One of the best.  He was one of my old man's favorite actors (Hook especially).  I still remember watching his stuff when I was younger.

I know I probably hold a really unpopular opinion, but I love Mork and Mindy. Granted I haven't watched it since I hit puberty, but when my mom first showed it to me I knew Robin Williams would be my favorite actor from then on. Outside of my family he was the first person I learned to identify by name, sight, and voice.

I may not have known him personally or anything, but I'm in mourning. My heart goes out to his family and friends. My family recently went through a great loss like they are experiencing now and I can only hope they find solace in the fact that he single-handedly touched the lives of oh-so-many and they have the love and support of millions.

 

Rest in Peace, Robin, O captain, my captain.

The Mork episode of Happy Days was on earlier, actually.

look for marc maron's podcast interview with williams if you're interested in what kind of demons he's had to deal with.

 

it's not gonna be like most interviews where you'll be reduced to a gigglepuss, but you'll get the idea.

 

sorry, I would've posted it here but I can't seem to embed anything on this newish forum.

In my opinion, Robin Williams was one of those actors who always played themselves in movies, or at least the same type of character.

That doesn't take away from the fact he always seemed to be a very kind and soft-hearted person.

I think that's part of the problem of having a very distinct voice. Robin Williams could definitely do calm roles, he's even won awards for them if I remember right. The damning part is that people hear the voice and immediately associate it with something else, even if it's completely unrelated to what's in front of them. Look at Will Ferrell or Jerry Seinfeld, they have the same problem.

As famous on the Internet as Domo
But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

Apparently he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's before he died.
