Look: The Children of "Cheers" Cast Members Are Actors, Too

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | March 25, 2013 | Comments ()


Ted Danson's daughter, Kate Danson, is set to appear on an April episode of "CSI."


Kelsey Grammer's daughter, Spencer Grammer, has booked the female lead opposite Blair Underwood in NBC's drama pilot "Ironside," a reboot of the 1967 series about a tough, sexy and acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting who is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases. She was previously on "Greek."


Juliana Long Tyson, the daughter of Shelly Long, is in a web series, "FML" and is otherwise pursuing other acting opportunities.


Lillie Price Stevenson and William True Stevenson, the children of Kirstie Alley, were both in Alley's reality show, "Kirstie Alley's Big Life."


Woody Harrelson's daughter, Deni, played Juliet in her high school's performance of "Romeo and Juliet."


Rhea Perlman's daughter, Lucy Devito, is a working actress who has worked as a recurring character in "Melissa and Joey," and was in Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk with Me, as well as Leaves of Grass with Ed Norton. She has appeared in three different episodes as three different characters in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" with her father, Danny DeVito.


George Wendt has three children, none of whom are in the business, but his nephew does well in the industry. His name is Jason Sudeikis. You may have heard of him.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Dee

    Kelsey Grammer has another daughter who's an actress; her name is Greer Grammer, and she's on MTV's Awkward (which is actually a great show, by the way).

  • Kballs

    William True Stevenson is a douche. I am judging him on this one picture. I have never seen the boy move or speak but can see that he's a poser and I hate him.

    In other news, is it just me or does the guy in that Romeo and Juliet picture look more like Woody Harrelson's kid than the girl?

  • tangocharlie

    Spencer Grammer was wonderful on "Greek". I love that show with a passion that should bother me, but I loved the love triangle and Clark Duke and how silly and cute the whole series was. Well worth a revisit on Netflix.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    That show was ridiculously fun. I'm not even sure how to explain it to people, because there is not any kind of objective, empirical argument for it. At first, it doesn't quite make any sense that it should be so enjoyable, but you give it a few episodes and you're just freaking stuck.

  • FireLizardQueen

    Just started watching it a few weeks ago and I'm already in season 4. Surprisingly adorable show!

  • "Lillie Price Stevenson and William True Stevenson, the children of
    Kirstie Alley, were both in Alley’s reality show, “Kirstie Alley’s Big

    "Woody Harrelson’s daughter, Deni, played Juliet in her high school’s performance of “Romeo and Juliet.'"

    I don't know if either of those really counts as far as 'being an actor' goes. I think you might be reaching there.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Oh come on, guys, if Dustin stopped "reaching", there'd never be another SRL.

  • How in the HELL is Lucy DeVito so pretty?!?!?

  • True_Blue

    Color me shocked too. I love Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, but lookers they ain't. Obviously Lucy won the jackpot.

  • Sean

    That was my immediate reaction. "How did Danny and Rhea produce an attractive offspring? What freakish genetic mutation caused that to happen?"

  • badkittyuno

    Wow, how cute is Lucy Devito?!?

  • Right?!?! Look at her and just compare her to Bruce Willis and Demi's unfortunate looking offspring.

  • poopnado

    Yeah it's like some weird math equation. Gorgeous + Gorgeous = weird, Weird + Weird = Gorgeous. GO FIGURE.

  • dizzylucy

    That's Kelsey Grammer's daughter? I think she might be older than his current wife.

  • I'm a playwright who works with Lucy Devito on the regular and can confirm that she is hilarious, sweet and talented. And tiny. Super tiny.

  • ,

    Well, she WAS produced by dwarves.

    And thank you, DR, for avoiding the "acting genes" cliche, which I loathe.

  • Kballs

    I recognized her immediately from It's Always Sunny. Funny lady.

  • Are you kidding me?! Sudeikis gets to hear Olivia Wilde say "Norm!" on a regular basis?! I officially give up.

  • TheGreatUnstainer

    Kate Danson was also a member of the Evil League of Evil in Dr Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog.

  • BWeaves

    OOOO! Which one was she?

    Ak, OK, Tie-die.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Colour me flabbergasted. Attempting to become the heir to a lucrative limoncello empire just got substantially (and surprisingly) more palatable.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I will buy your product.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    a) Don't call Alley's kids actors. Being in a reality show doesn't make you an actor, it just makes you an existor. (sidebar: if I saw my son turning into as a big a douche as her son appears to be, I would ship him off to bootcamp or something.
    b) Makes perfect sense that Long's daughter is the one "starring in a webseries" as opposed to the CW or something - Long was who I thought of on the "tv actors who couldn't hack it on the big screen." She made some out and out terrible films. Though I do ironically love Outrageous Fortune (and considered it a warning)
    c) mini-Devito is so cute!

  • e jerry powell

    I prefer to think of them as Parker Stevenson's kids anyway, because Kirstie Alley has gotten way too obnoxious since the end of "Veronica's Closet."

  • Jill

    Agree, that Lucy DeVito (awesome name) is the prettiest possible combination of her two parents. She is a cute girl.
    And let us not forget that in one of those IASIP episodes she played a waitress that Frank leered at. I think he even licked his lips. It was the grossest, funniest inside joke I've ever seen on that show.
    Harrelson's daughter must go to some swanky Cali school b/c the Beavercreek ,OH high school I went to never had cast pics that nice. Of course, we were also the fighting Beavers, so that isn't the only thing that was probably different.

  • Kballs

    Mmm, fighting beavers . . .

  • Uriah_Creep

    Beavers should make love, not war.
