In addition to his nine seasons on “Night Court,” Moll’s TV work included appearances on “Cold Case,” “Anger Management” and “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.” He also voiced characters in “The Adventures of Batman and Robin” and “Spider-Man: The Animated Series,” and had film roles in “But I’m a Cheerleader,” Scary Movie 2″ and “Jingle All the Way.”

Moll is reportedly survived by his children, Chloe and Mason, as well as two stepchildren, Cassandra and Morgan, and his ex-wife, Susan Brown, to whom he was married from 1993 to 2005.

Standing at 6 feet 8 inches, Moll was best known for “Night Court” as the towering but lovable Bull. The character did not return for the recent “Night Court” reboot.
