Comedian/Actor Robin Williams Commits Suicide by Hanging

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

My favorite Robin Williams movie is Mrs. Doubtfire. Or maybe Goodwill Hunting. Or Dead Poets... How do you choose the favored child of a comic genius??? The world is diminished without his brilliance.

He had a drug problem recently and was broke which is why he started doing movies again.

Sad news. The cable TV series was okay but not great, he seemed to cringe through delivering some of it. The outtakes after each episode were way more funny than the scripted material.

Robin Williams was always one of my favorite actors... sad to see him go.

I hear that Inside the Actor's Studio is pretty much an American thing... so I'll share his moment on there here for many who may not have seen it:

I wonder if they will show pictures from inside Robin Williams' apartment in California where he hanged himself and his body was found.

I get so used to the media here, but I'm guessing Marin County Sheriff's Department doesn't do that.

I guess the official op Topsy report won't be released until tomorrow, and surfaced pictures from inside his apartment will never come out.

I think he's too well-liked! People would lay scorn on the invasion of his personal privacy, at a vulnerable time.

Gruesome! But he is no longer wracked with depression and probably the voices in that manic genius head of his.

I say he's done enough, his body of work is legendary, and would be a tough act to top.

I hate to say it, but look what Steve Martin turned into? Not exactly a happy ending, with his choice of movies and [ sound of a sad horn ] waa-waa flops.

Now his legend has a tragic air of mystery and mania. RIP, I'm glad he made it so far. He is survived by 3 children.

I think my favourite thing he did was the Genie voice-over in the Aladdin movie.

I think in his movies a lot was unscripted. He was left to adlib and improvise. A gifted man, more so then most in Hollywood.
There is still Jim Carrey...
