In the title sequence of the TV sitcom Becker, Dr. Becker (played by Ted Danson) walks up the crowded stairs from a metro station in New York. He turns around because apparently, he just walked past a man whose face he seems to recognize. The other man also turns around for a split second and to me, it seems fairly obvious that this man (with the blond hair) is no other than Boris Becker, the former German tennis player.
I have tried to google this left and right, but to no avail: Was this really Boris Bocker, or just a lookalike? Is there a backstory to the filming of this scene?
