Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })A character whose name is clearly taken from the actor/actress portraying them. This shows up in TV a lot in shows designed as a vehicle for an actor's fame. By lending their name to the fictional character, there's some familiarity created already. The most obvious way to spot this is to see if the title of the show incorporates the lead actor/actress' name, but not always. This seemed to hit its peak in the sitcoms of the late eighties and early nineties. A good majority of sitcoms were based on a stand up comedian's routine (Tim Allen, Roseanne Barr) and many of these comics already were developing fanbases. Creating the Danza was a way to leverage their fame as a comic into success as an actor.
Another common reason for doing this is that if an actor is famous enough, people will always refer to them by their real name even when discussing them as a fictional character (unless, of course, the character they are portraying is even more iconic, with the exception of said character being played by different actors and/or in multiple media). To avoid the annoyance or awkwardness of this character being constantly referred to as "[Famous name's] character", it's often best to just give them the same first name.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Sometimes this is used for child actors, to make things a little less confusing around the set. Also sometimes used for token ethnic minority characters, where it seemed that the program's staff were frightened to think up an original name and just used the name of the actor. In rare cases, it's an accident - the actor chosen to play the character just happened to share a name with the character.
From a directing point of view, using this trope also reduces the number of filming errors, since the actors all go by their real name (or at least, real first name), so the very real (and surprisingly common) mistake of accidentally addressing their colleagues by their real name instead of their character's name is ruled out, cutting down the need of retakes. This was the main advantage of the trope back in the day where film (which cannot be reused and have to be disposed or archived if a mistake was made) was the main recording medium, and has since been lessened with the advent of erasable magnetic media and later, digital. However, it does still save time and effort with the minimization of retakes.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })It's not a Danza if the character already has the name from an adaptation; in such a case the character is not being named for the actor.
Not to be confused with an actor or celebrity actually playing themselves. That's As Himself (if they're a main character) or Special Guest (if they show up for a single episode). How to differentiate? Is Bob the Actor playing Bob the Actor? Or does he just happen to be playing a character that's also named Bob? The second one is The Danza.
Compare Character as Himself, Adam Westing and Ink-Suit Actor. See also Name's the Same, and Author Avatar. If The Danza is the writer, then it may be Write Who You Know as well as Author Avatar.
Named for Tony Danza, whose frequent portrayal of people named Tony (see Taxi and Who's the Boss?) has made him the butt of a few jokes, for example, this one for April Fools Day from Teevee.org. See this article at IMDB for another list.

In many episodes of El Chapulín Colorado, the supporting cast is named after the actors who play them: therefore, we have Carlos Villagrán as Carlos, Ramón Valdés as Ramón, Rubén Aguirre as Rubén and so on. Roberto Gomez Bolaños (a.k.a. Chespirito) once explained he did this to allow the actors to form a bond with their characters (even though they were mostly just innocent bystanders). Conversely, in El Chavo del ocho, Doña Florinda, Don Ramón and Doña Nieves are respectively played by Florinda Meza, Ramón Valdés and Maria Antonieta de las Nieves.

Fred Rogers in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, although it's really more of an As Himself. This also applies to most of his supporting cast: Betty Aberlin (Lady Aberlin), Don Brockett (Chef Brockett), Bob Trow (Bob Dog/Robert Troll), Chuck Aber (Neighbor Aber), and so forth. These may not be As Himself examples, as Betty Aberlin has asserted that "Lady Aberlin" is not a representation of her real-life personality. Also, some of the actors would appear in character during the Make Believe segments, and out of character during the main part of the show. Initially, David Newell, who played Mr. McFeely, was the only regular actor on the show to avert this trope. His character's last name was actually Fred Rogers' middle name. However, later episodes revealed that Mr. McFeely's first name is David, dropping him into the trope as well.

In The Pretender, Andrea Parker plays female lead character Miss Parker, but this is apparently a genuine coincidence. On the other hand, her mooks are first-name Danzas (with no last name) to a man, apparently as an acknowledgement that it's not worth the effort of giving them real names.

