Yeah, I wish some TV station would give a marathon of that show soon. Hell, TVLand did a marathon for Andy Griffith when he passed on.

And don't forget he was a good "straight" actor, too: "Good Will Hunting", "Awakenings", "Insomnia", and "One Hour Photo", are the films I can remember seeing him in.

We can add "The Final Cut" to your list.

A few days ago, I saw "[url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1262981/World's Greatest Dad[/url]" for the first time. His character in that movie says:
Quote:
I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, but it's not. The worst thing is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.
That movie's billed as a comedy/drama, but imo he leaned more heavily on his "straight" acting talents.

Different subject but worth sharing...

Robin Williams went to see Christopher Reeve when he was in the hospital.

Christopher Reeve's memory of it:
Quote:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5670220.html
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
