Ted Danson is confident he will finally beat his former Cheers co-star Woody Harrelson at chess, thanks to his latest film role.

Danson is playing real-life chess expert DAVID McENULTY in forthcoming US TV movie KNIGHTS OF THE SOUTH BRONX, and he sneakily intends to enlist McEnulty's expertise in a bid to thrash his opponent Harrelson in an online game.

He says, "I tried to whoop Woody during the Cheers years because he could beat me at everything else.

"I'm going to play him over the internet, because he's in Hawaii, but David McEnulty will be sitting next to me."
