Harry Anderson on Night Court

'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Dead at 65

"I did a Saturday Night Live, just a guest spot", Anderson told the Bradenton Herald in 2015.

Anderson kept a relatively low profile in the 21st century, occasionally appearing as a guest star on various TV shows, including a cameo as himself on 30 Rock in 2008. At the club, he performed magic and comedy. In the very meta episode, Tracy Morgan's character, Tracy Jordan, hires the actors to reprise their roles from the show to shoot a more satisfying final episode that Night Court's famously disappointing series finale.

Neil Patrick Harris revealed that he recently bought magic memorabilia from Anderson, including a phone booth with the actor's name on it. "That's now I made my living, hustling drinks in bars and quarters on the street".

Anderson was nominated for three consecutive Emmy Awards in the mid-1980s for his portrayal of the eccentric Judge Harry Stone on "Night Court", IMDB says.

Following his role as lovable Judge Stone, Anderson took up the part of columnist Dave Barry in the CBS comedy Dave's World. The show ran for four seasons, from 1993 to 1997, before getting cancelled.

"I am richer than Davy Crockett", Anderson said in the story.

The man is said to have been wearing a black hoodie, black trousers , black sunglasses and a black bandana covering his face. Las Cruces police arrested one of the three men suspected of committing an armed robbery on a homeowner lateSunday evening.

A People magazine story in 2002 said Anderson disappeared from Hollywood and resurfaced as the owner of a New Orleans magic shop.

"I'm glad we tried to stay", he said, "but I don't want to be the person I will be if I stay here". "I don't understand why guys have that Don Knotts syndrome of having to be out there". He landed in California at 16 years old and from there found success as a comic magician, which opened the door to his acting career.

"This city hasn't evolved", Anderson told the New York Times. He told The New York Times at the time that the depression that gripped the city after the hurricane had depressed both his audience and his outlook on life.

Anderson and his family moved to Asheville in 2006.

The actor is survived by his wife and two children. There was no immediate word on funeral arrangements Monday night.
