Harry Anderson, star of Night Court, dies at 65

Night Court Harry Anderson Dead

His best-known role was playing magic-loving, eccentric Judge Harry T. Stone on the sitcom Night Court, which aired nine seasons on NBC from 1984 to 1992.

"This morning at 6:41 a.m. the Asheville Police Department responded to the home of actor Harry Anderson where he was found deceased", Asheville PD's Public Affairs officer Christina Hallingse told THR. In a statement to THR, the Asheville Police Department revealed that no foul play is suspected. Born in Rhode Island in 1952, Anderson moved to Los Angeles as a teen, and after graduating from Hollywood High School, he moved to San Francisco, where he reportedly made money as a street magician.

Judd Apatow paid tribute on Monday afternoon, tweeting: "I interviewed Harry Anderson when I was 15 years old and he was so kind, and frank and hilarious".

China hits USA sorghum with anti-dumping measure

He received three lead comedy actor Emmy nominations for the sitcom, which also featured an ensemble cast including John Larroquette, Markie Post, Richard Moll, Marsha Warfield and Charles Robinson. He also starred as adult version of Richie Tozier in ABC's miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's It. "I am richer than Davy Crockett", Mr. Anderson said. "I was a magician who fell into a part on 'Cheers'".

After "Night Court", he co-starred as columnist Dave Barry in the comedy "Dave's World", which ran for four seasons. He even owned a magic shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans, and in 2005 opened a nightclub in the Big Easy called Oswald's Speakeasy. Night Court leading man Harry Anderson has passed away. "I don't understand why guys have that Don Knotts syndrome of having to be out there", he said. He sold his home in Pasadena, California, and moved back to New Orleans, where he had lived in the 1970s. He often performed a one-man show - a mix of magic and humor - until Hurricane Katrina swept through.

His first marriage, to actress and magician Leslie Pollack, with whom he had two children, ended in divorce.
