Also known as Edward Bridge Danson III
American actor and producer

Danson was the star of the long-running TV sitcom Cheers, playing Sam Malone, for which he won two Emmys and two Golden Globes. His film credits include Jerry and Tom, Gulliver's Travels, Getting Even with Dad, Made in America, Three Men and a Little Lady, and Three Men and a Baby.

According to the Internet lists of famous adoptees and adoptive parents published by the NAIC, Danson is both an adoptee and an adoptive parent. But the North American Council on Adoptable Children's defunct list at http://www.cyfc.umn.edu/Adoptinfo/adoptionawareness.html included him only under their heading of famous adopters. He is not listed under either heading at http://www.adoption-isit4u.aoci.org/pages/info_7.html from The Adoption Option Committee of Minnesota. I have been unable to find independent confirmation of him as an adoptee, but http://us.imdb.com/AName?Danson,+Ted does confirm him as the adoptive parent, with his second wife, Casey Coates, of a daughter.
