davidcole: I just finished watching the "The Crazy Ones" episode which him, where the actress that played Mindy was his new girlfriend.


That one's on the to-do list. It just moved right to the top.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

We watched Mork and Mindy the other weekend, so funny.  Our daughter (17) couldn't work out why her mother and I were laughing so much.
Classic.

I'm so shocked and sad about his passing :( No other actor has ever let me experience such a wide range of emotions, from the sadness of Good Morning Vietnam, the inspiration of Dead Poets Society to hysteric laughter every time I see the Genie in Aladdin. Farewell, Mr. Williams. You will be missed.

I didnt like him in Mork and Mindy but Mrs Doubtfire, Jumanji and Dead Poets Society plus others I cant think of off hand were great.  Wasnt impressed with RV.  The one I liked best of all was him in Dead Poets society.   He was a great actor and will be missed

It just goes to show that no matter how famous, popular, wealthy you are, depression and addiction know no boundaries, and to use a cliche we're all human. Such a great loss.

I went to his 'Weapons of Self Destruction' show in Auckland a few years ago, absolutely hilarious he was.

I physically walked into him on the red carpet at the opening of the Planet Hollywood when he was here for the opening. Security jumped on me, but I had my head down and headphones on. He was very nice and waved off his security. Took me a minute to realize to whom I had collided and wish I had my wits about me :)

Introduced the kids to Robin Williams in the form of Aladdin just in the weekend. It was a fantastic performance that had the kids in stitches. Could only have been ad libbed. Stunned to read the story.

Apparently most of the Genie dialogue was ad-libbed.
