News of Robin Williams‘s death hit me pretty hard yesterday, completely out of the blue and pretty much changed the course the rest of the rest of my day. I had started a bit of packing and was digging things out of my closets for packing and purging which, honestly, was already an emotional experience for me. It’s not fun to find old photos, cards, letters, etc. that one would rather not encounter all at once but it’s part of the process of moving on. I took a bit of a break and was met with the shocking news of Robin‘s death. Honestly, I couldn’t go back to the work of packing. I did meet up with Emma and Josh for dinner as a way to distract myself and we had a great time together. More »
The 4 new films he left behind
The late Robin Williams has always been a prolific actor and, as such, it should come as no surprise that he has left behind a batch of new films that will be released in the coming months. Earlier this year, it was reported that Williams had wrapped filming production of the sequel film Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb which is due for release this coming holiday season (you can watch the first trailer for Night at the Museum above). Additionally, Robin had successfully filmed movies titled Merry Friggin’ Christmas (due out in early November), the British film Absolutely Anything (due out next year) and a drama titled Boulevard (which debuted at the TriBeca Film Festival earlier this year but has yet to be picked up by a studio for theatrical release). But while these 4 films will eventually make their way to movie theaters, I have to believe that plans for the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel that was reported last April will be cancelled. I cannot imagine that anyone will think it’s a good idea to move forward with a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 without Robin Williams in the lead role. I hope it is of some comfort to fans that there are still a few opportunities to see Robin in new movie projects in the coming months. For me, personally, I will hang on to and cherish the body of work that he has left behind. Through his new films and old, Robin Williams will remain with us forever.

Welp … I guess the plan to bring the music of Tupac Shakur to the Broadway stage was too ambitious or not well-executed or whatever because we learn today that the show is closing early due to nonexistent ticket sales. Holler If Ya Hear Me opened on the Great White Way just a few weeks ago and never really caught on with either 2pac fans or Broadway fans. Because the show turned out to be a bomb, producers have decided to close the show early in order to cut their losses while they can. After only 38 performances (not including previews), Holler If Ya Hear Me will Peace the Spork Out this Sunday. More »
