CSI Cheers Up With Ted Danson

Ted Danson, Marg Helgenberger

It's hard to imagine Sam Malone from Cheers needing a maggot wrangler. "I've never seen anything like it," Ted Danson says. Even with silver hair, the Emmy-winning actor looks like a kid who just pulled apart his first earthworm. "You can tell how long a human body has been decomposing by the size of the bugs crawling inside!" And the wrangler's got every variety. "It's incredible, until you think, 'Oh, God. We're talking about dead people.'"

Larry David Discusses Curb's Boundaries

Larry David

It's no secret that Larry David is said to have a prickly personality — he's managed to parlay that reputation into HBO's longest-running series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, which hilariously parlays that persona to its "Heart-of-Darkness" extremes. Some interviewers use their profiles of him to either complain or marvel over his tetchiness.

David was polite, friendly even, when I interviewed him for TV Guide Magazine's current cover story about Curb Your Enthusiasm's premiere on the TV Guide Network, as well as the debut of a new bonus series, Curb: The Discussion, which offers celebrity panelists analyzing Larry's eccentric behavior. We met in his office in Santa Monica — there's a putting green in the hall leading to his office, and another inside it. He asked me if I'd mind if he swung a golf club during the interview, but only did it a couple of times before sitting and getting down to business.

His office has a faux-poster advertising his appearance in The Producers (Curb's Season 4 storyline), some baseball-stadium photos, and a gigantic print featuring a clown alongside the legend, "Jokes that injure others, waste time, hurt records, are never jokes. Let's think twice." (This piece of art has appeared, briefly, on the show.) And though he was resolute in his refusal to discuss plot points in Curb's upcoming eighth season (which will air on HBO in 2011), a few out-of-context plot points on the white board in his office read: ... read more
