Revenge of the nerd: The legacy of Harry Anderson

Harry Anderson, who starred on nearly 200 episodes of "Night Court", was reportedly found dead in his North Carolina home Monday morning.

An Asheville police spokesperson Christina Hallingse told The Hollywood Reporter: "This morning at 6.41 am, the Asheville Police Department responded to the home of actor Harry Anderson where he was found deceased". At this time, there is no official cause of death, and no foul play is suspected.

Born in Newport, R.I., Anderson earned three Emmy nominations for his portrayal of the quirky, baby-faced judge while starring on Night Court from 1984 to 1992.

Anderson began his career with small roles on "Tales from the Darkside" and "The Dark Side" before breaking out on "Saturday Night Live" in the early 1980s.

Harry Laverne Anderson was born in Newport, R.I., on October 14, 1952. In 1985, he told People magazine that he used to run a classic street hustle, the shell game, in San Francisco, where, at 21 years old, he had his jaw broken by an opponent who was livid at the game's outcome. "I was a magician who fell into a part on 'Cheers'".

"I was never really an actor", he said. He also starred as adult version of Richie Tozier in ABC's miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's It.

" "Cheers" was my first acting job, but it was basically the character I had developed on the street", he said. He would go on to star as Dave Barry in the TV series Dave's World, which ran from 1993 to 1997 for 98 episodes. He even owned a magic shop in the French Quarter of New Orleans, and in 2005 opened a nightclub in the Big Easy called Oswald's Speakeasy.

The performer passed away aged 65, according to IMDB. He sold his home in Pasadena, California, and moved back to New Orleans, where he had lived in the 1970s. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, he moved to Asheville.

The late actor is survived by two children and his wife, Elizabeth Morgan.
