Best remembered by the public for his role as Bull Shannon in Night Court (1984).
In between filming seasons of Night Court (1984), he grew his hair back. Many would then mistake him for his Night Court co-star John Larroquette.
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.
He was cast in Night Court (1984) 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 and John Larroquette) as the imposing yet lovable court guard Bull Shannon.
