Actor Harry Anderson, best known for starring in Night Court and Dave's World, was found dead in his Asheville, North Carolina, home Monday morning. He was 65. Police say no foul play is suspected. Born in Rhode Island in 1952, Anderson moved to Los Angeles as a teen, and after graduating from Hollywood High School, he moved to San Francisco, where he reportedly made money as a street magician. Following an appearance on Saturday Night Live, Anderson got a guest spot on Cheers, which led to the role of Judge Harry T. Stone on Night Court. "I guess they figured I was an actor," he told the Bradenton Herald. "By the time they figured out that I couldn't act scared on the subway at 4 a.m., I already had a five-year contract."
