Night Court actor Harry Anderson found dead at 65

Night Court actor Harry Anderson died Monday morning in Asheville, N.C., the Asheville Police Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Anderson, 65, was found dead in his North Carolina home by police Monday morning. According to officials, no foul play is suspected.

Anderson starred as Judge Harry Stone on the longtime sitcom, which ran on NBC for nine seasons from 1984 to 1992. He played the boyish judge as a wise-cracking prankster who also was an amateur magician, like Anderson himself.

Anderson is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and his two children.

Police hadn't found the bodies of Devonte Hart and his adoptive sisters, 16-year-old Hannah Hart and 12-year-old Sierra. Her wife, Sarah Hart , had a significant amount of Benadryl in her system, as did two of the children, police said.

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.

Marsha Warfield, who came onto Night Court in 1986 as the show's third bailiff, Rosalind Russell, left a tearful video on her Facebook page filmed in the front seat of her auto after hearing the sad news. We miss you already. "Rest in peace, Harry". The interview is in my book Sick In The Head.

Charles, at the time, was producing Cheers and asked Anderson to guest-star on the show as con man Harry "The Hat" Gittes. "He was a one of a kind talent who made millions so happy", filmmaker Judd Apatow wrote. She said she would talk more later, "but for now, I'm devastated". It was a dream come true. He was just wonderful.

Here is how Anderson's fans remembered his career.
