Brooklyn-born actor Tony Danza will be joining other bold-faced names such as Barbara Taylor Bradford, Dolly Lenz, John Catsimatidis, Ronald Perelman and Donald Trump on the board of NYC's Police Athletic League.

"I love our city and I love our city's kids," Danza said in a statement. Danza, 63, thanked Honorary PAL President and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton for giving him a chance to bring NYC's cops and kids "closer together."
