American actor John Larroquette began gaining public attention as a disc jockey. For several years, he paid the bills with TV and movie voiceovers, notably as the (uncredited) narrator of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). Larroquette started getting on-camera assignments in the mid 1970s, making his network TV bow in the role of Dr. Paul Herman in the prime time weekly Doctors' Hospital (1975-76); this was followed by a two-year stint as Robert Anderson on the Robert Conrad TV vehicle Black Sheep Squadron (1976-78). From 1984 through 1992, Larroquette portrayed assistant DA and self-styled ladies man Dan Fielding on the popular sitcom Night Court, a role which won him four Emmy awards. In 1994, the actor starred in his own series, The John Larroquette Show, playing an erudite recovering alcoholic who manages a St. Louis bus depot. He has also appeared in several forgettable movie roles, mostly in madcap comedies.
John had a bout of alcoholism during the seventies and eighties.
He won Emmies in 1985-86-87-88 for "Night Court" (1984).

Host of A & E's "The Incurable Collector" (2001).
His role as a Johnny Carson style talk show host was omitted from the theatrical version of JFK (1991) but restored in the director's cut on video/DVD. He actually wrote a letter to Carson just to inform him he was playing the part and Carson appreciated the gesture.
