ROBOTS

ROBIN WILLIAMS (Fender) first captured the attention of the world as Mork from Ork on the hit series "Mork & Mindy.” Born in Chicago and raised in Michigan and California, he trained at New York's Julliard School under John Houseman.

An Academy Award-winning actor and a multiple Grammy-winning performer unparalleled in the scope of his imagination, Williams continues to enhance his repertoire of indelible characters with several upcoming projects.

In addition to ROBOTS, Williams co-stars in the Lions Gate release "House of D,” directed by David Duchovny. In the drama, Williams portrays a mentally challenged 40 year-old friend of a delivery boy. Most recently, Williams completed principal photography on Mark Mylod's "The Big White,” a black comedy co-starring Holly Hunter, Woody Harrelson and Giovanni Ribisi.

In 1997, Williams received Academy and Screen Actors Guild® awards for his performance as Sean Maguire, the therapist who counsels Matt Damon's title character, a math genius, in Gus Van Sant's "Good Will Hunting.” The Academy previously nominated Williams for best actor in "The Fisher King,” "Dead Poets Society,” and "Good Morning Vietnam.” Williams garnered a special honor from the National Board of Review for his performance opposite Robert De Niro in "Awakenings.”

Williams' filmography includes a number of blockbusters. In 1993, he starred in Chris Columbus' "Mrs. Doubtfire.” For Mike Nichols, Williams portrayed Armand Goldman, in "The Birdcage,” for which the cast won a SAG ensemble award. In 1996, "The Birdcage” and "Jumanji” reached the $100 million mark in the United States in exactly the same week. Williams assumed the dual roles of Peter Pan/Peter Banning in Steven Spielberg's "Hook” and played a medical student who treats patients with humor in "Patch Adams.” Other blockbusters included the aforementioned "Good Will  Hunting,” "Dead Poet's Society” and "Good Morning,Vietnam”; plus "Flubber” and "Aladdin.”

Williams collaborated with two accomplished young directors: Christopher Nolan and Mark Romanek. For Nolan, Williams starred in "Insomnia” opposite Al Pacino as reclusive novelist Walter Finch, the primary suspect in the murder of a teenage girl in a small Alaskan town in "Insomnia.” In Romanek's "One Hour Photo,” Williams played a photo lab employee who becomes obsessed with a young suburban family. Recently, Williams starred as a cutter (a person with the power to edit individuals' recorded histories) in Omar Naim's sci-fi thriller ‘The Final Cut,” co-starring Mira Sorvino and James Caviezel.

Williams' early motion picture credits include Paul Mazursky's "Moscow on the Hudson,” in which he played a Russian musician who decides to defect, and "The World According to Garp,” George Roy Hill's adaptation of John Irving's acclaimed best-selling novel about a writer and his feminist mother. He made his cinematic debut as the title character in Robert Altman's "Popeye.”

Williams, who began his career as a stand-up comedian, is well known for monologues in which he makes free associative leaps punctuated by one-liners about subjects as varied as politics, history, religion, ethnic strife and sex. Using only his voice, Williams created one of the most vivid characters in recent memory – "Aladdin's” Blue Genie of the Lamp (which redefined how animations are voiced). For audio versions of his one-man shows and the children's record "Pecos Bill,” Williams won five Grammy Awards. His stage credits include a landmark production of Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot,” directed by Mike Nichols, co-starring Steve Martin, and, most recently, a short run in San Francisco of "The Exonerated.”
