Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Though his tall stature presented problems early on in his career, actor Richard Moll used his 6-foot-8-inch height to his advantage playing the dimwitted but loveable bailiff Bull Shannon on the hit sitcom "Night Court" (NBC, 1984-1992). Prior to that career-defining role, Moll had spent the better part of a decade languishing in commercials, forgettable features and undistinguished made-for-television movies. But as one of the more popular characters on "Night Court," he was able to branch out into larger films and even voiceover work on animated series, often relishing the chance to play the bad guy. After "Night Court" wrapped for good, Moll found life in animation as the voice of Harvey Dent/Two-Face on "The Adventures of Batman & Robin" (Fox, 1992-95) and Scorpion on "Spider-Man: The Animated Series" (Fox, 1994-98), while finding time for small parts in big studio movies like "The Flintsones" (1994), "Jingle All the Way" (1996) and "Scary Movie 2" (2002). Though he failed to find another high-profile role like he did with "Night Court," Moll nonetheless remained an in-demand character actor in a variety of screen projects.
