Both Big Jim and Myself are truly devastated by the loss of one of our all time favorite actor/comedian Robin Williams who tragically took his own life at the age of 63. We felt it was extremely important to pay tribute to his life and his body of work. Here are some quick facts about the actor:

  • nominated for Best Actor three times
  • won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Good Will Hunting
  • won two Emmy Awards, four Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and five Grammy Awards
  • attended Juilliard with Christopher Reeve
  • loved video games ... named his daughter after Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda video game
  • Robin's final Instragram: "#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams!" Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday @zeldawilliams Love you!"
  • loved cycling and owned 50 bikes
  • drove a Toyota Prius
  • always wanted to play The Riddler in a Batman movie
  • supported St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
  • Robin has four new movies that have yet to be released: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Merry Friggin’ Christmas, Boulevard, and Absolutely Anything
