I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Ted Danson

Actor Ted Danson. I nearly decided to scrap this feature actor article and write a much larger article titled Three Dansons, which would document the three incredibly different television characters Sam Malone (Cheers), Dr. John Becker (Becker), and George Christopher (Bored to Death). Maybe I'll still write that article some day (either that or Three Jokers: Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill and Heath Ledger), but for now I find it important to note that there are more than three Dansons. There's Ted Danson as himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm. There's Ted Danson the movie actor (3 Men and a Baby). There's Ted Danson the cardboard cutout that's commonly mistaken for a ghost (3 Men and a Baby). There's Tiny Danson. There's Ted Danson the guy who made a fool out of himself while dating Whoopie Goldberg. I want to celebrate all of the Dansons right now, especially George Christopher from Bored to Death.
