He won an Oscar for his performance in Gus Van Sant's "Good Will Hunting,” and garnered previous Academy Award nominations for his work in "The Fisher King,” "Dead Poets Society” and "Good Morning Vietnam.” Williams has also received six Golden Globe awards, including the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Additionally, he shared the National Board of Review Best Actor Award with Robert De Niro for "Awakenings,” and, in 2004, he received the prestigious Career Achievement Award from the Chicago International Film Festival.

More recently, Williams lent his voice talents to the Oscar-winning animated feature "Happy Feet,” and played Theodore Roosevelt in the blockbuster holiday comedy "Night at the Museum.” In the same year, he also starred in Barry Levinson's political satire "Man of the Year,” the hit comedy "RV” for director Barry Sonnenfeld, and Patrick Stettner's dark thriller "The Night Listener,” opposite Toni Collette.

Following "License to Wed,” Williams will be seen this fall in Kirsten Sheridan's "August Rush,” with Freddie Highmore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Terrence Howard. He is currently filming the buddy comedy "Old Dogs” opposite John Travolta. The film is slated for release in 2008.

Williams first captured the world's attention as Mork from Ork on the popular television series "Mork & Mindy.” He trained at New York's Julliard School and made his cinematic debut as the title character in Robert Altman's "Popeye.” He followed up with starring roles in Paul Mazursky's "Moscow on the Hudson” and "The World According to Garp,” George Roy Hill's adaptation of John Irving's acclaimed bestselling novel.

His filmography also includes such hit films as Chris Columbus' "Mrs. Doubtfire,” Mike Nichols' "The Birdcage,” Tom Shadyac's "Patch Adams,” Steven Spielberg's "Hook” and Joe Johnston's "Jumanji.” Williams lent his voice talents in creating the memorable character of the Genie in the blockbuster adventure "Aladdin” and voiced the character of Fendor in the 2005 animated feature "Robots.” Additionally, he was the voice of Dr. Know in Steven Spielberg's "Artificial Intelligence: AI.”

Williams began his career as a stand-up comedian and is well known for his free-associative monologues. In 2002, after a 16-year absence from the stand-up scene, he hit the road with a sold-out 26-date U.S. tour. With its last stop on Broadway, the one-man show was filmed as "Robin Williams: Live on Broadway” and garnered five Emmy Award nominations.

Offstage, Williams takes great joy in supporting philanthropic efforts around the world, benefiting health care, human rights, education and environmental protection. Last year, he presented "Comic Relief 2006” with Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg, a live concert to benefit families affected by Hurricane Katrina. To date, the Comic Relief organization has raised over $50 million.
