blockbuster cast.

The beloved Always Sunny In Philadelphia actor will join existing cast members Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.

According to The Wrap, DeVito will have a mysterious "key role" in the second Jumanji reboot, which hasn't yet been revealed.

"The magic of Jumanji is who becomes who," Johnson told Variety of the decision to cast the Twins star.
