Robin Williams was involved with four films at the time of his death. Those projects have winded their way to completion, leaving only his final role to be revealed to the public. Suitably, it was Robin Williams making people laugh.
The film is called Absolutely Anything, and stars Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Eddie Izzard and the voices of the Monty Python crew.
In the film, Simon Pegg is Neil Clarke, “an ordinary guy who is bestowed with superpowers from a group of power-crazed aliens bent on destroying planet Earth. If he uses his powers for good, Earth will be spared. If he uses his powers for evil, then they will blow up the planet.”
Upon receiving his powers, one of the first things Neil Clarke does is grant his dog the power to speak. The dog speaks with the voice of Robin Williams.
“Biscuits. Biscuits. Please, please, please. Nothing else matters,” the dog says. “Come to think of it, I wouldn’t mind shagging your leg right now.”
Robin Williams life was dedicated to making people laugh. After his death, people came out of the woodwork to tell stories of how he took time to talk to them in restaurants, sit with them and make them feel better.
Comedian Kevin Pollak recently dedicated his documentary “Misery Loves Comedy’ to the memory of Robin Williams. The film talks with numerous comedians about the core misery that is often common to people who make it their lot in life to make others laugh.
Kevin Pollak says of Robin Williams:
“He was a mentor of mine when I started out in San Francisco at age 20. He had become a made man from ‘Mork and Mindy,’ but he chose to spend most of his time in San Francisco where he would raise his family and mentor some comedians like myself and Dana Carvey. He was just a friend. He appeared in some specials of mine. Over the years he meant so much to me.”
