Remembering Robin Williams: His Life in Movies

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Robin Williams has died at 63 earlier today, and although this news is terribly sad, the truth is that Williams' talent will live on with his incredible breadth of work on the silver screen.

Williams could do it all. 

From animated films that became iconic roles for Williams (Aladdin) to his Oscar-winning turn that can be seen when you watch Good Will Hunting online, there is little doubt that Williams was a national treasure. 

Although he was most known for his comedy work, like his first film that truly announced him to the world (Popeye), it was his next film that showed he could also do drama with the best of them (The World According to Garp). 

Williams will be sorely missed and his loss has left a huge hole in the talent pool here in Hollywood.
