Ted Danson The Good Place

He appeared as Michael, a Bad Place architect who runs the Good Place neighborhood in which Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason reside in the American fantasy comedy television series The Good Place.


Michael is fascinated by the insignificant aspects of human life, such as playing with paper clips or looking for one’s car keys. In the first-season finale, it is revealed that he has been duping the four humans all along and is actually a demon torturing them, despite the fact that he later teams up with and befriends them. “Michael” is a Hebrew name that means “like God.” The archangel Michael inspired the character, Michael.

Ted Danson Becker

He appeared as Dr. John Becker, a Harvard Medical School graduate who runs a neighborhood medical practice in the American sitcom television series Becker.


He is frequently irritated by things like a flickering street lamp, noisy neighbors, and garbage on TV. Becker is a pessimist and superstitious man who believes that almost everything brings him bad luck. Becker, who is constantly trying to quit smoking, hides a packet of cigarettes in the cash register of the diner where he hangs out in order to control his intake and keep his habit hidden from Margaret. Because an atheist cannot accept a God who allows bad things to happen, he does not rule out the possibility that God is torturing him for his lack of faith. He has been divorced twice and is extremely frugal.

Becker is a member of the political left, but he despises political correctness. Despite his gruff demeanor, Becker has moments of kindness and professionalism when dealing with his patients, accepting gifts from those who cannot pay. Initially, the fact that he is working in a run-down Bronx neighborhood is a source of contention, though he later claims that he turned down a research position at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore because the neighborhood is where he is most needed. Danson dyed his hair brown to more closely resemble his appearance as Sam Malone on Cheers, but with a very different, less charismatic style.
