On the OG Night Court, Roz Russell, played by Marsha Warfield, was one of the Manhattan Municipal Court’s two bailiffs, along with Bull Shannon. Tough and straightforward, Roz could always be counted on to make a sly comment or witty comeback to her coworkers. Her character was first introduced in Season 4, and she and Bull formed an incredible friendship throughout the series. But should viewers expect to see Warfield on the new Night Court?
Is Marsha Warfield returning as the Night Court bailiff?
As of right now, Marsha Warfield is not set to revive her role as Roz Russell in the new version Night Court.
However, the revival has gotten Warfield’s official approval. She gave the show a nod on her TikTok account, saying, “I hear there’s a new Night Court in town! Congratulations! I hope that it was as wonderful as it sounds, and I wish the cast and crew and everybody involved all the best. John, congratulations, I can’t imagine a new show doing better than having you to build around. I hope everybody gets to learn as much from you as I did when I worked with you. I hope you have as much fun this time around as we did the first time."
As for Warfield’s current endeavors, her most recent TV credit is that of Toni Wilson in the show 9-1-1.
Who is the Night Court bailiff now?
With big shoes to fill, the actress who is stepping in for both bailiffs on the new Night Court is the comedian Lacretta, who plays Donna “Gurgs” Gurganous.
“I think I loved Roz's sensibility and her sense of style,” Lacretta told TheaterMania when asked about who inspired her from the original Night Court. “I was obsessed with Roz. I wanted to stand in my own character because Gurgs is her own character and is not Marsha Warfield, and she's not Richard Moll.”
