Robin Williams died at Noon PST today, of “asphyxiation”, after a long fight with depression.
One of the greatest comedians of this era, and possibly of all-time, Williams will always be remembered for his great roles and snappy remarks.
Let’s take a quick look at some of his more memorable moments:
- Golden Globe for Good Morning, Vietnam — The Fisher King — Mrs. Doubtfire — Patch Adams
- Golden Globe nominee and Academy Award for Good Will Hunting
- Other great roles in movies such as Dead Poets Society — Flubber — Bicentennial Man
- Of course, my favorite: Genie in Aladdin
- We can’t forget his TV roles and Golden Globes in Mork & Mindy
- And his all too numerous appearances on Saturday Night Live
Personally, I always loved listening to his comedy albums, most recently Weapons of Self Destruction.
He was 63 years old.
You ain’t never had a friend like me.
