Re: RIP - Robin Williams

Wow, so does that make "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" the last movie for both Mickey Rooney and Robin Williams?

Re: Robin Williams RIP

I first saw this posted on some sketchy looking site and wrote it off when a Google search returned nothing. But maybe they were just ahead of the curve.

Sucks.

“Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Loathed his comedy "shtick", but he was great in more serious roles, ie: Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting... RIP.

I don't know about it being hard to believe. He's battled a lot of personal demons through his life and was well-known for his drug use. I just thought he had cleaned up enough, but I guess not.

Re: RIP - Robin Williams

Wow. I really liked him. He had odd rolls, but I do remember him in Mork and Mindy and liked that. Thought he did good stuff in Good Morning Vietnam, and sure I liked watching him in Ms. Doubtfire. Though my favorites might have been Dead Poet Society and Good Will Hunting. But I legally enjoyed his various appearences on late night shows and guest appearences where would just sort of take off.

He was just at rehab here in Minnesota a few weeks ago. So sad.
