FactBefore his audition, the creators of "Batman: The Animated Series" had set their hearts on a Marlon Brando-"Godfather"-esque style voice for the villain Two-Face. Moll's raspy, growling voice changed their plans completely and the new Two-Face became one of the more popular of the comic book-adapted villains on the show.


Who is Richard Moll?

Richard Moll is a talented American actor, perhaps best known for his role as Bull from “Night Court.” He is also distinguished by his uniquely deep voice, that has helped him land various voice roles in video games and films.

Richard Moll Age, Early Life, Family, and Education Background

Richard was born under the Capricorn Zodiac sign on 13 January 1943, in Pasadena, California, USA, to parents Violet Anita Grill and Harry Findley Moll, making him 77 years old as of 2020. His father was a renowned city lawyer, while his mother worked as a nurse. He is American by nationality and belongs to white ethnicity.

Richard had an extraordinary growth rate during his childhood. While an average 12-year-old boy would stand at 4.8 feet, Richard was already six feet at that age. It’s not clear whether he has any siblings or was an only child as he has not shared such information online.

Regarding his education, after matriculating from high school, Richard joined and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in history and psychology. While at university, he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity.

Richard Moll Career Beginnings and Rise to Prominence

After graduating in 1964, Richard worked as a deputy probation officer in Alameda County, but only lasted ten months. After that, he worked in ladies’ hosiery as the head of stock at a San Francisco store – according to him, he believed that he was in the wrong place.

In 1968, Richard relocated to Hollywood, with the intention of making it big in the film industry, however, what followed was a decade of stops and starts. While trying to make ends meet, he took up odd jobs and occasional commercial roles, including playing a cannibal in the mid-70s Hertz commercial with “Get Smart’s” Don Adams.

Richard Moll

Richard’s acting career took off in 1977, when he landed the role of Joseph Smith in the movie “Brigham”, and later a support role in the Emmy Award-winning TV film “The Jericho Mile”, alongside Richard Lawson, Peter Strauss and Roger E. Mosley.

He continued working in minor roles in various films, including the adventure movie “The Sword and the Sorcerer”, before he finally got his breakthrough. In 1984, Moll was chosen for one of his notable roles, as Aristotle Nostradamus “Bull” Shannon to appear in the television comedy series “Night Court.”

The series ran from 1984 to 1992; in 2013 when he was asked whether he would love to have a reunion with the cast and shoot a new season of the show, his response was a stern ‘no’. He was quoted saying, ‘No way in hell I would do a reunion.’

Richard enjoyed his success while this series lasted, and it led to more notable roles. Richard was at his peak during the ‘80s and ‘90s with various roles such as in “Getting By” as Boo, “Sidekicks” as Horn, and as Dementor in the movie “Jingle All the Way,” among other roles, all of which led to his prominence.

Other films he appeared in during this time included “Out of this World,” “Loaded Weapon 1,” “Martin,” “Babylon 5,” “Sabrina The Teenage Witch,” and “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.”

Although Richard appeared in various films on screen, the one on which he left his mark was the television series “Night Court,” but from 2000 onwards, he has been in more than 40 television series and films. However, none of those roles has been notable in any way since they have all been minor parts in B-production films. They include “Scary Movie 2,” “Cold Case,” “Smallville,” “Nightmare Man,” a horror-comedy, “Love at First Hiccup,” a comedy movie, “Sorority Party Massacre,” a horror-comedy, “Anger Management” and “Slay Belles,” his most recent horror film appearance in 2018.

Richard Moll Voice Acting

Moll has contributed as a voice actor to numerous animated films and video games, including “Mighty Max,” in which he played Norman. However, his best voice roles are Dent in “Batman: The Animated Series,” Harvey in “Two-Face,” and the Scorpion on “Spider-Man: The Animated Series.” The first and the third films ran on FOX between the early and mid-‘90s. Richard has also lent his voice to various video games, including “The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction,” and “Fallout.”

Richard Moll Personal Life, Wife, and Children

Moll met and fell in love with Laura Class in 1988, and the couple tied the knot the same year.

However, their love story was short-lived as they divorced after just four years in 1992. Soon after Richard met yet another damsel, Khrystyne Haje, but the relationship never materialized into a marriage, and they broke up the same year.

He then dated Susan Brown for a year, introduced to her by her stepfather, the late Milton Berle, a comedian, and the couple married in 1993. They were blessed with two children, Chloe born in 1995 and Mason in 1996; the marriage lasted 12 years but in 2005, the couple called it quits and divorced.

Richard is also a stepfather to Cassandra and Morgan. Richard was fond of his father-in-law, who passed on in March 2002. He says ‘I loved Milton and I miss him more than I realized.’ After his divorce, there is no information of Richard getting into another relationship.

Moll resides in Los Angeles. He is an avid antique collector, and his biggest goal is to keep improving his craft.

Richard Moll Net Worth

After being in the acting industry for such a long time, Richard has amassed a good amount of wealth. According to reputable sources, his net worth is estimated to be as high as $5 million as of 2020.

Facts

#Fact
1Best remembered by the public for his role as Bull Shannon in Night Court (1984).
2In between filming seasons of Night Court (1984), he grew his hair back. Many would then mistake him for his Night Court co-star John Larroquette.
3Before his audition, the creators of "Batman: The Animated Series" had set their hearts on a Marlon Brando-"Godfather"-esque style voice for the villain Two-Face. Moll's raspy, growling voice changed their plans completely and the new Two-Face became one of the more popular of the comic book-adapted villains on the show.
4He was cast in Night Court (1984) not only for his comic skill as an actor, but also because the producers needed someone who could realistically tower over the fairly tall male cast (including Harry Anderson and John Larroquette) as the imposing yet lovable court guard Bull Shannon.
5Is an avid fly-fisherman.
