Ted Danson Gathering 'Cheers,' 'Three Men and a Baby' Casts for Virtual Reunion
With an acting career that dates back to the 1970s, Ted Danson has a massive network of work friends. This Saturday, he's invited some of the most famous ones from such beloved projects as Cheers and Three Men and a Baby to reunite for the virtual fundraiser, Ted Danson and His Friends From Work.
Presented by HouseSeats.Live, the show will find Danson and his acting pals gathering to "reconnect, share memories, and tell stories from work," while raising money for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
From Cheers, Danson will be joined by Woody Harrelson, Rhea Perlman, George Wendt, Kelsey Grammer, Kirstie Alley, John Ratzenberger, Bebe Neuwirth and creators James Burrows, Glen Charles and Les Charles. Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg, Danson's co-stars in Leonard Nimoy's 1987 film Three Men and a Baby, will also reconnect.
From his latest comedy, The Good Place, Danson's work friends will include Kristen Bell, D'Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil and Mike Schur. He's also invited to the show his castmates from the upcoming Mr. Mayor, including Holly Hunter, Bobby Moynahan, Kyla Kennedy, Vella Lovell, Mike Cabellon, and creators Robert Carlock and Tina Fey.
The event will also feature a special appearance by Danson's wife, Mary Steenburgen along with Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas, as they will be coming together to discuss "secrets to a long-lasting, happy marriage."
