Actor Robin Williams found dead in apparent suicide

Winner of a Grammy in 2003 for best spoken comedy album, “Robin Williams _ Live 2002,” Robin Williams, the Academy Award winner and comic supernova died yesterday in an apparent suicide. He was 63. From his breakthrough in the late 1970s as the alien in the hit TV show “Mork and Mindy,” and films as “Good Morning, Vietnam,” the short, barrel-chested Williams was  a laugh riot in drag in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” or as a cartoon genie in “Aladdin.” He won his Academy Award in a rare, but equally intense dramatic role, as a teacher in the 1997 film “Good Will Hunting.” For those unaware about “Mrs. Doubtfire”, this was the same film that got made with Kamal Haasan as Chachi 420. May his soul Rest in Peace.
