harry anderson death

Hollywood is in mourning this week after the death of comedic actor Harry Anderson, who was best known for his role on the 1980s NBC sitcom “Night Court.” He was 65 years-old.

Daily Mail reported that Asheville police officers found Anderson dead when they were called to his North Carolina home at around 8 am on Monday, and though no cause of death has been revealed, no foul play is suspected.

Anderson’s career kicked off on “Saturday Night Live” before he was cast on “Night Court,” where he would receive three Emmy nominations. He went on to also appear on “Cheers” as well as his own sitcom “Dave’s World,” which ran from 1993-1997.

A talented musician, Anderson owned his own magic shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans as well as a nightclub called Oswald’s Speakeasy. He had kept a relatively low profile over the past few years, and he is survived by his wife Elizabeth Morgan and their two children.

Tributes have been pouring in for Anderson on Twitter since news of his death broke:

Rest in peace, Harry Anderson!
