Night Court, the irreverent sitcom about a downtown municipal night court for petty crimes, featured a terrific ensemble cast. In 2023, NBC rebooted the sitcom, which originally ran from 1984 to 1992. Here’s a look at what the original cast has been doing in the passing decades.
Judge Harry T. Stone, Harry Anderson
Harry Anderson portrayed the lead role of Judge Harry T. Stone on Night Court. He also had notable roles as journalist Dave Barry in the sitcom Dave’s World (1993-1997) and a recurring role on Cheers. He even performed magic on Saturday Night Live.
Additionally, he made a guest appearance as himself in the classic Night Court episode of 30 Rock. His final role was in the 2014 film A Matter of Faith. The veteran actor passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 16, 2018, at age 65 due to a stroke caused by influenza and heart disease.
Dan Fielding, John Larroquette
Joining the Night Court cast as smarmy lawyer Dan Fielding propelled John Larroquette to fame. The role earned him four consecutive Emmy awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Larroquette had his own sitcom called The John Larroquette Show on NBC from 1993-1996.
The actor has maintained a consistent work schedule, appearing in TV shows like Parks and Recreation, Chuck, and The Good Fight. He reprised his role as Dan Fielding in the revival of Night Court, starring alongside Melissa Rauch.
Christine Sullivan, Markie Post
In addition to her portrayal of Christine Sullivan, Markie Post achieved recognition for her role as Georgie Hartman in the sitcom Hearts Afire from 1992 to 1995. She also appeared on The Fall Guy as Terry Michaels, a bail bondswoman, from 1982 to 1985. Post was also a solid partner on the $25,000 Pyramid.
Furthermore, she portrayed the recurring character Barbara “Bunny” Fletcher in Chicago P.D. for the first four seasons of the series. Sadly, Post passed away in 2021 at the age of 70.
Bailiff ‘Bull’ Shannon, Richard Moll
After his time on Night Court as the loveable bailiff Aristotle Nostradamus “Bull” Shannon, Richard Moll gained recognition for his voiceover work. He voiced Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures, as well as the heroic bodyguard Norman in the 1993 animated series Mighty Max. Moll also did a lot of creature character work in television, like for his role in the horror anthology series, Monsters.
Moll also appeared in films such as But I’m a Cheerleader, Casper Meets Wendy, Scary Movie 2, and the 1986 horror film House, which earned him a Saturn Award nomination. Moll sadly passed away in October 2023 at the age of 80.
Bailiff Roz, Marsha Warfield
After her time with the Night Court cast, Marsha Warfield had notable recurring roles in The John Larroquette Show and Dave’s World. In 1999, Warfield transitioned away from screen acting and embarked on a successful career as a stand-up comedian. However, in 2021, she made a triumphant return to the small screen, captivating audiences as Toni Wilson on 9-1-1. Fans of the original Night Court were recently treated to Warfield returning to her iconic role in the revival.
Charlie Robinson was Frequently Recognized in Public for Being part of the ‘Night Court’ Cast
Veteran actor Charlie Robinson played the grounded Macintosh “Mac” Robinson on the iconic sitcom. Robinson was frequently recognized for being part of the Night Court cast, something he took in stride.
Following his time on Night Court, Charlie Robinson joined the cast of various successful television shows, such as The Bernie Mac Show, How I Met Your Mother, Charmed, My Wife and Kids, and My Name Is Earl.
