FLAGSTAFF - Ted Danson will put all those years of work behind the fake "Cheers" bar to use behind a real bar this weekend.
Danson, who played Sam Malone in the hit comedy for 12 years, will be behind the bar and mingling with donors at the Museum of Northern Arizona on Saturday.
Danson's father, Edward B. "Ned" Danson, became the director of the museum in 1959 when Ted was 12, and the family lived in the homestead across the street from the museum.
"It is really a little jewel. It really needs to be supported. It's all private and it really does need the community, which includes all of Arizona, to support it. That's my hope," said the 55-year-old actor, who stars in the CBS sitcom "Becker."
The $75 per person event, which is designed to celebrate the museum's 75th anniversary, is sold out.