In Detective Conan (AKA Case Closed in North America):
Several police officers were named after their voice actors. Detective Wataru Takagi is named after his voice actor, but other minor police officers bear the surnames of their respective voice actors, for example Isshin Chiba.
Conan's voice actor double-roles in a two-parter as herself, the lead singer for the band Two-Mix.
Shuichi Akai is named after both, Char Aznable from Mobile Suit Gundam and his voice actor Shuichi Ikeda. Ikeda eventually voices Akai.
Akai's opponent Tooru Amuro is named after both, Amuro Ray from Mobile Suit Gundam and his voice actor Toru Furuya. Furuya eventually voices Tooru Amuro. This name turns out to be a fake, and his real name is Rei Furuya, still named after both, Amuro Ray and Toru Furuya.

Harry Anderson as "Harry the Hat". Anderson had used "Harry the Hat" as a stage name for years before appearing on TV, when he was a stage magician and real-life con man, making it in some ways even more of a Danza than usual). Anderson also played Judge Harry Stone on Night Court.
Woody Harrelson as Woody Boyd looks like this, but it's a coincidence: the character was named Woody before Harrelson was cast.
Several background characters were named after their actors, such as Paul Wilson as Paul, Paul Vaughn as a different Paul, Thomas Babson as Tom, Phil Perlman as Phil, etc.
The cast joked about this trope in the opening sketch of the Disneyland 35th Anniversary Special, which Danza hosted.

A few Disney animated features have this trope as well, including:
In The Three Caballeros, Professor Holloway is voiced by Sterling Holloway, of course.
Peggy Lee as Peg from Lady and the Tramp.
Louis Prima as King Louie from The Jungle Book. Disney originally intended to cast Louis Armstrong for the role until they realized the Unfortunate Implications of casting a black man as an ape and chose Prima (who was Italian-American) instead, who coincidentally also fit this trope.
Scatman Crothers as Scat Cat from The Aristocats. The character was originally named Satchmo Cat and intended to be voiced by Louis Armstrong.
Susan Hegarty as the Rescue Lady from Lilo & Stitch. While her name is not verbally mentioned, it does appear on Lilo's adoption paper for Stitch.
Bolt provides a variation: Bolt himself is called Bolt in the Show Within a Show, and in a meta example, the movie is named Bolt while the Show Within a Show is also named Bolt.
An unusual and ingenious case is with marine Markowski in the Polish dub version of Wreck-It Ralph: Markowski is voiced by the lead singer of the legendary rock band named Perfect. The real name of the singer is Grzegorz Markowski!
Zootopia has Bonnie Hopps played by Bonnie Hunt.

Much of the movies in the Carry On... had characters that had the same name as the actors. The actor that got this the most was Sid James, who had over ten characters named "Sid". Carry On Camping, meanwhile, had the most with Sid Boggle, Joan Fussey, Bernard Lugg, Charles Muggins, Barbara, and Kenneth Soaper (the latter being confirmed by Word of God).

Ray Romano voices a character named Ray Magini in the episode "Don't Fear the Roofer".
John Waters does a character named John (though with no surname given) in the earlier episode "Homer's Phobia". (Amusingly, Homer befriends both of these characters in their respective appearances only to renounce those relationships.)
And Carice van Houten supplies the voice of Milhouse's cousin Annika Van Houten in "Let's Go Fly A Coot."
Lunchlady Doris was originally voiced by script supervisor Doris Grau. Grau also voiced Doris Grossman, Jay Sherman's makeup lady on The Critic.

The "Coupon: The Movie" sketch (during the scene with the movie execs) has David, Bob, Tom, Jill, Paul, and Jay (John Ennis is not referred to by name). The "Intervention" sketch, three seasons later, hasnote all of which are the same actors, save Tom and Jay for Becky, being sketch comedy David, Bob, John, Jill, Paul and Becky.

In The King of Comedy, Jerry Lewis plays a character named Jerry Langford. The character was named Robert Langford in the script, and Lewis suggested the change upon learning that they would be filming scenes in the streets of New York City; Lewis' character is supposed to be a celebrity in-universe, so if any passers-by recognized him and shouted "Jerry!" during a scene, they could just Throw It In! instead of having to do another take.

