No matter what role he plays, I still have him type-casted in my head as Sam. I grew up watching Cheers, over and over and over.
I am catching up with the Bored to Death series and I still just look at him as an aging bartender.
While I've seen every episode of Cheers over and over (and still watch it even today occasionally) every time I see Ted Danson, I can not help but think "3 Men and a Baby". While I am going to be willing and give him a chance, I'm not sure if I can get the idea of out my head that He, Nick, & Brass will break out and sing "Good Night Sweetheart" anytime they get together.
