The “Night Court” cast has been “ravaged” by Anderson’s death

John Larroquette summarized his feelings for the loss of fellow nightclub star Harry Anderson in one word on Monday.

“Heartsick”, wrote Larroquette. Late at night, he added: “He was evil, he was evil, he had a big laugh, he had a big heart, he delighted in a game of prestige especially when he made someone jump and proclaimed: how the hell did you do it? hamster like nobody I’ve ever known. ”


Anderson, 65, was found dead in his North Carolina home by police on Monday morning. The loss of the actor who played the good-natured judge Harry Stone, from 1984 to 1992, brought out tributes from former cast members and stars.

Marsha Warfield, who entered the Night Court in 1986 when the third bailiff of the event, Rosalind Russell, left a teary video on her Facebook page filmed in the front seat of her car after hearing the sad news.

“I did not know I would be that emotional or I would not have started this video,” Warfield said, barely holding back his tears.

“Harry was a good man, a good friend, he was good to me when I got on the Night Court,” said Warfield. “Harry was the first to contact me and offer advice and help I needed and I needed a lot at that time.”

Warfield said he was about to go home and try to “process” the passage.

“I hope his family is comforted to know that he was so loved and so talented,” he said in closing. “I’ll miss you, Harry, Harry hat, rest in peace.”

Markie Post, who played Christine Sullivan in the Night Court, failed to put together a tribute because it was too emotional. He said he would talk later, “but for now I am devastated”.


Neil Patrick Harris was “stunned” by the death of fellow wizard Anderson, who worked at the Magic Castle in Los Angeles. Harris called it “one of my growing comedies and magical inspirations”.

“The world has lost a truly gifted actor and wizard: Harry Anderson,” wrote the illusionist David Copperfield. “Popular for his role in the Night Court, Harry has also inspired generations of magicians with his unique style.”

NBC, which aired Night Court, wrote on Twitter: “We’ll miss you, Harry Anderson The honorable judge Harry Stone is forever in our hearts.”

“I remember driving with NJ for a $ 40 / night concert with him before he became a great star,” recalled Mad About You, Paul Reiser, adding, “Nobody does it AFTER I’m a big star. of the best guys, a kind soul, we will miss RIP’s friend. ”

The comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who said he was a guest star in Night Court several times “since”, wrote “Ran inside him in New York not long ago, always friendly, always fun.”

Producer Judd Apatow wrote about being 15 and interviewing star Anderson.

“He was so kind, frank and funny,” Apatow wrote. “He was a unique talent that made millions so happy.”
