When the revival of Night Court reintroduced the character of Dan Fielding, he was a much different man than when we last saw him on the original show. Older, humbled, and even somewhat broken, the “new” Fielding switched from prosecutor to defense attorney and now serves as an elder statesman of sorts around a cast of much younger characters. John Larroquette, who reprises the role in the revival, told us that showing how the character had changed over time was an important part of his decision to join the show.
