Harry Anderson: R.I.P.

Harry Anderson who played Judge Harry Stone on the long running comedy Night Court was found dead early Monday at his home in Asheville, NC. He was 65. No foul play was suspected. He had been hospitalized with the flu a few months ago and remained sick.

I loved Harry Anderson on Night Court. Yes, the show was silly, but sometimes that's what you need to watch. He received three Emmys from 1985 to 1987. The show ran from 1984 to 1992. Harry Anderson like the character he played was a magician with a love for loud ties and a superfan of jazz. He appeared in many other sitcoms, again playing characters that took instruction from his own life.

I think he's also the one who made appearances on Cheers -- a lovable con man.
Sorry to hear of his death.
