In an interesting twist, Ed 'O' Neill was also nearly cast as Sam Malone on "Cheers".

Me too. I love Ed, but there is only one Sam Malone.

Fred Dryer of "Hunter" fame was also in the running for Sam.

I can't see anyone other than Ted in the role. Of course, Ed really was an athlete, just not a baseball player. He played football.

Also another little known fact ( yes, I said that on purpose) Sam Malone was originally supposed to be a football player, but once Ted was cast they changed it to baseball based on his physique.

well Sam Malone was a football player originally but because of Ted, they changed to baseball pitcher because he's tall and skinny.
