Celebs, Social Media Mourn Harry Anderson: 'One of a Kind Talent'

The actor died at his home Monday in North Carolina.

Asheville Police Department responded to Anderson's home and found him dead at 6:41 a.m., Public Affairs officer Christina Hallingse told The Hollywood Reporter. While no cause has been announced, foul play is not suspected, according to police. The loss of the actor who played Night Court's good-natured Judge Harry Stone from 1984 to 1992 brought out tributes from former cast members and stars.

He also appeared on the series "Tales From The Crypt".

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Morgan, whom he married in 2000, and his two children from his first wife, Leslie Pollack. Anderson also had numerous appearances on "Saturday Night Live" in the early 80s. Night Court starred Anderson alongside John Larroquette as assistant district attorney Dan Fielding.


Marsha Warfield, who came onto Night Court in 1986 as the show's third bailiff, Rosalind Russell, left a tearful video on her Facebook page filmed in the front seat of her vehicle after hearing the sad news. "I tip my hat to you, my friend", she wrote in the caption. They named the character Harry so I'd keep in mind to react when someone said my name. It was a dream come true.

Upon hearing the news, fellow comedic actor and magician Neil Patrick Harris called Anderson "one of my comedy and magic inspirations growing up".

Here is how Anderson's fans remembered his career.
