Ten biggest celebrity USC football fans who cheer on the Trojans
Henry Winkler, the USC football sideline fixture
The Trojan Family is a real thing, and not just for people who went to USC for school. It draws in their family too.
That’s the case for Henry Winkler, who broke out in the 1970s as “The Fonz” on “Happy Days,” netting two Golden Globe awards. That role would be enough to make Winkler a cultural icon, but he’s gone on to play a dozen more memorable characters. He was bumbling lawyer Barry Zucherkorn in “Arrested Development,” Dr. Saperstein in “Parks and Recreation” and Coach Klein in “The Waterboy.”
Most recently Winkler has gained critical acclaim, including an Emmy, for his work as self-obsessed acting coach Gene Cousineau on HBO’s comedy series “Barry.”
All the while, Winkler has been a fixture on the sideline at Trojan games thanks in part to his son, Max, who went to film school at USC. He picked a great time for it too, graduating in 2006 during the height of the Pete Carroll era.
That’s not to say Winkler’s support for the Trojans was contingent only on his son’s attendance. He’s still tweeted about USC and still goes to games.
