Robin’s co-stars also expressed sentiments about the actor:

Williams had three movies in post-production, including a sequel to the popular Night of the Museum titled Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tombdue out in December. However like many others in show business, he fought with alcoholism, drug addiction, and depression over the years.

Whether a fan of his comedy, film, voice work or his engaging spirit, Robin Williams will be greatly missed. When studying his career perhaps we can take comfort in his famous quote, “Comedy is an act of optimism.” ~Andrea Hodgins

    My favourite Williams picture will always be THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, but WHAT DREAMS MAY COME is incredibly moving and a classic waiting to be rediscovered.

    He was great in Stripes, Vacation, and Caddyshack. I am heartbroken that he will never get to make Ghostbusters 3 or another Vacation. Was the other driver drunk or on drugs?
