Anderson was best known for his role as Judge Harry Stone on “Night Court.”

Actor Harry Anderson, best known for his portrayal of Judge Harry Stone in the hit sitcom Night Court has died at his North Carolina home, police said. The statement said foul play is not suspected.

His time on Cheers eventually led Anderson to his most recognizable role, starring as Judge Harry Stone on Night Court beginning in 1984.

Anderson also had a life-long passion for magic and began touring the country performing, where he made close friends with some of the biggest stars in the field.

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. Night Court starred Anderson alongside John Larroquette as assistant district attorney Dan Fielding.

Night Court's Masha Warfield shared an old cast photo on Instagram. "I'm going to miss you, Harry". "Rest in peace, Harry".

Anderson and his wife, Elizabeth, looked at three houses in Montford on the same street and bought the third house the same day, The New York Times reported. They named the character Harry so I'd keep in mind to react when someone said my name. "I was asked because I was a big fan". I was just there last night and talked about how wonderful his magic was. He was just wonderful. Harris called him "one of my comedy and magic inspirations growing up".

Here is how Anderson's fans remembered his career.
