The connection between Cheers and Always Sunny In Philadelphia is no longer relegated to the carnal passions of Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito. Now there’s this mash-up that runs the Always Sunny intro through iMovie’s Cheers filter. They should just keep using this one from now on.

It’s crazy enough to work, provided the Irish aren’t turned off by constant depictions of alcohol.

For instance, the Sam character, who was a retired baseball player in the American original, will now be a retired hurler, to which we will nod politely and smile, secretly praying that no one takes the time and effort to explain what hurling is.

The show will even get a new title in Teach Sean, with Sean being the aforementioned hurler. What exactly they teach him will be anyone’s guess. Love? Karate? Compassion for animals?

The show will air on Irish channel TG4. (Again, just smile and nod, and tell yourself that while this isn’t as awesome as the Pakistani version of Seinfeld, it’s still pretty cool.)

5 Atypical Ted Danson Roles http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-atypical-ted-danson-roles/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/5-atypical-ted-danson-roles/#comments Wed, 13 Jul 2011 20:08:49 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220032 War hero, murder victim, blackfaced minstrel: Ted Danson has played it all.

The post 5 Atypical Ted Danson Roles appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Today, it was announced that actor Ted Danson will be joining the cast of the hit crime drama CSI. Since he is typically associated with comedic roles (Cheers, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Three Men and a Baby, etc.), the news came as a bit of a shock. However, Danson has veered away from his comedic roots at various times throughout his career, taking on challenging and often bizarre roles. In honor of his latest attempt at career reinvention, we’ve put together this list of five atypical Ted Danson roles.

Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

Technically, taking a cameo role on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! isn’t really stepping away from comedy. That said, the show has about as much in common with traditional sitcoms as David Lynch has in common with Brett Ratner. So while Danson’s performance as “Little Danson Man” may still be comedic, it is certainly atypical.

Saving Private Ryan

When watching this gritty World War II drama for the first time, the last thing I expected to see was T.V.’s Sam Malone. But somewhere between all the dismembered limbs and dead krauts, Becker managed to pop up. Sure, the role was small, and it wasn’t exactly crucial to advancing the plot. But at the time, the image of a white-haired Ted Danson shooting Germans was so out of character that it’s managed to stick with me for all these years.

Ted Danson’s One-Man Minstrel Show

Of all Ted Danson’s bizarre performances, this might be the strangest. In 1993, the Cheers star performed a racially-charged monologue while wearing blackface at a Friar’s Club roast in honor of his then-girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg. The idea of Danson dating Goldberg is strange enough. But the idea of him dressed like a minstrel while dropping N-bombs is truly mind boggling. Clearly, Danson meant no real offense toward blacks. After all, it was a Friar’s Club roast, and the whole point of such an event is to be offensive. Goldberg, who is black, was in on the joke, and even helped him write his monologue. But even so, the performance went over about as well as a pedophile joke at a Catholic baptism. Actually, that gives me a great idea from my nephew’s christening.

Creepshow

Almost every episode of CSI involves a murder. The good news for Ted Danson is that he’s covered that ground before. In the 1982 horror film Creepshow, he played a character who was murdered in cold blood for sleeping with another man’s girlfriend. What’s even stranger is that the murderer was played by fellow funnyman Leslie Nielsen. Talk about atypical casting.

Gulliver’s Travels

The name Ted Danson isn’t usually associated with political satire. But in 1996, the actor starred in an adaptation of the Jonathan Swift classic, Gulliver’s Travels. The series was well received by critics, and went on to win five Emmy awards, including “Best Miniseries.” Compare that to the recent Jack Black adaptation, which went on to win the Jame Gumb 2011 “Most Annoying Movie I’ve Been Forced to Sit Through on an Airplane Award.” At any rate, we started this list with a tiny Ted Danson, so it’s only fitting that we end on that note, as well.

Apparently, Reality TV Hasn’t Been Cruel Enough To Kelsey Grammer http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/apparently-reality-tv-hasnt-been-cruel-enough-to-kelsey-grammer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/apparently-reality-tv-hasnt-been-cruel-enough-to-kelsey-grammer/#comments Tue, 25 Jan 2011 21:22:39 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=22211 Grammer has ushered in a new era for which he will be remembered for many poorly-hatched reality television shows.

Kelsey Grammer has decided that he isn’t content merely tarnishing his TV legacy, but would instead like to cram it full of C-4 explosive and detonate it in a densely populated area, possibly near lots of orphans. There was a time when he was fondly remembered as Frasier Crane on two of America’s most beloved sitcoms, “Cheers” and “Frasier”, but Grammer has ushered in a new era for which he will be remembered as the producer of several poorly-hatched reality television shows, a la Seinfeld. His new development company is explicitly only working on reality TV, so….(sigh)

Not content with his wife sullying his good name, he decided to take the reins himself, teaming up with Stella Bulochnikov-Stolper, the dead, dead soul responsible for “Paris Hilton‘s My New BFF”. Stolper was quoted as saying in regards to their development of new reality shows, ““I knew that Kelsey loved this space, and would love to pop some big shows.” While it’s not divulged exactly what they hope to “pop,” given Grammer’s freakishly large dome, I think there’s a natural synergy awaiting with the new Pac-Man reality show. I think that Kelsey Grammer as a big yellow dot is something the whole nation can get behind, and, let’s face it, is probably a lateral move after “Hank” andBack to You.” (A.V. Club)
