You knew him as the judge on the hit sitcom "Night Court." Harry Anderson has passed away at the age of 65.

TMZ reports the actor died in his home today in North Carolina. While no cause has been announced, foul play is not suspected, according to police.

Sad. He did excellent stand up too. He did one routine where he juggled bowling balls. RIP

Harry Anderson had a pretty colorful life. He did an interview on Fresh Air back in '89. Fun Fact:  He didn't set out to be an actor.  He was hired as the con man in Cheers because he was a con man. Then the people casting Night Court didn't know he wasn't an actor and offered him the role.
