Harry Anderson, 'Night Court' star, dead at 65

Not Released

Harry Anderson, best known to audiences for his role as Judge Harry Stone on Night Court, died Monday at his home in Asheville, N.C. He was 65.

A statement from the Asheville Police Department said officers responded to a call from Anderson's home early Monday and found him dead. Authorities have stated to several publications that no foul play is suspected.

Harry starred on nearly 200 episodes of Night Court as Judge Harry Stone after first breaking out on Saturday Night Live in the early 1980s. In addition, fellow sitcom stars including Kirstie Alley (Cheers), Paul Reiser (Mad About You), and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) also posted tributes and shared stories about Harry Anderson on social media. He'd joined the Dante Magic Club in his teens and reportedly made money as a street magician in San Francisco when he was 17. The breakthrough role earned him three consecutive Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series between 1985 and 1987.

"I got into magic when I was a child". Anderson's other credits included guest shots on "Tales From the Crypt" and "Tanner 88", "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" and "The John Larroquette Show".

"'Cheers' was my first acting job, but it was basically the character I had developed on the street", he said. "That's how I made my living, hustling drinks in bars and quarters on the street". He would go on to star as Dave Barry in the TV series Dave's World, which ran from 1993 to 1997 for 98 episodes.

"I was never really an actor", he said. They opened the nightclub Oswald's Speakeasy, where he performed, as well as a magic and curiosity shop, Sideshow. "I can settle back and do what I want to do". "I don't understand why guys have that Don Knotts syndrome of having to be out there", he said. He moved from New Orleans to North Carolina after Hurricane Katrina tore into the former city. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Morgan.
