Harry Anderson, magician and star of 'Night Court,' dies at 65

'Night Court' actor found dead in his Asheville home, officials say

While no cause of death has been released, foul play is not suspected.

"This city hasn't evolved", Anderson told the New York Times. The affection for Torme was woven into his TV alter ego, Judge Harry Stone, a quirky character who ruled the bench at a Manhattan night court. His stage name was Harry the Hat for the fedora he habitually wore.

In 1990, Anderson starred in Stephen King's "It", the ABC miniseries.

(AP) - Authorities say actor Harry Anderson of "Night Court" comedy series fame has died in North Carolina. Occasionally, they tried a case or two.

He was nominated for three consecutive Emmy Awards for his portrayal of the eccentric judge. After the show ended, he starred in the CBS comedy "Dave's World" as columnist Dave Barry. The show ran for four seasons, from 1993 to 1997, before getting cancelled.

"I had more people in my auto last night", Mr. Anderson said, a reference to the thin crowd at Oswald's.

Russian Federation implements ban on Telegram
Roskomnadzor had prayed the court to block Telegram from operating in Russian Federation , and that the ban should be immediate. The Russian government argues that it needs access to encrypted messages on Telegram to fight security threats like terrorism.

Anderson logged a guest shot in FX's "Son of the Beach" in 2002 and a 2008 appearance on NBC's "30 Rock". They opened the nightclub Oswald's Speakeasy, where he performed, as well as a magic and curiosity shop, Sideshow. By 16, he had lived in many cities including Chicago, New York, St. Louis and New Orleans.

"I had more people in my vehicle last night", The Times quoted him as telling his piano player during a performance.

Anderson eventually returned to live performance. "I was a magician who fell into a part on 'Cheers'".

Judd Apatow mourned Anderson's death on Twitter Monday, writing, "I interviewed Harry Anderson when I was 15 years old and he was so kind, and frank and hilarious".

Born in Rhode Island in 1952, Anderson moved to Los Angeles as a teen, and after graduating from Hollywood High School, he moved to San Francisco, where he reportedly made money as a street magician.

For all his TV success, Anderson always remained a magician and illusionist at heart.
