We bring you some truly sad news tonight. Robin Williams was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide by asphyxiation. Reports from the family spokesperson say that the actor was suffering from depression and recently entered a 12-step rehab stint for drug abuse.
I’m not sure there’s a single actor who has brought more people more joy in the past 40 years than Robin Williams. From the start with Mork and Mindy to classics like Good Morning, Vietnam to more dramatic turns like Good Will Hunting to darker stints like 1 Hour Photo, you knew that if Robin Williams was in it you’d be getting something at the very least intriguing and at the very best life changing. His brand of humor and style was unique and will be sorely missed. I think that might be why this in particular hurts so much; we’re missing a man who helped bring a bit of happiness into our lives over and over.
God damn I played the fuck out of that Hook VHS. You will be missed, Mr. Williams.[via Variety]
