Tony Danza became a true overnight celebrity thanks to his portrayal of the dimwitted, but good-natured cab driver Tony Banta on the iconic sitcom, Taxi (ABC/NBC, 1978-1983), often ranked as one of the best television comedies ever made. Right after Taxi ended, he starred in the sitcom, "Who's the Boss?" (ABC, 1984-1992), which ran for a long eight seasons and sat in Nielsen's Top 10 ratings for several seasons. He was nominated for an Emmy Award and four Golden Globe Awards. Danza starred in the film Cannonball Run II, and appeared in the Oscar-winning Crash (2005), and National Lampoon's Animal House.  He also earned respect for a lauded recurring role on The Practice (NBC, 1997-2004). And then on the Broadway stage had acclaimed dramatic performances in A View from the Bridge (1998) and The Iceman Cometh (1999), and as Max Bialystock in The Producers  (2006)
