Actor Ted Danson has been captivating audiences for over 20 years — ever since he ran a little bar called Cheers on the famous TV sitcom of the same name. This fall, the actor stars as an aging hotshot in need of a little spice in the new HBO series Bored to Death.

Danson's other TV credits include Becker and Damages, plus guest appearances on The Simpsons, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Fraiser.
