TRANSCRIPT Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: John Larroquette

John Larroquette is an actor with almost 50 years of experience. The trajectory of his career is an especially interesting one. His first acting gig was narrating the intro to a very famous horror film by the name of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But, acting was not a viable career choice for Larroquette until he hit it big on the NBC sitcom Night Court. His performance as the prosecutor Dan Fielding earned him four consecutive Emmy awards and propelled his success as an actor. The original show aired its last episode in 1992. But this year, Night Court is back on NBC. John Larroquette joins us on Bullseye to chat about his return as Dan Fielding and what it’s like to revisit such an iconic role after almost 30 years. Plus, his early ventures as a radio DJ and his journey to sobriety.
