The popular actor was most known for his role in the TV show Night Court as Judge Harry Stone, and he also had a recurring role on Cheers.

Asheville Police responded to the actor's home at 6:41 a.m., where he was found dead. Police do not suspect foul play.

However, it was his starring role as Judge Harry T. Stone on NBC's Night Court that made Anderson a household name.

Anderson's street magic act led to a guest spot on "Saturday Night Live", where he grabbed the attention of a producer for the sitcom "Cheers".

In his later years, Anderson kept a low profile, only occasionally appearing in shows like "30 Rock", "Son of the Beach" and "Comedy Bang!"

"The Shakespeare Festival at Ashland, Oregon, seemed like a good place to open a magic store", he said. They named the character Harry so I'd keep in mind to react when someone said my name. That series ran from 1993 until 1997.

"I am richer than Davy Crockett", Anderson said in the story. He even bought a comedy club in New Orleans, a city where he'd once worked as a street magician. "I can settle back and do what I want to do. I hope he is in some magical afterlife doing card tricks with Mel Tormé".

The performer passed away aged 65, according to IMDB. "I don't understand why guys have that Don Knotts syndrome of having to be out there".
