Right now it's being treated as a suicide.

I never even knew he was having any kinds of problems.

Man.  His performances in Dead Poets and Good Will Hunting are two of my favorite on screen.

Amazing actor.

Dueling threads, oh no!

Depression is a bitch, even for the rich and successful. I wonder if he had physical medical issues as well or if it's a "tears of a clown" situation. Sad, regardless.

Man, crazy that he survived this long with all of his drug and alcohol issues only to succumb to depression.  What a shame.

im guessing that they're all connected. I'm totally gutted. These celebrity deaths rarely affect me but this one is different.

I was surprised to see he was only 63.  He was actually a couple years younger than my parents.  Not that 63 is young, but I thought he was like 10 years older than that.

A great article about his children:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/12/robin-williams-quote-about-daughter_n_5671207.html?ir=Books&utm_hp_ref=books

Quote
In a Reddit AMA that Williams hosted almost one year ago, the dad of three was asked what still gives him a sense of wonder, and also what his favorite book was. His answer, now, is chilling:

    "My children give me a great sense of wonder. Just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings. And a favorite book as a child? Growing up, it was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe -- I would read the whole C.S. Lewis series out loud to my kids. I was once reading to Zelda, and she said 'don't do any voices. Just read it as yourself.' So I did, I just read it straight, and she said 'that's better.'"

Agree with this as well, this one sucks.  He was so good, and likeable.

This signature is intentional, ie not a mistake.  If you thing Rick Perry should be forced to resign for this crap, you're part of the problem with our country.  Give me a freaking break.

I heard about this yesterday but held off on posting.  I have no words to describe how bad I feel for him and his family.  If you've ever been depressed, you know how it feels to be low enough to take that route out.  If you haven't, then count your blessings and pray you never find yourself in that state of mind.  

Robin, you will be missed.  you were unique and even when you weren't at your best form, you were at least unexpected.

I've been slowly remembering his great performances all day today. I definitely took him for granted these last few years, what with the more disappointing and, in my opinion, pandering mainstream stuff like Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, and especially the Night at the Museum dreck. The recent Louis guest appearance really hits you in the gut, considering the last dialogue between him and CK. Yes, this one hurts. It hurts deep. frown
