Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

John Larroquette spent a majority of his acting career in the courtroom, playing crude and sex-obsessed Dan Fielding in "Night Court" (NBC, 1984-1992). The tall framed actor won four Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actor as the hilariously vulgar Assistant District Attorney of the long-running courtroom comedy. Larroquette won his fifth Emmy in 1998 as a guest star on two episodes of another legal themed series "The Practice" (ABC, 2004- ). In 2007, after having played everything from a bus driver to a detective to a Klingon, the TV veteran made a triumphant return to the courtroom when he joined the cast of "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004- ).
