Wizard World Philadelphia will be “where everybody knows your name” on Sunday, June 16, when the great Ted Danson, who starred as “Sam Malone” in the iconic series “Cheers” and is now in the fourth season in the lead role of “Michael” in the acclaimed NBC series “The Good Place” makes his first pop culture convention appearance at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City Philadelphia. Danson, a Golden Globe- and Emmy Award-winning actor known for an array of exceptional performances, will greet fans, sign autographs, pose for photo ops and conduct a Q&A panel during a busy day.

Danson was recently seen in the ninth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and also had a prominent role in the second season of FX’s critically acclaimed series “Fargo.” Other credits include CBS’ long-running “CSI” and “CSI: Cyber,” FX’s “Damages” (playing tycoon “Arthur Frobisher”) and CBS’ “Becker” – the latter two roles for which he was Golden Globe nominated.

In film, Danson can be seen in Hearts Beat Loud, a musical drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018. He has also appeared in several other high-profile projects, including the 1987 blockbuster hit Three Men and a Baby and its sequel, Three Men and a Little Lady.
