Robin Williams' passing is a crushing blow. The man was one of the funniest men alive, and his acting talents were enormous. With unyielding energy, he was engaging in both comedic and dramatic roles, which is rare and often overlooked. He's gone too soon, and it's going to be tough watching his work from now on. Still, his lighter material will remain just as warm and funny as he was.
Here's a quick look at five of my favorite Robin Williams moments. Three are from his films, while the other two are related to movies and/or acting. I could've listed WAY more, but these five clips are what I love most about the late Robin Williams.
Good Morning, Vietnam
As Adrian Cronauer, Robin's first radio appearance is classic.
Critics' Choice Awards
When Robin lost Best Actor at the 8th Critics' Choice Awards, hilarity ensued.
Good Will Hunting
This moment has always felt so honest to me. Bravo, sir.
Inside the Actors Studio
Robin's brilliant piece of improvisation never fails to make me laugh.
This film was a big part of my childhood, and Robin doing voices is a delight.
