Can you please change the title of this thread, he was far more than just Mrs Doubtfire?

As for the genius Robin Williams, I am absolutely gutted. It's going to be a sad day for me and many others.

Depression often goes hand in

Depression often goes hand in hand with brilliance.......one of my favorite comic actors. RIP.

So talented, in so many

So talented, in so many varied roles.  A sad loss that will hopefully raise awareness of the terrible impact that depression can have.

I understand he has made

I understand he has made another couple of movies, so at least we will get to see him in some new movies again, which will be great.

I really wish PP would change

I really wish PP would change the thread title, to me it's incredibly disrespectful. I'd understand if it was RIP Superman for Christopher Reeve or someone else who was predominantly  known for one major role, but Robin Williams was a one off, and could play comedy and straight roles equally as well. 

My wife awoke me this morning with the news, and I have to admit to smiling quite broadly when I heard it, that is until I realised that I'd misheard her, and it was actually Robin Williams, and not Robbie Williams as I first thought. 

Hey god, it's Robbie you wanted, not Robin, he's one of the good guys.

BBB, you shouldn't find it disrespectful. I titled in that way because, along with 'Good Morning Vietnam', were the two films I most remember him by. Ask any average 'Charley' down the street to name two films by Williams and I'd be surprised if most didn't name those two.

FWIW, they (Williams and writers I presume) were allegedly in talks to reprise Mrs. Doubtfire. That was earlier this year.

Yet another great talent wasted.

So the death of someone would have given you pleasure? You really are quite an unpleasant person, aren't you?

It seems that us Robin Williams fans (despite the very sad news) still have a sense of humour; Robbie Williams fans (English ladies of a certain age) on the other hand, don't.

Anyway, if I had a choice between the two to leave this mortal coil, the fat dancer from Take That would get my vote. Unfortunately, we didn't get a vote.

Fair enough, but it wouldn't hurt to change the thread title still.

Wrong on all three points, I'm afraid, and it was nothing to do with being a Robbie Williams fan (which I'm not), but rather about your potential revelling in the death of another human being.

Sorry, just make that 'a human being'.
