Ted Danson as "D.B. Russel" in "CSI: Vegas"

Fans love Ted Danson as D.B. Russell in the hit criminal investigation series CSI: Vegas. Although he is known for his trademark white hair and funky glasses nowadays, he wasn't always a silver fox. 

You'd never recognize a young Ted Danson! He used to be a real sight for sore eyes, with thick, brown hair and no glasses. One thing that has remained constant though is his acting talent, and he has a CV to prove it!
