BIOGRAPHY:

Early life

Moll was born Charles Richard Moll in Pasadena, California, the son of Violet Anita (née Grill), a nurse, and Harry Findley Moll, a lawyer. He attended the University of California, Berkeley and was a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity.

Career
In 1981, Moll co-starred with Jan-Michael Vincent and Kim Basinger in the movie Hard Country. In 1982, under layers of makeup, he played the sorcerer Xusia in The Sword and the Sorcerer. In 1981, he played the abominable snowman alongside Ringo Starr and Dennis Quaid in the cult film Caveman. Later that year, he shaved his head for the role of Hurok in the science fiction B movie Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn, but the producers of Night Court liked the look so much in his audition that they asked him to keep it. Moll also used the Bull persona in commercials for Washington's Lottery. Moll also had a role as Big Ben, Roger Cobb's Vietnam comrade in the 1986 horror comedy film House.
Moll made a guest appearance in the pilot episode of Highlander: The Series as "Slan Quince", the villain who reunites Connor MacLeod with his kinsman and show's protagonist, Duncan MacLeod. He also made a guest appearance on Babylon 5 in the episode "Hunter, Prey" as a lurker criminal who was holding a VIP hostage.
In 1999's But I'm a Cheerleader, Moll went against type and played a gay man who, with his partner (Wesley Mann), helps gay teenagers escape from a nearby "gay camp," where homophobic parents send their teenage offspring to be "rehabilitated".
He can be heard in many animated film and cartoon productions, often as a villain with a deep, growling voice. Moll has voiced Two-Face in Batman: The Animated Series (as well as the voice of the Batcomputer) and the Scorpion in Spider-Man: The Animated Series. His first role in an animated film was as a beat poet in Ralph Bakshi's American Pop. He starred as the character of Norman in the animated series Mighty Max. He played the drifter on the Nickelodeon show 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd.
Moll appeared in The Flintstones and Casper Meets Wendy, both TV spin-offs. Moll also voiced the Devil Hulk in the 2005 video game Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and more recently Death in the 2010 game Dante's Inferno.
Additional television credits include Family Affair, The Rockford Files, How the West Was Won, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Fall Guy, T. J. Hooker, Fantasy Island, Alice, The Dukes of Hazzard, The A-Team, The Facts of Life, My Two Dads, 227, Martin, Due South, Babylon 5, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Baywatch, Married... with Children, 7th Heaven, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, The Parent 'Hood, Smallville, and the straight to video Uh-Oh! directed by Jon Cope.

Personal life
Moll married Susan Brown in 1993 and have two children together. They divorced in 2005.



TRIVIA:
  • He was cast in _"Night Court" (1984)_ (qv) not only for his comic skill as an actor, but also because the producers needed someone who could realistically tower over the fairly tall male cast (including 'Harry Anderson (I)' (qv) and 'John Larroquette' (qv)) as the imposing yet lovable court guard, "Bull".
  • Best remembered by the public for his role as "Bull" in "Night Court" (1984).
  • In between filming seasons of _"Night Court" (1984)_ (qv), he grew his hair back. Many would then mistake him for his Night Court co-star 'John Larroquette' (qv).
  • Before his audition, the creators of "Batman: The Animated Series" had set their hearts on a Marlon Brando-"Godfather"-esque style voice for the villain Two-Face. Moll's raspy, growling voice changed their plans completely and the new Two-Face became one of the more popular of the comic book-adapted villains on the show.
  • Is an avid fly-fisherman.
