Eva Amurri Martino and Domenick Lombardozzi have joined The Winklers, Henry Winkler's semi-autobiographical new sitcom. The show revolves around the real-life relationship between Henry and his son-in-law Rob Reinis. Amurri will play Henry's daughter Emily, who is described by Deadline as "spoiled" and "somewhat controlling." So just so we're clear: Henry Winkler's sitcom daughter, who is ostensibly modeled on his actual daughter, is "spoiled" and "somewhat controlling." Won't his real-life daughter find that insulting? It's not like you can elbow her like a jukebox and make her get over it, Henry. This is real life.
