"I've always been a fan of Don's, and when I asked Cindy Williams about him, she loved the idea and said he was a wonderful guy and a great actor," said Tony Award-winning director Seth Greenleaf. "We had a conversation about the script and I knew he would make a fantastic Don. The HAPPY DAYS / LAVERNE & SHIRLEY connection was just coincidental but it's kind of sweet that they're playing a couple in this. We are really excited to have him join the cast."
