I would watch many seasons of Donald Glover and Danny Pudi as Lando and Han in the Dreamatorium.

Pass.

I disagree. He's basically visual herpes for me. Maybe herpes + crabs. Not fatal, but something you want to stay away from.

It's amusing to think that of all the actors to come out of Cheers he was the most successful. Especially given the character he played.

How are you measuring success? Kirstie, Ted, and Kelsey have all done pretty well.

The only time he works for me is when he's playing a drunk degenerate and that's because it's typecasting.

This and the fact he has been in several movies that are cultural touchstones. White Man Can't Jump, Natural Born Killers, and The People vs. Larry Flint to name a few. He wins it in a walk really.

I find the kinds of characters Ted Danson plays nowadays a pretty hilarious contrast with Cheers.

The only thing I've seen him in since Knights of the South Bronx is a Smirnoff commercial.

Team Sandy. I will avoid anything with Woody Harrelson in it (except Cheers, he doesn't bug me there.)
I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

I tolerated him for the Hunger Games, mostly because his parts were brief and cinema verité.

Harrelson on top of being another Disney Star Wars with huge stinker rumors swirling around it already? I'll catch it on Netflix, if at all.

Kingpin, A Scanner Darkly, No Country for Old Men, Zombieland, and True Detective all benefitted from his presence. I recall him being good in Transsiberian, too, although that one is a bit hazy.
