Harry Anderson, famed 80s sitcom star best known for his work as judge Harry T. Stone on "Night Court", has died at age 65.

Asheville Police responded to the actor's home at 6:41 a.m., where he was found dead.

Foul play wasn't suspected, she said.

Beyond Night Court, Anderson found acclaim again in the '90s, playing the nerdy-but-lovable newspaper columnist Dave Barry in the series Dave's World. Born in Rhode Island, Anderson reportedly had a hard childhood and moved frequently with his mother, whom he once described in an interview with Playboy as "a hustler".

"I interviewed Harry Anderson when I was 15 years old and he was so kind, and frank and hilarious". He also starred in a TV-adaption of Stephen King's, It.

The magician-turned-actor first made a name for himself on Season 1 of Cheers.

Anderson was nominated for three consecutive Emmy Awards in the mid-1980s for his portrayal of the eccentric Judge Harry Stone on "Night Court", IMDB says.

"I got into magic when I was a child", he told The Associated Press in 1987.

Anderson has said he never sought to be an actor. He became a street performer and reportedly ran a lucrative shell game on the streets of San Francisco for a time. With his wife, Elizabeth, he opened a nightclub and magic store in New Orleans in 2000, but they moved to North Carolina in 2006 after the businesses struggled in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

He said in a People magazine story: "I am richer than Davy Crockett". I hope he is in some magical afterlife doing card tricks with Mel Tormé'. "I don't understand why guys have that Don Knotts syndrome of having to be out there", he said. He sold his home in Pasadena, Calif., and moved back to New Orleans, where he had lived in the 1970s.
