Markie Post, who played Anderson's love interest Christine Sullivan on Night Court, tweeted, "I am devastated". "I was never really an actor". "I was a magician who fell into a part on 'Cheers'".

Before "Night Court", Anderson played Harry, a small-time con man and semi-regular patron at the bar in "Cheers".
