I was pretty young when Robin Williams first rose to stardom as Mork from Ork, but I was a dedicated fan. I bought a pair of official Mork suspenders and wore them all the time. »

An emotional 'Ask Drew' looks back at the life and work of the great Robin Williams

13 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question:  how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »

R.I.P. Robin Williams (1951 – 2014)

11 August 2014 11:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We are very sad to report that Oscar-winning American actor and comedian Robin Williams has passed away yesterday in what California police are describing as an apparent suicide. He was 63.

Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1951, Williams attended the prestigious Julliard School in the 1970s before gaining his breakthrough with guest role as the alien Mork in Happy Days, which led to the popular spin-off Mork & Mindy. In addition to gaining acclaim for his stand-up work, Williams’ film career began to take off in the 1980s, with roles in Popeye, The World According to Garp, Moscow on the Hudson, Good Morning, Vietnam and Dead Poets Society, the latter two providing him with his first Academy Award nominations.

During the 1990s, Williams continued to mix comedic roles with serious work, appearing in the likes of Awakenings, The Fisher King, Toys, Hook, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Jack, The Birdcage, Flubber and Good Will Hunting, »

What did Robin Williams mean to you?

Open thread: The actor and comedian has been found dead at his California home. What will you remember him for?

Robin Williams found dead in California home aged 63

Peter Bradshaw on Williams: a big heart, a love of broad comedy, a staggering talent

The actor and comedian Robin Williams has died at the age of 63. He rose to fame on the TV series Mork & Mindy and went on to a career starring in some of the biggest films of the era.

His oeuvre spanned the spectrum of film: serious drama (Dead Poets Society, Awakenings, Good Will Hunting, The Fisher King), childrens films (Mrs Doubtfire, Hook, Aladdin, Jumanji, Flubber, Patch Adams) and comedies (Good Morning Vietnam, Death to Smoochy).

One of the best artists to ever grace the screen. This feels like a personal loss. I got into poetry after watching Dead Poets' Society and felt like I too was a student of his. »

Robin Williams moved from commercial productions to prestige cinema with ease

11 August 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I had to stop and think about it. When was the first time I encountered Robin Williams? I'm pretty sure it was reruns of "Mork & Mindy" at a young age, if not the boisterous Oscar-nominated performance he gave in Barry Levinson's "Good Morning, Vietnam." By then he had already dazzled countless audiences in "The World According to Garp." Whatever it was, like so many, it was the start of, as his widow noted in a release, "countless moments of joy and laughter" he would deliver for the next three decades of my life. And now, he's gone. It soon became erratic late night appearances with David Letterman and the like, as the movies flowed in. Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen," for instance, or another, much more timid Oscar-nominated performance in Peter Weir's "Dead Poets Society." He continued to spotlight range and versatility in Penny Marshall »

Robin Williams Dies At Age 63

11 August 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Police have reported that Robin Williams was found dead in his Tiburon home this morning. He was 63.

The cause of death appears to be suicide, police say. Williams’ publicist released a statement shortly afterward saying that the actor had been battling severe depression.

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.

Williams rose to fame with the Happy Days spin-off Mork & Mindy. It’s been said that he was so witty on that show that the writers would frequently leave blank moments on the page so he could have the proper room to ad-lib. That was where audiences first were exposed to his hilarity, and we were able to enjoy it all the way through his most recent roles.

But he wasn’t only a funny man, »
