Ted Danson’s Early Years

Edward Bridge Danson III, better known by his stage name Ted Danson, was born on December 29, 1947, in San Diego, California. His father was an archaeologist and the director of the Museum of Northern Arizona from 1959 to 1975. He grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona, with his older sister Jan. He went to a prep school in Connecticut called the Kent School. He was the best basketball player there. He went to Stanford University to finish his education, which is where he first became interested in acting. He then moved to Carnegie Mellon University because it had a better acting program. He got a Bachelor of Fine Arts in drama there in 1972.

Ted Danson’s Career

Danson’s first paid acting job on TV was as a contract player on the daytime soap opera “Somerset.” From 1975 to 1976, he played the character Tom Conway. Then, in 1977, he was cast as Dr. Mitchell Pierson on “The Doctors.” Also around this time, he was in a few commercials, most notably as the “Aramis man” for Estee Lauder’s Aramis fragrance. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, he continued to appear as a guest on many TV shows, such as “Laverne and Shirley,” “B.J. and the Bear,” “Family,” “Benson,” “Taxi,” “Magnum P.I.,” “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and “Tucker’s Witch.”

Then, in 1982, Danson got his big break when he was cast as Sam Malone, a womanising ex-baseball player, on the NBC sitcom “Cheers.” Even though the show’s ratings were low during its first season, it slowly got better, and by 1986, it was one of the most popular shows on TV. The show ran for a total of 11 seasons, and its last episode aired on May 30, 1993. Its end was seen by 80 million people, which at the time made it the second most-watched end in history. Danson was nominated eleven times in a row for an Emmy and nine times for a Golden Globe for his work on “Cheers.” He won two of each award.

After “Cheers” ended, Danson tried his hand at drama, which was different from his usual comedic roles. He starred in “Something About America,” for which he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie. He also had a small role in the short-lived CBS show “Ink” and the “Gulliver’s Travels” miniseries. Then, Danson starred in “Becker,” a CBS sitcom that was made by the same company that made “Cheers.” The show ran for 6 seasons, from 1998 to 2004, because it was so popular.

In the FX Network drama “Damages,” which ran for three seasons starting in 2007, Danson played the crooked billionaire Arthur Frobisher (although he was reduced to a recurring character in season 2). He has also been on “Bored to Death,” a comedy on HBO, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “CSI: Cyber,” “Fargo,” and “The Good Place,” a comedy on NBC with Kirsten Bell.

Danson has had a long and successful career in TV, but he has also sometimes acted in movies. Some of the movies he has been in are “The Onion Field” (1979) as Officer Ian Campbell, “Body Heat” (1981), “Creepshow” (1982), “Little Treasure” (1985), “Just Between Friends” (1986), “A Fine Mess” (1986), “Cousins” (1989) with Isabella Rossellini, “Three Men and a Baby” (1987) with Tom Selleck and Steven Guttenburg, and its sequel “Thre
