“When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.”

So true are the words of John Keating, the character from the movie Dead Poets Society portrayed by Robin Williams in an Oscar-nominated performance. The actor’s death, tragic in that a man who gave the world so much joy could never appear to possess joy himself, continues to startle Hollywood. There are few performers we could call “genius,” but Williams was one of them, an irrefutably gifted comic-turned-actor who was as much a poetic dramatic actor as he was a comedic revelation.

Many tributes to Robin Williams have surface since the actor’s passing on Monday, one of which was a new beautiful image released by The Walt Disney Company of the Genie, the character that Williams so iconically voiced in Disney’s 1992 animated film Aladdin.

The film was adapted for the stage in 2011, and earlier this year it made its Broadway debut. At the end of yesterday’s performance at NYC’s New Amsterdam Theatre, the cast of Disney’s Aladdin musical paid tribute to Williams by leading the audience in a rousing singalong of the Genie’s signature song, “Friend Like Me.”

You can watch the fan-filmed video here below of the singalong, which was led by James Monroe Iglehart, who plays the Genie on stage. (UPDATE – Disney has released a video of the tribute as well, which is now here below.)

Robin Williams in Disney's Flubber

While the world is still in shock over the death of Robin Williams, those who knew and loved the 63-year-old old actor are taking to social media to pay tribute to him. People like Edgar Wright, Conan O’Brien, John Travolta, Bill Cosby, and Ben Stiller, along with former co-stars, musicians, and many many more have been sharing their thoughts about the Academy Award-winning actor, who made so many people smile with his work on and off screen.

Robin Williams appeared in several projects for the Walt Disney Company, including TV’s Mork & Mindy, 1988’s Good Morning, Vietnam (for which he earned his first Oscar nod), and the 1992 animated feature Aladdin, in which he voiced the Genie. In tribute, the studio released an image of the Genie in the sky created from stars. See the image here below.

Actor Robin Williams Found Dead [Updated]

Robin Williams

Robin Williams, a comedic jack of all trades who dazzled audiences for over four decades, was found dead of what sources believe to be a suicide*. He was 63.

For Williams and the generations who loved his absolutely every move, he leaves behind a legacy where for many, he was the king of his crafts. Weaning his inspirations from people such as Jonathan Winters, Robin Williams pioneered a sort of manic improvisation of Mack Truck coming at you at 100 miles an hour style of comedy that could make anyone laugh, hard. Just witness people like Johnny Carson, (and many others of Carson’s ilk and stature) to the every man, just in stitches at the craziness and what seemed intrinsic zaniness that emanated like running tap water from Robin Williams.

Robin Williams, Mrs. Doubtfire

If the family comedy Mrs. Doubtfire were a human being, it would be old enough to drink come this fall. That is to say, everyone involved in the movie is much older now.

Even so, it’s being reported that a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is being attempted once again. Original star Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are both attached to the project, and Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum is penning the script.