Notable aversion in the English dub of Tales of Vesperia, with the main character Yuri Lowell not being played by veteran Tales voice actor Yuri Lowenthal.
The actual voice actor, Troy Baker, did get some joke mileage out of this one though: "How bad is it when they start naming characters after voice actors? 'I wanna read for this guy, what's his name?' 'Er...Vic Migna.'"

In a roundabout way, the character Gordon's last name in Sesame Street was eventually revealed to be Robinson. This was long after Matt Robinson's term as the character, and this is thus more of a Mythology Gag (Gordon is currently played by Roscoe Orman). Miles Orman (who was also Roscoe Orman's real-life son) was Miles Robinson.

Digimon Adventure did this for some of the kids' parents' first names. The parents were probably named after their voice actors, as most of the parents' voices were the same as some of the kids or their Digimon and some of their names were All There in the Manual. Yuko Mizutani (Sora) as Yuko Yagami, Hiroaki Hirata (Narrator) as Hiroaki Ishida, Toshiko Fujita (Taichi) as Toshiko Takenouchi, Masami Kikuchi as Masami Izumi...
The dub of Digimon Adventure 02 renamed the Australian boy Dingo as "Derek", voiced by Derek Stephen Prince.

Hancock's Half Hour starred Tony Hancock as Anthony Aloysius St. John Hancock, Sid James as Sidney Balmoral James and Bill Kerr as William Montmorency Beaumont Kerr. The only other regular character was Griselda Pugh, played by Hattie (not Griselda) Jacques. Kenneth Williams played several bit-parts, none of them called Kenneth. The main characters' elaborate middle names are fictitious.

Every character in the Australian mockumentary series The Games is named for their actor — for example, Frank Woodley playing, well, Dr. Frank Woodley (who is "partially" a TV vet in the episode). This was lampshaded in the second season when the actor John Howard played a political representative pretending the be the Prime Minister; Brian remarks, "But that's illegal! He's not the prime minister!" to which John replies "He never said he was the prime minister; he said he was John Howard".
May it be pointed out for non-Australians reading this that the real-life PM at time of that episode's airing was named (by pure coincidence) John Howard.

Lucky Star
Minoru Shiraishi is voiced... by Minoru Shiraishi. It goes further than that, since Shiraishi plays himself (or a version of himself that's only slightly older than Akira) in the Lucky Channel segments... who plays a character named Minoru Shiraishi in the main program.
Gotouther-sama, the scary biker gang leader is voiced by Yuko Goto, who is normally typecast as moe characters. This is a homage to her real-life biker lifestyle.
Daisuke Ono is voiced by... Daisuke Ono. And Aya Hirano, predictably voiced by Aya Hirano (who also did Konata).
Patricia Martin's character has been confirmed to be inspired by Patricia Ja Lee. And then, in the English dub, was actually voiced by Patricia Ja Lee.
Clerk Sugita is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita.
Shiraishi also played an aspiring voice actor named Shiraishi in Kiddy GiRL-AND.

Plus, the books that spun off from the show give their full names in appropriate places, and their "brochure" in The Goodies File lists their real-life years and places of birth.

Games made by Skip Ltd. (such as Chibi-Robo! and Captain Rainbow) frequently feature a black-and-white dog named Tao, who is usually portrayed as somewhat lazy and often very hungry. Tao was the actual dog of Skip's creative director, looked exactly like his fictional counterparts, and... was somewhat lazy and often very hungry. (The real dog died in 2009, but the fictional version will live on in games forevermore.)

Many of the supporting cast on The Office (US) share first names with their characters, including Phyllis, Angela, and Oscar. Creed Bratton plays a fictionalized version of himself, so he skirts into As Himself territory.
The reason for some supporting officemates retaining first names is since many of them are Ascended Extras. Also, Michael screens a movie starring himself as Michael Scarn, an obvious Mary Sue Author Avatar.

