‘Night Court’s’ John Larroquette recalls alcohol spiral

By Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: HOLLYWOOD – It’s a wonderful life for “Night Court’s” John Larroquette. His Dan Fielding character – dubbed “the best insufferable twerp since Eddie Haskell” by TV Guide – is always met with gratifying boos by the audience that flock to “Night Court” tapings.

Larroquette has been honored with an Emmy nomination.

He and his family recently moved into the house that “Night Court” bought, a Malibu hideaway overlooking the Pacific, where he views the rings of Saturn through his telescope at night. The series is guaranteed for a run of at least two more years; Larroquette will never have to worry about money again.

Four years ago, says John Larroquette, he was drinking himself to death.

“It’s something I don’t talk about that much, something I don’t particularly wear on my sleeve,” he says. “Applauding me for quitting is sort of like giving a trophy to a cowboy with hemorrhoids for not riding his horse.”

    could you ask him about a possable Night Court Reunion Show?? its now almost 20 years. it was a simpler time, and i wouldnt mind seeing it again. i know he has the power to make it happen. i wouldnt mind sharing an idea or two, for posable plots for the start of the show. it was and still is a show that is a must watch. its amazzing now a days you turn it on and watch and laughf at the show, and all at once the half hour is over. and you ask your self? ” why and how dose the time go so qwick?” i do think that time in tv is slowly slipping away from us. or maybe its just the simple time it was from, that we miss. In thease times of hard times for most, we want to hold on to our times that so remember to be so much lighter feeling.
