Five-Time Emmy Winner Returns to Television With Role on NBC Drama Deadline
Five-time Emmy Award winner John Larroquette, once a television fixture with roles on NBC’s “Night Court” and “The John Larroquette Show,” Hallmark Channel’s “McBride” and other series, is headed back to NBC, Deadline.com reports.
Larroquette will be featured in seven of the 13 episodes of the midseason drama “Infamous,” the story reports.
Deadline says of “Infamous”: “It is an opulent soap in which a female detective (Meagan Good) returns undercover to the wealthy and troubled Bowers family she grew up in -- as the maid’s daughter -- to solve the murder of notorious heiress Vivian, who was once her closest friend.”
Larroquette won four consecutive Emmys -- a record at the time -- for his work on “Night Court” in the 1980s before taking himself out of the running. He later received a fifth Emmy for a guest role on “The Practice.”
“Larroquette will play Sen. Dwight Haverstock, a powerful politician who has a dark history with the family,” Deadline reports. “The estranged best friend of Robert Bowers (Victor Garber), Haverstock is unpredictable with extreme appetites and big secrets.”
Larroquette has been appearing on Broadway, recently wrapping up Gore Vidal’s “The Best Man.” He previously won a Tony for “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
