Towering character actor Richard Moll, best known for his on-screen roles in shows like “Night Court” and voice acting such as Harvey Dent/Two-Face in “Batman: The Animated Series,” has died. He was 80.

Moll reportedly died peacefully Thursday at his home in Big Bear Lake, California according to a family spokesperson. Boasting a 6’8 height and distinct voice, Moll was able to play both dark and lighthearted throughout his career.

His most iconic role is arguably as tenderhearted bailiff Aristotle Nostradamus ‘Bull’ Shannon on all nine seasons of NBC’s “Night Court” during its original run.

His voice-over work on “Batman: The Animated Series” scored much acclaim, with the two-part origin story of his Two-Face character often considered amongst the show’s best episodes.

His work however goes well beyond those two with massive resumes in film and television. He was the villain Big Ben in horror film “House,” the sorcerer Xusia in “The Sword and the Sorcerer,” a Yeti in “Caveman,” and a prison guard in “Loaded Weapon 1”.

Other film credits include “The Dungeonmaster,” “The Flintstones,” “But I’m a Cheerleader,” “Jingle All the Way,” “Scary Movie 2,” “Evolution,” “Sorority Party Massacre,” “Casper: A Spirited Beginning,” “Snide and Prejudice,” “Hard Country,” “Night Train to Terror” and “Dutch”.

On TV he was also a regular on “Mighty Max,” and had countless guest-starring and recurring roles on shows like “Happy Days,” “Highlander,” “Welcome Back, Kotter,” “The Rockford Files,” “The A-Team,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “Babylon 5,” “T. J. Hooker,” “The Fall Guy,” “Laverne & Shirley,” “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century,” “Remington Steele,” “Fantasy Island,” “The Facts of Life,” “Baywatch,” “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” “Due South,” “Superman: The Animated Series,” “Married with Children,” “7th Heaven,” “Smallville,” “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” and as several Marvel villains like Scorpion and Abomination over various animated shows.

Moll was married and divorced twice and is survived by his children Chloe and Mason, and his stepchildren, Cassandra and Morgan.
