Robin Williams Open Thread
I am sure everyone is aware of the tragic death of Robin Williams yesterday.
This is the fist time I have ever seen my facebook feed explode with grief over the death of a famous person. There have been other examples of death notices being spread around but those were more niche offerings. Everyone seems to love the crazy man.
Consider this an open thread on Robin Williams. Favorite roles? Favorite jokes? First exposure to Robin Williams, etc?
I remember watching Mork and Mindy reruns as a kid on Nick at Night. My favorite Robin Williams role is a small one and from 1991’s Dead Again. Robin Williams plays a disgraced and delicensed but brilliant psychologist who works the night shift at a meatpacking plant or the meat freezer of a grocery. This was one of my first exposures to serious acting and Robin Williams took all his manic energy and focused it on something darker and bitter but still sardonic.
