He first found global fame with wise-cracking Boston bartender Sam Malone in the comedy series "Cheers," which earned him both Emmy and Golden Globe recognition.

More recently he has shown his range in projects as varied as legal drama "Damages" and biting satire "Curb Your Enthusiasm" among many others.

Away from work Danson has committed his time to the American Oceans Campaign which he co-founded in 1987, leading the charge to protect the world’s water environments and prevent over-fishing from wrecking marine habitats.

On Thursday Danson joins CTW to talk about the over-fishing crisis that now faces Earth, as well as highlighting "The End of The Line," a documentary he has narrated that highlights the dangers man now poses to his aquatic neighbors.

Post your questions to Danson below — and tell us just how far you would go for a cause you feel passionate about.
