Richard Moll, the goofy bailiff “Bull” from the iconic show Night Court, passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was 76.

Moll, born Richard Running Bull Strongwater to a Cherokee family outside of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, took his wife’s name to escape the racism of the Hollywood elites. Re-branded Richard Moll, he was able to land parts on such great shows as Happy Days, He Man, and, of course, Night Court.

Moll’s most famous appearance, however, came during season 4 of Celebrity Apprentice, when he beat Cyndi Lauper and Chuck Norris for the win. The way Ivanka looked at him was priceless.

His family has asked for privacy during this difficult time. He will be missed.

This is the only picture we could find that anyone would recognize.

Prior to acting, Moll moved to Bali, where he ran a small noodle stand with his uncle, the weird bird from Kung-Fu Panda. As it turned out, there really was a secret recipe. Moll sold it for crack, and ate his uncle for Thanksgiving before learning that some things are more valuable than butterscotch candy.

So, he shaved his head, got clean, and by the time he was 19, had made a name for himself as the best fluffer in the valley. That landed him an audition with Harvey Weinstein, who recommended him to Harry Stone, and the rest is history.

Rest in peace, Bull. We hardly knew thee.
