Episode 171 - Ted Danson

A self-described “contract player”, Ted Danson has been a staple on television for the past 40 years. Cheers. Becker. Bored to Death. Damages. Curb Your Enthusiasm. In that time he's been, at least for me, a stabilizing force. A welcomed, recurring presence. On the heels of The Good Place's final season, Danson takes this unusual moment of ours to slow down and reflect. We discuss how his love of basketball translated into his love of acting; his memories of making Body Heat; the enduring influence of James Burrows; his evolving relationship with Sam Malone and Cheers; and the long, winding journey to stop “pretending to be Ted and tell the truth.”
