Harrelson first endeared himself to millions of viewers as a member of the ensemble cast of NBC's long-running hit comedy, Cheers. For his work as the affable bartender 'Woody Boyd,' he won a Primetime Emmy in 1988 and was nominated four additional times during his eight-year run on the show. In 1999, he gained another Primetime Emmy nomination when he reprised the role in a guest appearance on the spin-off series Frasier. He later made a return to television with a recurring guest role on the hit NBC series, Will and Grace.