Full Metal Panic! has a version that crosses with Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: The original light novels note that the AI in Kurz's Arm Slave is named "Yukari" and based off of a Japanese idol, complete with its voice being based off of samples of said idol. When the AI "appears" in The Second Raid, it's voiced by Yukari Tamura, implying that she was Kurz's inspiration.

Tracy Morgan plays Tracy Jordan in 30 Rock. Tracy Jordan is essentially an exaggerated, simple-minded caricature of Tracy Morgan.
Furthermore, it features Grizz Chapman as Grizz Griswold, one half of Tracy's loyal "entourage".
Tina Fey, who plays character Elizabeth ("Liz") Lemon, was born as Elizabeth Stamatina ("Tina") Fey.

Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain in Stella. Oddly, the show was adapted from their comedy act and short films where they're playing exaggerated versions of themselves (e.g. they're still comedians in an act named "Stella"), but on the TV show itself, they were usually unemployed and picked up different, bizarre moneymaking schemes in nearly every episode.

On the Swedish version of American Gladiators, called simply Gladiatorerna (The Gladiators) a female gladiator called Bjørk/Björk first appeared in the ninth season in the mid-2010s.

This was followed by Joey Russo on Blossom and Joe Roman on Brotherly Love (in which brothers Matt and Andy play Matt and Andy Roman). He ices the cake by playing himself in the 2008 horror/comedy Killer Pad. As of 2010, he is playing a character called Joe Longo on the sitcom Melissa & Joey, alongside Melissa Joan Hart.

In NewsRadio, Dave Nelson was played by Dave Foley and Joe Garelli was played by Joe Rogan. Phil Hartman's character Bill McNeal was intentionally named to be almost a Danza. In the episode "Chock", Dave's old a cappella singing group stops by, the other three members being named David, Bob, and Brian. They were played by Mr. Show alums David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, and Brian Posehn.

The Farndale Avenue plays are a series of supposedly amateur productions that always descend into (actually carefully choreographed) chaos. At least once in each play, the production's harried director, David, will emerge from backstage to try and get things back under control. In the original stagings, David was played by the actual director and co-writer David McGillivray.

The Angry Video Game Nerd, played by James Rolfe, can be seen typing "Jame" on the name entry screen of Winter Games before realizing there's a four-character limit, and Spider-man calls him James while making fun of him. For added fun, Rolfe plays another character named Board James, who may or may not be the Nerd's alter-ego, thus making both of them the same James (but still a different James from James Rolfe).

Metal Gear Solid has a coincidental example with Solid Snake's real name of "David", which happens to be the first name of his English voice actor, David Hayter. In reality, the name "David" was already decided during the Japanese voice recording, which was completed before the English voice actor for Snake was even chosen. It actually came from the main character in 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as Meryl Silverburgh's partner from Policenauts.

Saturday Night Live had a few of these in the early years, including Headmaster of the New York School for the Hard of Hearing, Garrett Morris. (The first six or seven years had a lot of first-name examples as well — the 'WASP Translator' sketch with Ray Sharkey centered around a couple named Charles and Ann. Guess which castmembers played them.) Later on, in a move of notable laziness, Chris Farley's character was referred to simply as "Farley."

Almost the entire cast of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist is named after their voice actor's first name with no last name given (Laura Silverman as Laura, Todd Barry as Todd). Even the guests that appear on the show are credited as "Dave as Dave Attell". There are only three exceptions to this rule: Dr. Jonathan Katz uses his full name, Benjamin Katz was named after his actor's last name (most likely because his first name is Jon and that would be confusing), and Stanley's voice actor is Will Le Bow.

Although the character existed long before the actress who played her, in an early film version of Anne of Green Gables, Anne Shirley was played by... Anne Shirley (which was the actress's stage name). The actress, née Dawn Evelyeen Paris, adopted the stage name as a consequence of being cast in the movie. She had been previously acting as Dawn O'Day.

