  • I’m no sexual siren. I see prettier girls than me in the grocery store every day.

‘Night Court’ star dies

night courtHollywood took to social media to mourn the death of Harry Anderson, a comedian, magician and an actor who was best known for his role on the 1984-93 NBC famous sitcom ‘Night Court’. Shortly after the news was announced, his co-stars from the show Marsha Warfield and Markie Post posted (‘I am devastated. I’ll talk about you later, Harry, but for now, I’m devastated’) their condolences on their official Twitter account.

“Oh, no! Aw man, I’m so sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family, friends, fans, and everyone who loved him. Rest in peace, Harry the Hat, you were my friend,” tweeted Warfield. She also posted a video on Facebook as well as a photo of the Night Court cast on Instagram.

Judd Apatow tweeted how he was interviewing Anderson when he was as a teenager and said he was “kind, frank and hilarious.” Others such as Howie Mandel, Cristela Alonzo, and Neil Patrick Harris shared memories of Anderson. Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick tweeted, “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I loved this guy even though I had never met him. Loved his comedy, his appearances on Saturday Night Live (when they still had stand-ups), and Night Court is one of my all-time favorite sitcoms. I hope he is in some magical afterlife doing card tricks with Mel Tormé. #RIPHarry”

Where are the “Night Court” celebrities now a day?

In 1984, one of the unlikeliest of places — a downtown municipal night court for petty crimes — became the setting for a TV show, and it turned into a pretty famous & hit. The irreverent sitcom Night Court ran for altogether nine seasons on NBC, starting as a mid-season replacement right after Cheers, and culminating with its final episode which aired May 31, 1992. Below, try to find out what the celebrity cast has been up to in last 25+ years since.

Marsha Warfield (Roz)

As the sometimes mean, always no-nonsense bailiff Roz Russell, Marsha Warfield kept extremely busy on television throughout the ’90s, appearing on everything from Empty Nest and Touched By an Angel to Veronica’s Closet. Since Warfield has retired from screen acting but has recently reemerged as a stand-up comedian on tour in Vegas and beyond.

Harry Anderson

Anderson, who got his start as a comedian and magician on Saturday Night Live and Cheers, presided over the antics of Night Court with a good-natured grin. The Mel Tormé-loving trickster never considered himself much of an actor. Aside from the occasional film role or appearance as a stand-up comedian, Anderson tried his hand opening a magic shop and comedy club of his own in New Orleans (since closed), and was living in Asheville, NC before his shocking death.

John Larroquette (Dan Fielding)

Playing the quintessential smarmy lawyer, Larroquette’s role on the famous series ‘Night Court’ really put him on the map — and won him an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series four times in a row. Since, the actor has continued to work consistently, mainly in TV vehicles such as The Librarians and Chuck. Next up, he stars in the film Camera Store, currently making the festival circuit.

Markie Post (Christine Sullivan)

In the tradition of Elaine on Seinfeld, Markie Post held it down in this male-dominated comedy as the well-meaning female public defender who was eternally at odds with Larroquette’s tasteless prosecutor Dan Fielding. Post, who made a mark on Night Court even though she only officially joined the series in its third season, has enjoyed more recent stints on television such as a recurring role as Bunny Fletcher on Chicago P.D., as well as various TV movies.

Richard Moll (Bull)

As the staunch but wacky bailiff Bull, Richard Moll regularly earned some of the biggest laughs on Night Court. The towering actor — he stands at 6-feet, 8-inches tall — has contributed his trademark gravelly voice to various video games and comic book projects, and has appeared in horror films like Ghost Shark and this year’s Slay Belles.

Charles Robinson (Mac)

Playing court clerk Mac Robinson, the cardigan-wearing straight man who deadpanned his way through many a joke at Judge Stone’s expense, Charles Robinson hasn’t slowed down since Night Court wrapped. Having guested on hit TV shows such as Charmed and My Name is Earl, the actor is set to appear in this summer’s The Guest Book, TBS’s highly anticipated new anthology series.
