You really can't get any more iconic than Robin Williams, whose performances ranged from the silly and funny to the strange and heartwarming, and everything in between. There wasn't a scene he didn't give his all to, nor a performance that was too crazy to take on. Some of our favorites include Mork & Mindy, Popeye, Good Morning, Vietnam, Dead Poets Society (O Captain! My Captain!), The Fisher King, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Good Will Hunting, One Hour Photo, and World's Greatest Dad.
Williams is a legend and a pure entertainer whose rich, soulful roles entertained many of us throughout our entire lives. He will be missed.
