'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Dead At 65

Police officials confirmed that actor Harry Anderson died at a home in Asheville, N.C. Monday morning.

Asheville Police Department responded to Anderson's home and found him dead at 6:41 a.m., Public Affairs officer Christina Hallingse told The Hollywood Reporter. While no cause has been announced, foul play is not suspected, according to police.

Anderson was born on October 14, 1952, in Newport, Rhode Island. He later joined the Dante Magic Club and frequented the Magic Castle in Los Angeles.

On "Night Court", Anderson played Judge Harry T. Stone, a young jurist who professed his love for singer Mel Torme, actress Jean Harlow, magic tricks and his collection of art-deco ties.

Ultimately, Anderson represents many different things to different people, but how we picture the character at the moment is as a product of very much a gone generation where comedies dominated the schedule and there were few actors bigger than sitcom stars.

Anderson made multiple appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Saturday Night Live, before landing a recurring role on Cheers as a grifter named Harry the Hat.

Here's everything you need to know about him! "I never auditioned for anything". They named the character Harry so I'd keep in mind to react when someone said my name.

He went on to reunite with Larroquette with a guest-starring role in The John Larroquette Show in 1996.
