June 12, 2011 |  6:37 pm

Larroquette Daniel Radcliffe wasn't even nominated for his starring role in the revival of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." But his costar John Larroquette  fame took home a Tony for his featured role in the musical.

Larroquette -- best known for NBC's "Night Court" -- is making his Broadway debut in "Business" as J.B. Biggley, the corporate overlord who rules over Radcliffe's climber.

The other nominees in the category were Colman Domingo, Adam Godley, Forrest McClendon and Rory O'Malley.

In his acceptance speech, Larroquette thanked Radcliffe, "without whom I would be sitting at home watching this in my underwear."

During a commercial break, "War Horse" took the Tony for scenic design for a play.
