Ted Danson - Cheers Cast Once Played Hooky And Got High

Ted Danson and Woody Harrelson once skipped work for a day on the set of Cheers to get high.

The actors called in sick and headed to the beach to go boating off the coast of California with their co-stars George Wendt and John Ratzenberger.

Danson tells Gq magazine, "The guys were just (like), 'Let's play hooky.' We'd never done anything wrong before. John had a boat, so we met at Marina del Rey at 8am. We all called in sick."

However, Danson and Harrelson quickly regretted their decision to get high on marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms as a hurricane moved in and put them in harm's way.

He adds, "Woody and I were already stoned, and Woody said, 'You want to try some mushrooms?' I'd never had them, so I'm handed this bag and I took a fistful.

"On our way to Catalina (island), we hit the tail end of a hurricane, and even people who were sober were getting sick. Woody and I thought we were going to die for three hours. I sat next to George, and every sixty seconds or so he'd poke me and go 'Breathe' and I'd come back to life."
