Danson is TV royalty. After playing the iconic character of Sam Malone on "Cheers," he reinvented himself multiple times, playing everything from an egomaniac billionaire on "Damages" to a misanthropic doctor on "Becker" to himself on "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Apart from his role in "Three Men and a Baby" in the 1980s, however, he has been locked out of the movie industry. For some reason, viewers simply don't want to see Ted Danson in films. Fortunately for him, they still want to see him on TV. He is now enjoying a successful stint as D.B. Russell on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." -Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
