Robin Williams, America’s beloved spastic comic and Oscar winning actor is dead. He’d had a non-stop career since arriving on the small screen as Mork from Ork, first as a guest appearance on ‘Happy Days’ then in the popular spin-off ‘Mork & Mindy’ also starring Pam Dawber.
In addition to his zany mania-induced ability to ad lib like no one else in comedy, Williams was also cast in dramatic film roles. Most memorable, perhaps, are his portrayal of Patch Adams, unconventional physician; and the wise, but unorthodox professor in Dead Poet’s Society. He always played an eccentric–it suited his unique talent.
