Tina Fey, Ted Danson Grill Each Other on ‘Cheers,’ ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘Mr. Mayor’

It was one of Ted Danson’s daughters who gave him perhaps the best perspective on his “Cheers” role, Sam Malone. “He was the reformed alcoholic in a bar,” Danson says of his ironic character. “He was always alone surrounded women one after the other, but always alone.

Tina Fey initially passed on her daughter Penelope for Girls5eva role before eventually casting her

"Our daughter Penelope ended up being in the show. There was a part for a 9-year-old, and I was like, 'If we don't let her audition for this, she's going to kill us,'" Fey said on the Today Show. Penelope put herself "on tape" but lost out on the role to another actress. "I can't let the boss' kid get the first part job they ever audition for," Fey joked. But the actress who was cast ended up dropping out due to the pandemic. "I was like, Penelope, you're up." Fey said. Girls5eva marked Penelope Richmond's second acting credit after making an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt cameo in 2015.

And while on a recent panel at the Tribeca Film Festival, the performer and writer acknowledged that we’re all in the process of wrestling with “terrible” pop culture moments once considered kosher.

Ted Danson tells Tina Fey why he joined Mr. Mayor: "I wanted to know what your comedy felt like to do"

“You are my boss and I am a sycophant at heart, but that is also the truth,” Danson said in a Variety conversation with Mr. Mayor co-creator Fey. “I wanted to know what it was like to be in you and (co-creator) Robert (Carlock’s) brain. I wanted to know what your comedy felt like to do.” Fey responded: “You know, the kid in me that grew up watching Cheers, that you just said, ‘I’m your boss,’ is preposterous."
