Richard Moll (born January 13, 1943) is an American actor who played Bull Shannon, the bailiff on the NBC sitcom Night Court from 1983 to 1992. Standing 6'8" tall, he is also a voice artist, playing villains with his distinctive rough-sounding voice.

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.

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.
