Ted Danson Fakes It Till He Makes It

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ted Danson is no rock star – or that’s what he learned while filming an episode of his new show Help Me Help You.

The episode featured Danson’s character playing bass with his fictional band Pink Freud. The actor admits he only picked that instrument because he thought “it would be the easiest one to fake.”

Still, Danson didn’t want the camera crew to get any close ups of his fingers during filming because he “messed up a few times” and didn’t want the audience to catch on.

Instead, he hid behind the other band members, hoping no one would notice his lack of talent.

Danson admits his dreams of being a rock star are officially dead after his brief stint on the show.

As he puts it, “I don’t know how these older rock stars do it – I was exhausted after five minutes of pretending to rock.”

He better start working out because there are talks to bring the band back on future episodes.

Help Me Help You airs Tuesdays on ABC.