Cecil Palmer of Welcome to Night Vale is voiced by Cecil Baldwin. Until episode 34, the general assumption was that character and actor shared the same surname as well. Amusingly enough, Baldwin didn't actually know the character's name at first (the credits just listed him as "The Voice of Night Vale", and it wasn't really important). A few episodes in the script finally revealed his name was Cecil, and Baldwin had to go check with the creator to find out whether or not NV-Cecil was meant to be someone other than himself.
It's pretty common on WTNV. Intern Maureen is played by Maureen Johnson, Kevin is played by Kevin R. Free, and Lauren Mallard is played by Lauren Sharp.

In Blue Is the Warmest Color:
The protagonist Clémentine is renamed Adèle after her actress Adèle Exarchopoulos because the director included scenes where the actress wasn't acting for the camera and was being called by name by the crew, feeling it was very natural and suited the movie.
Averted by Léa Seydoux. She refused to have her character's name be changed to her own name as one of the conditions she had for playing the part of Emma. Among these other conditions are: she will not smoke real cigarettes because she has quit smoking two years before, she will not have real sex on camera, and she will not wear her own clothes for the film. Apart from these, she said that she is ready to do anything that Kechiche will require her for any of the scenes.

Several minor characters on One Tree Hill were guilty of this: Bevin Prince portrayed the character of Bevin Mirskey and Antwon Tanner played Antwon "Skills" Taylor, both of whom were part of the show for several years. In a much smaller case, bartender/musician Grubbs was played by real-life musician Michael Grubbs.

Bizarre example: The characters of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 are all first-name Danzas. It had been originally intended for them to be full-name Danzas, carrying on the previous film's gimmick of "No, this is really happening to the actual people you see on film", but the director decided this was "dishonest" and changed their last names — he would have changed their first names too, but too much of the movie had already been filmed. The change was made so late in the day, however, that the new last names only appear in the credits, and we see the actor's last names on-screen briefly in a police report.

Hollyoaks:
In order to promote Summer Strallen taking over the lead role in The Sound of Music on the West End, its producer Andrew Lloyd Webber had her written into the show as a character called Summer Shaw. The character was then talent spotted by Lloyd Webber appearing as himself on the show.
Cameron Moore has twice been a Danza on Hollyoaks: first as the face of "Cameron", a guy India Longford met online (but who turns out to have been a fake profile created by Silas Blissett to lure and murder her), later as the character Cameron Campbell.

Chuck Campell plays Chuck the Gate Tech on Stargate Atlantis, though this may actually have been a mistake. The character was without a name for quite a while, and it's rumored that another actor dropped his name into a line. He is, however, later called Chuck again by another character. Notable in that fans had been calling him Chuck the Gate Tech (or, alternately, "Chucknician") for some time previous.

Now, if they could have gotten Hikaru Kotobuki from P-Model to (somehow) play the role... note For those who don't know, the members of Houkago Tea Time are all named after members of P-Model, while other notable cast members are named after members of The Pillows.

Paddy from Phoenix Nights is played by Patrick "Paddy" McGuinness, who when the show began had no acting experience and was given the role on the strength of being Peter Kay's good friend; ostensibly, his character shared his name because neither he nor Kay were confident that he would be able to react naturally to a different one.

The Three Stooges were almost always this in their films. The names were a bit of a change situation, but were their main professional ones. The Horowitz boys were Moses ('Moe'), Jerome (nicknamed 'Curly' for his hair after his then-current nickname 'Babe' was taken), and Samuel (their mother's attempts to say it ended up as 'Shemp', and it stuck). Louis Feinberg had already taken the name 'Larry Fine' before joining the act. Joe Besser was the only one who didn't have to change anything at all. Joseph Wardell had used 'Joe DeRita' well before meeting the Stooges. Emil Sitka would've been the only one to make a name out of whole cloth ('Harry'), but the act died (with Moe) before any films could be made. RARE exceptions include Woman Haters (the first short, and part of another lineup of films Columbia was doing; they had character names) and the rare time when they would play actual others (opposite themselves), especially in drag.

