Isn't SMG reportedly a diva? Wonder how will they get along....
Was Robin Williams ever funny?
Like him as a dramatic actor?
Fortunately, actors in David E. Kelley shows are never encouraged to ham it up for the camera.
Crazy Ones aka Mad Men
He actually looks good: a weathered character actor, a pleasing presence. But then, the needy hyper-schtick starts and never stops. The promo is a terrible warning.
Writing comedy FOR Robin Williams has never worked, never will work. His eyes are fabulous for dramatic roles, but that's it. Funniest man alive when unscripted.
"Funniest man alive when unscripted."
I've never understood why he is funny. I know I'm in the minority, but I don't think never shutting the fuck up is "funny".
Damn. He's back off the wagon.
That show is going to flop, I got board just watching the YouTube clip.
Drugs aside, Robin used to be funny when he was younger. Kind of quick witted rapid fire with a little edge.
But now, its almost as if he is doing a shtick of himself in the safety zone.
I am guessing corporate suits had a hand in this failure. "robin, you cant say things like drugs are fun, lets tone it down until its boring"
He's not funny when he's unscripted. He just keeps repeating the same stuff he did during his Live at the Met stand-up back in the 80s. Seriously, grab yourself a copy of it and hear for yourself. Aladdin, The Bird Cage, especially Good Morning Vietnam all have "ad libs" which are really just repeats of his old stand-up.
I love when he does voices and funny accents! I NEVER know what's coming! I'm gonna go hang out at UCB!
He's never been funny to me. Ever. Mork & Mindy? Stand up act? No & no. And he's cringeworthy in every single syrupy sappy role.
Is he still very hairy?
I like SMG for some reason, she really seems to have talent. I feel like her and Reese were gunning for the same career.
R18, SMG was much more appealing in Cruel Intentions.
I have a little crush on Hamish Linklater. Sorry to see him involved in this, it looks awful.
I don't generally laugh when someone is annoying me. Williams is obnoxious. Always has been. He can be decent in certain dramatic roles.
I'd much rather see this show than have to sit through "Good Morning Vietnam" one more time.
No doubt he's a legend, but why does he keep getting work? He hasn't been funny or successful in years?
Yawn. Never thought he was funny. Whatever he tried to do, Jonathan Winters did it better...and first.
Looks awful. Will be canceled mid-season.
Robin Williams' career for at least the last thirty years is an impersonation of an effeminate gay man. Jumping up from his chair and manically mincing around shouting Fosse,Fosse,Fosse and the rest of his shtick. It makes my skin crawl, because you know the kinds of assholes who never get tired of that shit.
It doesn't seem that he is an asshole,really,but that shit is not doing us any good!?
He was good in 24 hour photo(?),and an out there film where he creates post-mortum film tributes from video chips future humans have implanted in their retinas(?).
