From 1984 to 1992, Moll immortalized the character of “Bull” Shannon on NBC’s “Night Court,” sharing the screen with stars like Harry Anderson and John Larroquette. His character developed a deep bond with fellow bailiff Roz Russell, brought to life by Marsha Warfield. Bull became known for his trademark catchphrase, “Ohh-kay,” and his endearing but somewhat naive perspective on the world.

Following the conclusion of “Night Court,” Moll lent his distinctive gravelly voice to a range of video games and comic book ventures, including his portrayal of Harvey Dent in “Batman: The Animated Series.” He also made appearances in horror movies such as “Ghost Shark” (2013) and “Slay Belles” (2018).

In the realm of animated series, Moll voiced Scorpion in the 1990s’ “Spider-Man: The Animated Series” and made small appearances in notable films like “The Flintstones” (1994), the Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy “Jingle All the Way,” and “Scary Movie 2.”

This towering actor, standing at an impressive 6 feet 8 inches, declined the opportunity to join the reboot of “Night Court” alongside Larroquette. The original “Night Court” series concluded with his character being spirited away by aliens who required his height to access items on their highest shelves.

Richard Moll is survived by his children, Chloe and Mason Moll, his ex-wife Susan Moll, and stepchildren Cassandra Card and Morgan Ostling.