Louis Prima as King Louie from The Jungle Book. Disney originally intended to cast Louis Armstrong for the role until they realized the Unfortunate Implications of casting a black man as an ape and chose Prima (who was Italian-American) instead, who coincidentally also fit this trope.

Diane Martin, the first Miss America, in Battle Fever J. Both the character and the actress are called Diane Martin.

In Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan, all four heroes (Red changes midseason, actor's contract ran out) share a given name with their actors.
There's a weird aversion in Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger. There's the character Tetsu, whose full name is actually Tekkan Aira. However, Tetsu Inada is not Tetsu's actor, but voice acting Doggie Kruger instead.

Two of Station 51's firefighters in Emergency!, Marco Lopez and Mike Stoker, simply used the actor's name. Stoker, the driver of Engine 51, actually was an LA County firefighter at the time of filming (he retired in 1996), because the fire department wanted the engine on the show to be operated by a certified driver rather than risk an actor damaging it. They thought Marco's name just sounded like a firefighter's.

Almost a case in Legends of Tomorrow. Hawkgirl's real name is "Chay-Ara" (pronounced somewhere between "Shay-arra" and "Shee-arra"), and her actress has the similar first name "Ciara" (pronounced "See-arra"). Since Chay-Ara is a character from the comics, this is entirely a coincidence, presuming Ciara Renée wasn't hired for her name.

In the dub of Pokémon 3, Lisa Ortiz voices Lisa (Rin in the Japanese version). Could possibly have been named after her.
Since TP Ci took over the dubbing rights in season 9, James is voiced by James Carter Cathcart.
In Pokémon: Zoroark: Master of Illusions, Shoko Nakagawa voices a character named Proof. The Japanese word for proof is "shouko" (written with different kanji than Nakagawa's first name). According to Nakagawa's book, this was intentional.
Half this trope and half-Tuckerization, the Johto episode "Power Play!" (EP171) features a brief battle between Gary Oak and a Trainer from Cherrygrove City named Noboru. In the English dub, his voice is provided by one Alex Davis, the winner of a British competition at the time, and the character's dub name is shared with his VA.
It took nineteen seasons for the Latin Spanish dub to get a Danza, with character of the day Emilio being voiced by Emilio Treviño.

Babylon 5
Done retroactively with the Centauri Emperor (played by Turhan Bey) and Prime Minister (played by Malachi Throne). When they appeared in the episode "The Coming of Shadows", they were not named and only credited as "Emperor" and "Prime Minister". Later episodes called them "Emperor Turhan" and "Prime Minister Malachi".
In the episode "Learning Curve", Turhan Bey played a Minbari Ranger instructor named Turval, alongside another named Durhan played by Brian McDermott, both of whose names sound like variations on "Turhan".

My Dinner with Andre has Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory playing...well, Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory. However, the actors, who wrote the script, have repeatedly stated that the characters in the film are not representative of their real-life personalities.

The short-lived yet wildly popular Broadway musical [title of show]. In fact, the show takes it up a notch with it being "a musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical" (guess how many guys wrote this musical?) and the song "I Am Playing Me."

Appears in-universe in Haruhi Suzumiya when each of the named characters in the SOS Brigade's movie The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina: Episode 00 is named for the brigade members who play them, and has a roles appropriate to the actor's secret identity. (Also a mild case of My Nayme Is, since in Japanese the characters' names are in katakana, while the actors' names are in kanji/hiragana).

In The Muppets Robin Hood, Jancice/Willa Scarlet thinks the narrator is a voice in her head which she calls Jerry. The intent is presumably that he's this setting's version of the announcer from The Muppet Show, voiced by the late Jerry Nelson.

Night Court
Harry Anderson as Harry Stone is a subversion. According to series creator Reinhold Weege, the character was already called Harry, already a magician, and already a devoted Mel Torme fan before Anderson was cast.
Selma Diamond as Baliff Selma Hacker and her replacement Bailiff Florence Kleiner played by Florence Halop.
Charles Robinson shares the same last name as his character Mac Robinson.
One could also argue Yakov Smirnoff as Yakov Korplenko.
