Fans who still remember Ron Howard as Opie from The Andy Griffith Show
and Richie Cunningham from Happy Days
had a big surprise when Ron collaborated with Andy Griffith and Henry Winkler in a video clip on FunnyorDie.com. During the 2008 presidential campaign season, Ron, Andy and Henry made viewers laugh while urging them to get out and vote. "It was an endorsement for Barack Obama, and it's something I'd never publicly done before as a celebrity," he says. "I'm proud to have done it, and I'm thrilled as an American. I'm so excited about the possibilities of an Obama presidency. It's going to be great."
