When he was initially cast as Bailiff Bull, the character was supposed to be a tough-as-nails official, but Moll’s naturally exuding warmth completely transformed the character. His catchphrase of “Ooooookay!” is embedded in the pop culture consciousness, with many people quoting it without even realize the origins with Moll’s performance. He would eventually play himself on “The Facts of Life,” and had a healthy career as a character actor, boasting over 180 roles to his resume. But for this writer, he’ll always have a special place in my heart as Larry in “But I’m a Cheerleader,” where he played against type as one of two gay men (along with Wesley Mann) who help gay teenagers escape from conversion therapy camp.
While Moll did not return for the “Night Court” revival, he never stopped acting. He is slated to posthumously appear in a film called “Whispers and Shadows” which is in post-production, as well as a documentary called “Celluloid Wizards in the Video Wasteland: The Saga of Empire Pictures.” In addition to his voiceover work on “Batman: The Animated Series,” he also voiced the beat poet in Ralph Bakshi’s “American Pop,” Norman on “Mighty Max,” Vorn the Unspeakable on “Freakazoid!,” and the Devil Hulk in the video game “Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction,” in addition to Death and King Minos in “Dante’s Inferno.”
Moll is survived by his children, Chloe and Mason, and his stepchildren, Cassandra and Morgan. May he rest in peace.
